Recipe for Salmon Cakes

Serves 2 – 3

Time: 20 minutes

What you’ll need:

2 cans wild sockeye salmon (426 grams), drained and bones removed

2 eggs, lightly beaten

2 Glutino gluten free table crackers, finely crushed

2 tablespoons finely diced white onion

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (cheddar or mozzarella will work also)

salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon oil (Olive will work. We like to use canola.)


What you’ll do:

Throw everything together in a bowl and stir.  Yup, other than the actual cooking, that’s about it!

Heat oil in skillet over medium heat until the oil begins to shimmer.

While the pan is heating, make your cakes by scooping the salmon mixture into 1/4 – 1/2 cup gobs. Work each gob into a ball with your hands, and then flatten them slightly to form cakes.

Place carefully in hot pan. Fry for approximately 10 minutes, flipping every so often to prevent burning.

TIP: Flip carefully, as the cakes are delicate until cooked through.

And now you are DONE! Off to the next thing, which is likely eating dinner….
