Ever since they were little tykes, my kids have loved salmon cakes. My grandson loves them too, so I always keep a can or two of salmon in the pantry for those times when a quick dinner is necessary. Salmon cakes are easy, quick and are an economical way to add fish to your diet. I like to serve these with corn muffins and a salad or greens.
2 small cans skinless, boneless salmon, or one large can salmon with skin and bones removed
2 slices of bread or rolls-moisten with water then gently squeeze to remove excess water
2 tblsp. mayonnaise
dash of cayenne or hot sauce
pinch of baking powder
finely chopped onion- optional (I like them with onion but my kids prefer them without)
ground pepper to taste
Remove skin and bones from your salmon if necessary. Put all ingredients in a med. bowl. Mix together- hands work best! Make into patties and cook in a small amount of olive oil until golden brown and cooked through. Makes about 5 cakes.
