Salmon Cakes

I’m a huge fan of salmon. Any way you prepare this fish I love salmon.  My Salmon Cakes With A Chive Dill Sauce is Steve and my favorite.

Salmon pairs perfectly with asparagus so that was an obvious choice to go along with my Salmon Cakes. There’s a great recipe for Roasted Asparagus With Lemon Pepper on my site. The link will be posted below. How about Salmon Cake Sliders? Topped with peppery arugula and slices of avocado. These sliders are super delicious.

Salmon Cakes

 

Prep Time 30 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 45 minutes
Yields: 10 cakes
Equipment: rimmed baking sheet pan, non-stick 12-inch sautè pan, large mixing bowl, 2.25-ounce (the large scoop) cookie dough scoop

Ingredients:
1/2 pound fresh wild salmon
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, reserve 2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 small red onion small diced
1 1/2 cups small-diced celery (about 4 stalks)
1/2 cup of small diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup small diced yellow bell pepper
1/4 cup minced flat-leaf Italian parsley
1 tablespoon drained capers
1 tablespoon of freshly chopped dill
1 tablespoon of freshly chopped chives
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup of good mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 large eggs lightly beaten
Garnish with fresh chives

Ingredients For Aioli:
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
juice 1/2 lemon
1 clove grated garlic
1 tablespoon freshly chopped dill
1 teaspoon of freshly chopped chives
pinch of Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Directions For Aioli:
In a bowl add the mayo and Dijon mustard. Add the lemon juice, grated garlic, salt, pepper, fresh chopped dill, and fresh chopped chives. Mix all the ingredients together, cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to use.

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350-degrees F.
Place the salmon on a sheet pan, skin side down. Drizzle a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or just until cooked. When the salmon is done, remove and cover with foil and let rest for another 15 minutes. After the salmon has rested, transfer to the refrigerator until cold. This will allow the salmon to flake and come right away from the skin. You want to flake the salmon in large chunks, you really want to see the salmon throughout the cakes.

In a large sautèpan, on medium-low heat, using 2 tablespoons each of butter and olive oil, add all the veggies, parsley, the seasoning, capers, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon of Kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper. Stirring frequently, sautè for 15 to 20 minutes until soft. Remove from the heat, cool completely.

Flake the chilled salmon into a large bowl. Add the beaten eggs, bread crumbs, mayo, Dijon mustard, the fresh dill, and chopped chives. Next, add the vegetable mixture and mix well.  Cover and chill in the frig for 30 minutes. Using a 2.25-ounce cookie dough scoop, shape into 10 salmon cakes.

Preheat oven to 250-degrees F.

Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of oil, in a large sautèpan, over medium heat. In batches, add in the salmon cakes and fry 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Line a plate with a paper towel setting the salmon cakes on the plate to drain. Next, transfer the salmon cakes onto a baking sheet pan to keep warm the oven.

Serve the Salmon Cakes With A Chive Dill Aioli Sauce hot. A ramekin filled with Chive Dill Aioli Sauce, and a side of Lemon Pepper Roasted Asparagus.

Serve the Salmon Cake Sliders on buttered toasted buns with arugula and a few avocado slices.
