Salmon & Potato Cakes

Crab cakes are so yummy right??
 I never buy fresh crab, so I used Fresh Salmon instead. Came up with this recipe one day I had no idea what to make for dinner & it was an instant hit. I've made this many times, despite the
 ingredient list, they're fairly easy. Not to mention Delicious!!
I've only made this remoulade recipe once & really enjoyed the flavors.

(serves 4)

1/2 - 1 lb. Fresh Salmon (cut into even steaks)
2 large potatoes (cube)
1/4 onions (finely diced)
Fresh Thyme
Salt & Pepper

Flour (eyeball)
Egg wash (1-2 eggs & splash water, stir)
Panko Breadcrumbs

  1. Cube potatoes and place in a pot with salted water to boil. About 15mins or until tender.
  2. Drain and Set aside.
  3. Season Salmon with Salt & pepper (Pre-heat large skillet)
  4. Diced onion, add grape seed oil to skillet and saute 2 mins (until translucent).
  5. Add Salmon steaks and saute about 5-6 mins per side.
  6. Transfer Salmon & onions to a large glass bowl, add potato, thyme, and smash to combine.
Assembly Line:
1 plate egg wash, 1 plate breadcrumbs, & Salmon mixture.
**Pre heat large skillet & add Grape Seed Oil
Begin forming Salmon cakes (about the size of a palm or your preference)
  • Dip in egg wash
  • Dip in breadcrumbs
  • Add 3 to 4 Cakes to skillet and brown on both sides (2-3 mins. per side)
  • Set on a paper towel to allow excess grease to drip

Simple Remoulade Sauce:
(white sauce photographed)

1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp finely chopped scallions
2 Tbsp finely chopped sweet pickles (or relish)
dash garlic powder
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
few drops Worcestershire sauce
pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl & allow to set in the frig. for 1 hr.
This sauce really brightens up the Salmon Cakes. A relative of mine who's an amazing
 Chef suggested it, he was right! (No more ketchup) 

Serve with Your favorite Salad.
