Lindy’s Salmon Cakes

What are the Ford’s having for dinner tonight?

This is a recipe that I developed and to be honest, we are having this tonight because I’ve been with patients all day and I forgot to get something else out of the freezer. The directions say to chill and that is best, but sometimes I cheat and don’t chill (because I’m throwing this together at the last minute).

Not to say, my family doesn’t love salmon cakes. Bryan is not a big salmon guy, but he really likes this dish. It reminds him of his childhood when his mom made cod cakes (his mom is a phenomenal cook, me, not so much). These are easy to make and packed with omega-3’s. I like to make extras so I can reheat and eat for breakfast the next day.

LINDY’S SALMON CAKES

Servings: 3 – 4

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups fresh salmon, flaked or canned salmon (must be wild caught pacific or Alaskan; canned may have soft bones which can be removed or easily broken into salmon. They are not harmful)
  • 1 Tbls mayo (not reduced fat)
  • ½ cup almond, cashew or coconut meal flour (Bob’s Red Meal is a good choice)
  • 3 tsp finely chopped onion
  • 2 tsp finely chopped celery (optional)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbls fresh dill, basil or parsley, chopped (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbls cold pressed oil (Hain, Hollywood or Spectrum)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Remove all bones from salmon.
  2. Combine salmon, mayo, herbs, onion, salt, pepper and egg and mix well.
  3. Form into 6 patties and chill for at least 2 hours (best if chilled, but still good if not).
  4. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.
  5. Cook patties in single layer, about 6-8 minutes, turning once until golden brown.
  6. Serve with sour cream or lemon wedges if desired.
