    Directions

    It’s always good to incorporate more fish into your diet and these salmon cakes definitely make it fun! I kept these gluten free (no breadcrumbs) which keeps them light and juicy. I highly recommend adding the red bell pepper as it adds color and sweetness. Fresh corn is also a great option. If you like it spicy, try jalapeño as well.

    About the Salmon

    If you bought fresh, wild caught salmon simply roast it in the oven. Add about 1 tbsp of olive oil and lightly rob it all over the salmon then sprinkle the top with about 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Roast in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Then allow to cool and place into a large bowl.

    If you bought canned salmon, simply drain any excess liquid and place into a large bowl.

    Make The Mix

    To your cooked salmon, add the minced onion, small diced bell pepper, the chopped parsley, chives, 2 whole eggs and the salt and pepper. Use a fork to mix everything until well combined.

    Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 45 minutes to an hour. This will allow the ingredients to combine and adhere better when you are ready to form them into patties. You can try and form and fry them now but they will most likely fall apart.

    Fry The Salmon Cakes

    Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and add about 2 tbsp of olive oil to a large skillet and heat on medium-high. Once the oil is hot, form the patties. I use a medium size ice cream scoop to make sure all patties are the same size. As you scoop the mixture and form the patties, squeeze out any excess liquids. This mixture will make about 11 cakes.

    Place the patties in your hot skillet, lower the heat to medium and pan fry for 2-3 minutes on each side.

    Serve

    While the patties are frying make a greek yourt sauce. To a small bowl, add 1/3 cup greek yogurt, the juice of 1 lemon, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tsp of maple syrup or honey. Mix well.

    Serve the patties over a bed of lettuce with the greek yogurt sauce and a squeeze of lemon.
