Recipe Ingredients for Salmon Cakes with Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce

1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
6 slices whole-wheat bread
30 ounce salmon
2 eggs, lightly beaten
5 scallions
4 oz water chestnuts
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 teaspoons olive oil, divided

Recipe Directions for Salmon Cakes with Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce

  1. Remove crusts from the bread, break into pieces, and process in a food processor until you get a fine bread crumb. In a large bowl, flake apart the salmon with a fork. Add the egg and mix well. Finely chop 4 of the scallions and add to the bowl. Add the water chestnuts, cilantro, pepper, and the bread crumbs and mix well. Shape the mixture into 12 patties.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 6 patties and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Transfer the cooked patties to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil to the pan, and cook the rest of the salmon cakes, 5 minutes on each side.

  3. Chop the remaining 1 scallion. Serve salmon cakes with the sauce and garnish with scallion.
