Salmon Patties for the Win!

My little brother just asked me for this recipe for Salmon Cakes (or as we called them growing up, Salmon Patties).  This is a Southern delicacy sorta like cowboy caviar…which, by the way, pairs nicely with these tasty salmon morsels.  Anyways, instead of texting this to him, I thought it would be best to share out on my blog so everyone can try it, and it’s out there in perpetuity as my legacy.  Oh, did I say it’s pretty inexpensive to make and AS good as crab cakes!?!  Pretty important in Joe Biden “inflation out the ass” land!

I knew I only had one shot to plate this and I failed.  I feel like usually my presentation is much better.  But the drizzles of remoulade all bled together by the time I found my phone. 

Okay, so first, get your ass to the market.  And pick up the following:

1 14oz can of pink tuna 

1 onion (you mince up 1/2 for this recipe)

2 eggs

3/4 cups of bread crumbs but I use these tasty Kellogg’s club crackers and I really think it’s so much better   

1 tsp lemon juice 

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground pepper

Drain your salmon (but keep the juice for later) and finger check for any bones as you drop in a bowl.   Add on the onions and mix!  Now add in your eggs and crackers and add back in the juice from the can and lemon juice.  Add salt and pepper.  Now shape your cakes while your olive oil heats on the stove.   Next drop them in for 5 minutes on each side and please watch for spitting oil that might pop out!  In other words, don’t stand too close!

Ohhhh I’m not even done!  You’ll wanna dip these in a remoulade sauce.  This one is my fave:

1/2 cup of Mayo 

2 teaspoons of hot horseradish 

1 tablespoon of pickle juice  

2 teaspoons of lemon juice 

2.5 teaspoons of paprika 

1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder 

1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning   Mmmmm

Mix with a whisk!  Whalllaaaaa!

I hope you enjoy this southern treat!  My grandmama in South Carolina used to make these but we would dip them in ketchup or tartar sauce.  And I just think this remoulade jazzes it up so much better! 

Cowboy caviar is basically a bean salad with some BAM flavor It’s usually made with black eyed peas.  But in my pic, I made it with a three bean salad, some Serrano peppers, cilantro, opinions, and tomatoes.  I threw in a splash or two of Greek dressing!

Happy cooking!
