Tired of the same old same old grilled salmon I usually make, I did a little Pinterest-ing last night and found a yummy looking salmon cake recipe. And since it's been a while since I shared a recipe...
Doesn't everything taste better battered, breaded and fried?
That's what my husband said at least.
Fresh Salmon Cakes
1.5 lbs salmon filet
3 eggs beaten
1C bread crumbs (I don't usually have Panko, so day old or toasted bread blended or food processed works well)
Zest and juice of 1 lemon + 1T
2T fresh parsley minced
2t chill powder
2T olive oil
1. Melt butter in a hot skillet and cook the fish through - about 5 minutes per side depending on the thickness.
2. While the fish cools, mix the rest of the ingredients together - leaving out the olive oil. Chill for a minimum of 30 minutes.
3. Divide the salmon mixture into 6 equal portions and form a patty with your hands, packing it together quite firmly. Return to the fridge for 45 minutes to an hour.
4. Heat the olive oil in your skillet and brown the cakes on both sides. It may take 2 batches, depending on the size of your skillet.
I recommend serving them hot on caesar salad (what we did) or on a brown rice and veggie bowl (what we're doing with the leftovers). Even my boys loved them. Delish!
Oh, and here's my baby sitting up. Where has the time gone?
