From My Kitchen: Salmon Cakes

Everyone I know has been affected one way or another by the Corona Virus. Here in New York things have been calm, hardly any new cases, things are going slowly back to normal. But I mean slow like molasses. And everything is an experiment of sorts, nobody knows what exactly we need to do in order to be safe, so we move slowly and carefully. Restaurants are soon allowed to open their inside dining at restricted numbers. Bars, however, are staying closed for now, which means, I am still out of work. Things are getting tight, money is getting short. What is a girl to do? Cook on a budget! Hopefully you are doing much better than me, but looking at the news, I see this country is suffering. So, at least some of you could use a cost effective and delicious recipe!

What you’ll need:

  • 14 – 16 oz canned salmon, drained
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Heat 2 tbsp of Canola (or oil of your choice) in a large frying pan.

Form 4 – 8 patties out of the salmon mix and place in the hot oil in the pan.

Fry on each side for 5 – 6 minutes over medium heat. Serve with a salad or a side of your preference.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
