Salmon Cakes

1 Lb. salmon, cooked shredded & bones removed

¼ C Mayonnaise

½ C red onion, chopped

1 Tbsp. sour cream

1 Tbsp. garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. parsley, chopped

1 Tbsp. thyme, chopped

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 Tsp. celery salt

½ Tsp. dry mustard

¼ C bread crumbs

1 egg, beaten

1 Tsp. salt

1 Tsp. pepper


1 egg beaten

1 C breadcrumbs


Ginger Aioli

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 Tbsp. ginger, peeled and chopped

1 Egg yolk

3 garlic cloves, smashed

½ C peanut oil

½ C vegetable oil

1 Tbsp. chili garlic sauce

1 Tbsp. Srirachi

2 Tsp. rive wine vinegar

1 Tsp. sesame oil

½ Tsp. salt


Sesame Vegetable Slaw

1 ½ C green cabbage, thinly sliced

1 C carrots cut into matchsticks

½ C red cabbage, thinly sliced

½ Zucchini, cut into matchsticks

½ cucumber, cut into matchsticks

½ red bell pepper, cut into matchsticks

2 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped

1 Tbsp. red onion, minced

3 Tbsp. sugar

3 Tbsp. ginger aioli

3 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar

1 Tbsp. cider vinegar

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

salt & pepper

2 Tbsp. sesame seeds

½ C chives, cut into ½ in. lengths


In a large bowl mix all salmon cake ingredients but last two.  Shape salmon mixture into cakes & dip in the beaten egg then breadcrumbs.  For Aioli place first four ingredients into a food processor and puree.  Slowly pour in oils while processor is running & then add remaining ingredients.  For slaw mix together all ingredients thru the red onion together in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl mix sugar thru salt & pepper.  Whisk together until sugar is dissolved.  Dress slaw with dressing & toss in sesame seeds and chives before severing.  To cook salmon cakes, heat up 3 tbsp. peanut oil in a large sauté pan over med-high heat.  Fry cakes until golden brown, turning once brown.  Serve cakes, with the slaw and ginger aioli.


I usually add red bell pepper to the salmon cakes, but I did not have any so I increased the onions.  You can cut back on the onions and add red peppers, celery; whatever veggies you think would taste good.
