Salmon cakes

I’ve posted a lot about Occasional-J lately, so I thought I’d post about food again. It is, after all, why I originally created this blog. Here’s a recipe I made for some salmon cakes. I created them after finding a recipe for crab cakes that sounded quite amazing. However, salmon was on sale at the grocery store, so I improvised. Plus, I love salmon. I think this would be good with tuna or another firm fish too. I’ll be quiet now so you can get to cooking.

Salmon Cakes

1 lb. Salmon, cut into chunks
½ cup panko bread crumbs
1 Egg, beaten
2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp Seafood Seasoning
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp dried dill
2 tsp lemon juice
Extra virgin olive oil or butter (for sauteing)

Combine all ingredients except salmon and oil in a bowl. Gently fold in salmon and chill for one hour.

Preheat skillet and coat with oil. Use ½ cup to measure even cake sizes and drop into hot pan. Sauté the cakes over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side, adding more olive oil or butter if needed.
