Salmon Cakes with Lemon Yogurt Sauce

Monday, March 14, 2011

Salmon:

- 1 lb skinless salmon fillet
- olive oil, for drizzling
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Patties:

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup (1/2-ounce) chopped fresh chives
  • Panko crumbs
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, plus more, as needed
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

My salmon fillet was actually 2 lbs, and I brushed it with olive oil on both sides, sprinkled it with salt and pepper


then baked it for about 20-25 minutes at 350F


We ate half of it when taken out of the oven, and I used the other half to make the patties.
Using a fork, I flaked the salmon into 1/2-inch pieces and put into a medium bowl.  I add the egg, chives, 1/2 of the Panko crumbs, the corn, mustard, mayonnaise, capers, lemon juice, and lemon zest.


I mixed gently until just combined (I had to move everything into a larger bowl, because there wasn't enough room to mix it).




I then formed the mixture into 2 1/2-inch diameter patties, about 3/4 inches thick. (If the mixture is too dry to form into patties, add extra mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon at a time).  I carefully coated the patties in the remaining Panko crumbs and refrigerated for 1 hour. 



In a large nonstick skillet, I heated the oil and butter over medium heat.  I added the patties and cooked until golden and crispy, about 7 to 8 minutes each side, after which I drained them on paper towels.


And here is one cake:

Now, for the sauce: in a small bowl, I mixed together the yogurt (I did not include capers), lemon juice, and lemon zest. I seasoned with salt and pepper, to taste.
Then I arranged some of the salmon cakes on a platter and served alongside the sauce.


Enjoy!
