Salmon Cakes

11924678_10205027027460190_1260643832_nDuring my childhood, the salmon cake was always one of my favorites. These tasty patties can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and it’s also an inexpensive meal that can feed up to 4 people per can. Enjoy!IMG_2696

1 can premium salmon, undrained and flaked with a fork
1 slice of bread, shredded
3 Tbsp chopped scallions
1 medium garlic clove, minced
1 Tbs fresh chopped dill or 1 teaspoon dried
3 Tbs minced green bell pepper (optional)
1 Tbs flour
1 egg
1 Tsp lemon zest
2 Tsp lemon juice
1/2 Tsp salt
1/2 Tsp black pepper
1/4 Tsp cayenne pepper
3 Tbsp olive oil

Pre-heat your oven to 350 F, and in a large bowl, gently mix together the salmon, bread, green onion, garlic, dill, bell pepper, flour, egg, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Form into 8 patties and refrigerate for about 1 hour to allow patties to “set”. Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Cook the patties until nicely browned on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and put it the oven for 10 minutes. Serve topped with a fried egg and sauce of your choice. Bon Appetit!
