Recipe Ingredients for Salmon Cakes

6 slices whole wheat bread
30 ounce salmon, drained, skin and bones removed
2 eggs, lightly beaten
5 scallions
1/2 cup water chestnuts
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 teaspoons olive oil, divided

Recipe Directions for Salmon Cakes

  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.
