When your partner or husband mostly eats seafood, you have to learn to create a lot of different recipes so that you don’t eat the same thing every day. This salmon cake recipe is the perfect combination to satisfy his or her palate. This recipe is not only easy, but it is also quick and will help you create a scrumptious weeknight dinner that even the kids will enjoy. This is how you make sure you win their hearts.
My girlfriend came over a few nights ago. As I was getting ready to make dinner, I realized that I would not have enough time to spend with her. I did not want to be a slave in my kitchen that night. Sipping on wine was a better option.
I figured that salmon cakes would be a great idea to make with a mixed green salad. Easy, right? That’s what my girlfriend thought as well. So we started playing with ingredients and creating new flavors. It was certainly a cooking weeknight adventure.
My honey is a health nut and I often tell him that he will live to be 100 years old. LOL… This recipe has all the health benefits but will satisfy his craving for something yummy. How can I do wrong with this wholesome dinner?
A few notes about Salmon
Salmon has a lot of health benefits. When you buy salmon, make sure you get wild caught. It is often considered one of the healthiest fish available. Wild salmon eats natural food found in the ocean, they have less calorie, less fat, more iron, and zinc, while farmed raised salmon are fed a processed high-fat feed so that they can produce larger fish.
This excerpt was taken from Dr. Axe.com. Here are a few health benefits of Salmon:
- High in Vitamin D
- Improves Bone Health
- Boosts Brain Function
- May Prevent ADHD in Children
- Promotes Heart Health
- Enhances Eyesight
- Optimizes Skin Health
- May Fight Cancer Development
These cakes can be your appetizers or your entrée. They are also great as leftovers.
To start, salmon cakes are best prepared with fresh salmon. If you don’t have fresh salmon, canned salmon is good also. Seasoning, seasoning, seasoning! The right seasoning blend is definitely needed with seafood. I used Noubess Fish and Seafood Seasoning. It contains no salt and I love it.
I like seasoning without sodium because my honey does not eat a lot of salt. I am able to control what I put in his meals. This also makes it easier to follow a proper healthy diet.
I used Noubess Hot and Spicy Pineapple Sauce for that extra kick. I like this particular sauce for seafood because of the lemony flavor that is intensified by the pineapple fruit. The onion and red pepper add a nice crunchy taste to the patties or cakes. They also make more texture to the mixture.
The oil and butter mixture add a nice crusty finish and more flavor also. Serve with salad, this can be a full meal.
