Salmon is a fantastic fish that graces the waters of Alaska. Last summer Andy and I had the opportunity to go down to the village Storman grew up in, and while we were there the Reds (sockeye) were running. We helped can some of the fish and they gave us some to take home.
Now, whats a girl who grew up the Midwest to do with all the fish?
Well...use some of it for fantastic salmon dip....and then let it sit in her pantry.
Great use of good fish right?
Well the other day I saw a recipe for salmon cakes....light bulb!
That's right, we've made salmon cakes twice in the last week and I think it is one of our favorite ways to eat canned salmon!
What did I put in them?
two jars of canned salmon
some minced onion
some minced garlic
Tbsp lemon or lime juice
Tbsp lite soy sauce
2 Tbsp grainy mustard
1 cup of Italian bread crumbs
Mix, and make into patties. Fry for 2-3 minutes a side.
Pair with homemade tarter sauce:
Mayo with chopped up dill pickles
Let it sit while you make your patties...it tastes better after you let it sit.
Serve with a salad...super healthy and tasty!
