I created this recipe for one of my FB lives as I had salmon in the freezer, and I wanted to make something a bit different other than just salmon.
As I was sitting in front of my computer, brainstorming on how to make a nice solid salmon cake without any kind of flour, I decided to use my leftover quinoa from the night before and of course eggs to bind everything together.
These salmon cakes came out really delicious and even tastes good the next day as a leftover. I made myself an open-faced salmon cake sandwich with mayo, lettuce, and apple on toasted gluten-free toast. It was to die for.
I highly encourage you to try this out I guarantee you will love it too.
20 oz. cooked sockeye salmon or 4-6oz. cans of Atlantic salmon
1 small onion
3-4 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
2 tablespoons Fresh parsley or 1 handful of chopped baby spinach
1 cup cooked quinoa
Salt, pepper, dash of cayenne
In a bowl, crumble the salmon. How much is up to you. I like my salmon a bit chunky. Add the rest of ingredients other than olive oil and mix very well (I like to use my hands for that).
Form the cakes and set aside.
Heat olive oil in a pan, place cakes carefully in the pan with hot oil, turn the heat down to medium and let cook until solid on the bottom, until ready to turn.
Once turning the cakes be careful to use a spatula and your hand to keep them more secure while flipping them over. Cook on the other side until completely done.
Vegetables of your choice or you can use what I used:
4-5 florets of cauliflower
1 large or 3 small carrots
Lettuce of your choice
Baby spinach or arugula
1 Green, yellow or orange pepper
Chop all ingredients to a nice bite-size or smaller size other than the spinach or arugula, and
¼ to ½ cup olive oil or avocado oil
Lemon juice from half a lemon
¼ teaspoon dried dill
A dash of maple syrup only if needed
Blend all ingredients very well together using a whisk. Pour over salad mix well and enjoy:)
Salad is such a nutrient-rich side dish, that is full of many amazing vitamins, anti-inflammatory properties, and antioxidants.
I hope you will enjoy this super simple quick and highly nutritious dinner.
