Recipe - fish & veggies made easy
I found this recipe as I was looking for ideas to incorporate more fish into our diet (www.everwell.com). They use canned salmon, but it might be interesting to buy fresh salmon and cook it yourself. If anyone tries this (I´m waiting till dh returns) let me know what you think.
Corny Salmon Cakes
Makes 4 Servings
Two 6-ounce cans boneless, skinless pink salmon, drained and finely flaked
1 cup dried breadcrumbs, divided
3/4-cup pre-shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/3-cup light canola mayonnaise
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 large egg, beaten
1-tablespoon canola oil
1. Combine the salmon, 1/2-cup breadcrumbs, cheese, corn, mayonnaise,
ketchup, and egg in a bowl and mix until combined.
2. Shape the mixture into 8 patties and coat with the remaining 1/2-cup
3. Heat half the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties
until golden brown, 5 minutes. Add the remaining oil to the skillet, flip the patties
and cook an additional 4 to 5 minutes.

I´ve included a picture of "crab cakes" - to encourage someone to try it, although these look different because they have corn in them.
