Salmon Cakes

Earlier this week, I tried a recipe I've been meaning to make for awhile - Salmon Cakes from the Racing Weight Cookbook.

Salmon Cakes
Serves 2
*Recipe from the Racing Weight Cookbook

2 5 oz cans of boneless, skinless pink salmon, drained
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp ginger, minced
2 tsp garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper*
1/4 cup panko crumbs
1 egg
1/2 tsp sesame oil

Combine the salmon, green onions, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add in the panko and egg and mix until well combined. Form the mixture into six cakes. While forming the cakes, squeeze out any excess liquid.

Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet. When hot, add the salmon cakes. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until each side is golden brown.

I served these with a simple sauce made with plain Greek yogurt, a bit of lemon juice, salt, pepper and dill.

  1. I just made tuna patties for lunch next week! These look delicious, I have to give them a try.

  2. Tuna patties sound great, too! Let me know what you think when you try the recipe!

  3. Mmm salmon! I don't think I've ever had salmon cakes before, but these look delicious! And with that Greek yogurt sauce. Yum!

    1. And they only took about five minutes to mix up and get into a skillet to cook. My kind of recipe ;)
