Salmon CakesPosted: May 11, 2014
I love salmon. It’s such a lean, tasty protein, that can be used in so many different ways. Today’s variation is in the form of a fish cake. Hmmm, fish cakes!
This recipe asked for potatoes in the fish cakes. I’ve never seen a recipe like this before, and I’m always wiling and ready to try something new!

You will need:
- 4-5 medium potatoes
- 4 filets of fresh salmon
- 1 egg
- 1 lemon
- A handful of green onions
- 1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
Begin by chopping up your potatoes and bringing them to a boil. Next, chop the green onion stalks and throw them in a big bowl. Chop up the salmon filets, zest and juice your lemon and add to onions, then add egg. Once potatoes are done, add to the bowl, season and stir well to combine. Form into patties, and if baking in the oven, brush with canola of olive oil and bake at 400 until crispy and golden brown, turning once (about 20-30 mins). If frying, heat 2 tbsp canola oil in a pan and even cook both sides of the cakes. Serve on a bun with with your favourite toppings, or by itself, smothered in tzatziki. Enjoy!
