Salmon Cakes with Dill and Parsley, topped with Garlic Aioli
Here is a recipe not on the menu this week, but it is one I like to make. It's quick and easy.
For the salmon
1 lb salmon, baked and flaked
1 1/2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used water crackers)
3 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 tsp fresh dill and parsley finely chopped
Salt & pepper
1 Tbsp oil for frying
For the Aioli
2 Tbsp mayonnaise (I often use low-fat Greek Yogurt rather than the Mayo)
1/8 cup lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
Epicure Garlic Aioli
Salt & pepper to taste
For the Salmon Cakes
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine.
Scoop out about 1/4 cup of mixture and shape into a small patty.
Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Heat oil in large pan.
When hot, add salmon cakes, cooking for about 3-4 minutes per side.
For the Aioli
Whisk together all ingredients until smooth.
The flu has made a visit to my home this week, not a welcome visitor I must say. Just like good old Uncle Martin, who comes for a 2 day visit, and is still here a month later, we are getting a little grumpy about this visitation!!!
As a result I have not been able to update my recipe links or write further articles for my blog, so please bear with me. I should be feeling better in the next couple of days. I thought I'd leave you with a little laugh and hope Mr. Flu leaves you alone, he is a nasty one. Have a great day and keep smiling.
