Curried Salmon Cakes

by Erika Nicole Kendall

2  large eggs
2  7oz boned, skinned pink salmon, or 1 can (about 15 oz.) red or pink salmon, drained, skin removed
1/2  cup  finely chopped apple
1/4  cup  fine dried bread crumbs
1/4  cup  thinly sliced green onions
2  tablespoons  mayonnaise
1  teaspoon  curry powder
1/2  teaspoon  paprika
1/4  teaspoon  pepper
1  tablespoon  olive oil

Beat eggs with a fork. Add salmon and break up. Stir in apple, bread crumbs, onions, mayonnaise, curry powder, paprika, and pepper. Shape into four cakes (3/4 in. thick); place on a piece of plastic wrap.

Set a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add oil, then salmon cakes. Cook until well browned on the bottom, 5 to 7 minutes. Turn cakes over and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 5 minutes longer.

Serve cakes with aioli.

Opened a can of salmon yesterday so I could have a throwback childhood breakfast – salmon and grits. Now I know what to do with the rest of the can. I hope these freeze well…will be making but not eating these tonight.

I always thought that canned foods weren’t good for you. I thought they had more sodium in them and that made them unhealthy. Am I missing something?

This isn’t true for ALL canned products – there are brands of lots of canned items that are more mindful of the salt.

If anything, I’m more concerned about the actual canning process, but I’m still researching that.

I hate salmon but really want to start eating more of it and that is a really hard thing to do. However I love love love curry. I will give this a try for sure. My goal is to eat fish at least 2-3 times a week for dinner. I’m sure this will help and be a something that can be put together quickly.

I hate curry can I use something else or omit?

I love making Salmon Croquettes! I use some of the ingredients you have listed, but I’m gonna try your alternative to see how I like it with the curry. What sides do you use with your Salmon Cakes?

Love salmon and couldn’t wait to try this recipe. Made it for dinner yesterday BUT, since I don’t eat mayonnaise, I substituted Trader Joe’s spicy hummus. OMG! Was indescribably good. If salmon wasn’t so expensive I’d eat this every day. Fortunately, the recipe yielded enough for two more dinners.

Wonderful salmon cakes!!!!!!!!!! I added just a few ingredients. I used light lemonaise instead of reg. Mayo. I roasted some garlic and added along with some parsley. I also sauteed one small apple and sweet onion before adding to the salmon. It was delicious. Thank you for the recipe.
