fresh bread crumbs
fresh parsley, chopped
chopped green onions
minced fresh dill weed
fresh lemon juice
ground black pepper
1 (14.75 ounce) can
The first time I cooked this recipe, I found it decent but a little bland. On second time I substituted a pound of fresh salmon, poached, for the canned and threw 2 tsps "Old Bay Seasoning" (available in most grocery stores) in the mixture, and found that this worked wonders!
I found the original recipe a little bland and dry, but the ideas this recipe spawned lead me to this.
I substituted fresh salmon that I pulsed in the food processor; (to form small chunks) used fresh bread crumbs along with a couple of tsps of Old Bay.
The cakes I made were thin,(like 6 oz hamburger patties) so the salmon would cook before they browned too much.
I cooked them using half butter and oil.
It imparts a little better flavor then oil alone.
They were extremely moist!!!
I've used two sauces: first, I tried a dill flavored Hollandaise.
Next, I made a Brown Butter and found the nutty flavor worked great.
These will 'set up' nicely if they are refrigerated for an hour before cooking. A wonderful way to use that bit of left-over barbecued salmon after your fishing trip! Our family of 'picky' seafood eaters...love this one!
OOPs I left out the lemon juice, but it was really GOOD. I will use this recipe from now on, I will try the lemon juice next time. The only other thing I changed is I cooked it in olive oil cooking spray. Not the Great buttery flavor, but a small sacrifice for low calorie/fat. Thank You for sharing. rhkatz3
Had to increase to 12 servings for my large family but went over VERY well. I had to limit the children or all else would have been forgotten save the salmon cakes! I fried in Olive oil and the flavor was great. I also mixed it all in the processor and saved another dirty dish, adding salmon at the very last and pulsing only a bit. Definitely a new family standard.
Just add white sauce with green onions in the sauce. This was really delicious
Excellent recipe. I only used half the dill as others suggested and it's good advice. You taste the dill but it's not overpowering. Makes a light, healthy, and satisfying meal.
Good. I had no parsley so substituded a combination lemon/dill seasoning(1/8c);omitting dill weed. Same thing but different!Very tasty recipe! cfrombc
