Recipe - Salmon Cakes with Yogurt Aioli
A complete meal featuring heart-healthy Salmon Cakes. Serve with baked sweet potato wedges and apple coleslaw
The secret to holding the cakes together is to refrigerate the salmon mixture before cooking, so the bread crumbs absorb moisture from the other ingredients.
- 1 pound cooked salmon or 1 4¾-ounce can salmon
- 2 green onions, finely chopped, including green parts
- 2 egg whites
- ½ cup canned corn, drained
- ½ red pepper, finely diced
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ¼ cup plus
- 1 tablespoon whole wheat bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- Flake salmon and mix with next six ingredients. Add ¼ cup of the bread crumbs and mix well. Refrigerate mixture for at least 15 minutes.
- Form into 4 cakes. Dust each side with remaining bread crumbs.
- Put oil in pan and bring to medium heat. Add the cakes and cook until outside turns brown, approximately 3 minutes. Turn over and fry another 2 minutes until bottom is brown.
