Salmon Cakes

Thursday, 23 July 2009

After last month's daring cooks challenge, I am left with lots of leftover powders. It's a shame to throw them all away after all the 'hard work', so I've been trying to incorporate them into my recent dishes. The onion/caper powder is particularly versatile as it is salty - I use it as a salt substitute in pastas, stews, casseroles...Here is a very simple dish seasoned with the onion/ caper powder. And I served it with some home-made sambal belacan!


salmon cakes (2)


Ingredients: 6 fish cakes

  • 1 can (418g) skinless & boneless salmon
  • 1 handful coriander - finely chopped
  • 6 kaffir lime leaves - finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp onion/ caper powder (optional)
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt
For coating:

  • 1 egg - beaten
  • about 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs

Directions:

  • Mix together salmon, coriander, kaffir lime leaves, egg, onion/caper powder and panko.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Divide salmon mixture into 6 equal portions and shape them.
  • To coat, place beaten egg and panko on 2 separate plates.
  • One by one, dip the salmon cakes in beaten egg, shake off excess egg then coat the cakes with panko. Shake off excess panko.
  • Heat up a bit of oil in a pan.
  • Fry the salmon cakes until golden brown (about 2 mins each side).

i love fish cakes... I made slat cod cakes for brunch with a quail egg. I love how they shift you perspective of fish.

Anwyays, it is interesting to see the lime leaf chopped finely as I usually think of it as kept whole.

lookin' good.

Salmons are very tasty. I bet these fish cakes rocks!

Tangled Noodle said...

These look perfect! I can imagine these tasty cakes in a soft roll to make a delicious sandwich.

I'm also trying to use up what I have in my kitchen instead of just tossing them without care, as I used to do in the past. It may mean being experimental or changing up a recipe but it's nice to know that you make full use of what you already have!

Grace said...

you know, i think the secret to fooling myself into enjoying fish is to put it in cake form. perhaps that'll be my next endeavor. :)

Jo said...

Looks delicious and a great way to use up all the left overs into versatile recipes.

Great photos. I could probably eat a salmon cake one after another.

I love the idea of the powders that everyone made in that challenge. It's nice to see them used in other applications. I'm always looking for new ways to use salmon. Thanks for the idea!
