Robust Recipe: Salmon Cakes
Salmon, a wonderful fish with plenty of anti-inflammatory, omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3’s may help reduce risk of heart disease, cancer, arthritis and other chronic diseases. These salmon cakes also have iron, calcium, protein and even a little fiber! They are easy to make and have a mild salmon flavor that’s very lovable.
Hope you enjoy these delicious and healthy cakes!
1 16oz can boneless, pink salmon drained and finely flaked (I have accidentally bought the canned salmon with bone and skin a couple times and it worked fine. You will just have to pick out the bone and skin. It is kind of a timely process but totally worth it ;)).
3/4 cup dried bread crumbs
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cup frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 large egg
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp fresh cracked pepper
1 tbsp canola oil
1) Combine the salmon, bread crumbs, cheese, corn, mayonnaise, egg, and all the spices in a bowl and mix until combined.
2) Shape the mixture into 8-10 patties (I like to make them smaller, they seem to stay together better) and if you want, coat or lightly sprinkle some extra bread crumbs on the patties.
3) Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, drizzle a little canola oil on the pan. Cook the patties until the bottoms are golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Flip the patties, and cook until golden brown, an additional 4-5 minutes.
Hope you like the salmon! Be sure to share and enjoy!
