Summary:  XXXX

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which lower blood pressure and reduce risk factors for disease. It's also a great source of protein to protect your bones and muscles, plus it contains lots of B vitamins, potassium and other essential vitamins. It's a nutritional powerhouse!

Serve these salmon cakes from Earth Fare and food blogger Claudia Laffin with a green salad or brown rice and your favorite vegetables for a filling, healthy dinner.

Ingredients:  XXXX

1.5 lbs. skinless wild-caught Alaskan coho or sockeye salmon fillet
½ cup plus 4 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 scallions sliced thin, about 4 tablespoons
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sriracha
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
4-6 tablespoons coconut or olive oil
For the dill sauce:
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped


Preparation:  XXXX

  1. Finely chop the salmon into ¼-inch pieces. It's best to do this by hand because you'll have more control over the size, but you could also do this in a food processor. Just be careful to not pulverize the salmon chunks. You want to have nice pieces of salmon in the cakes. Set aside in a medium bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 4 tablespoons of panko and the mayonnaise, lemon juice, scallions, mustard, sriracha, salt and pepper. Mix well, then gently mix into the salmon until combined.
  3. Place the remaining ½ cup panko onto a plate. Using a 1/3-cup measure, scoop level amounts of the salmon mixture and place on a piece of wax paper or plate. Repeat to make 8 cakes. Carefully coat each cake in panko bread crumbs, gently patting the panko on.
  4. In 2 batches, heat 2-3 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Place 4 salmon cakes in a skillet and cook without moving until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Very carefully flip the cakes and cook until second side is golden brown. Transfer cakes to a paper towel-lined plate, and repeat with second batch.
  5. Mix the dill sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Serve with salmon cakes.
