Pink Salmon Cakes with Dill and Mustard




Share on Tumblr

Recipe By Barton Seaver

This has become a weeknight favorite at our house. The cakes are inexpensive and easy to put together. Add a side dish, and you have dinner for four.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • Two 7 to 8-ounce cans pink salmon
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard
  • Pinch of ground mace
  • ¼ cup panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs) or fine dried bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Lemon wedges

Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
    2. Drain the salmon. Flake the fish into a bowl, being careful to remove any small bones or skin that may be mixed in. Season with salt and add the mayonnaise, mustard, mace, bread crumbs, and dill. Mix gently with your fingers until it is well combined. Form into four even patties about 1 inch thick and allow to sit for about 5 minutes to allow the bread crumbs to absorb the flavor.
    3. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, heat the butter until foaming. Add the salmon cakes and cook until they begin to turn golden on the edges, about 5 minutes. Don’t touch them while they’re browning. Once the edges have browned, transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 5 minutes to heat through. Flip the cakes onto plates and serve with lemon wedges.

Move Over, Kale Chips! Kale Buds Are Here

By Lari Robling - April 18th, 2012

High Tunnel farming caught my eye because its extended growing season adds to the amount of local produce we get. While farm manager Aviva Asher was tidying up the winter crop to make way for spring, I discovered another benefit of local growing: use what you’ve got.
