Refresh your spring recipes with these super delicious salmon cakes! With a few simple ingredients, you’ll have a beautiful versatile gourmet salmon dish. I served mine with baked yams, but they could be paired with almost anything.
This recipe makes 4 salmon cakes
4 ounces of salmon
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
A pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon adobo
About 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeño (you can use more or less depending on your preference)
1/2 tablespoon basil
About 1/4 cup chopped bell peppers (you can use more or less depending on your preference)
About 1 tablespoon chopped red onions (you can use more or less depending on your preference)
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 cup of breadcrumbs
4 tablespoon of mayonnaise (I used vegan mayo)
Optional (1 Egg)
First, prepare your salmon by cleaning and seasoning it and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 17 minutes.
While the salmon is baking, prepare your veggies and saute in a pan for 4 minutes. ( I used cooking spray instead of oil for this.)
After the salmon has finished baking, place in a bowl and shred.
Next, add the veggies, mayo, and breadcrumbs to the shredded salmon and mix. ( If you desire to add an egg, do so during this step.)
Finally, shape your mixture into circular cakes and fry in a pan with oil until golden brown on each side.
And viòla, you’ve got beautiful delicious salmon cakes!
These salmon cakes were SO AMAZING! I was shocked by how delicious they were. The execution was a lot easier than expected, the most difficult part was waiting for the salmon to bake. The cakes are very versatile and could definitely be served on a bun, with a salad, with pasta, or with your favorite veggies. I would rate these a 10/10 and will definitely be making them again, enjoy!
