Tasty, no-fuss muffin tin cakes. The lentils add some fiber but make sure to use red lentils as they turn to mush much easier than green/brown lentils. Each bite has a bit of kick from the horseradish which is really wonderful.

Recipe Ingredients for Salmon Lentil Cakes

2/3 cup red lentils
3 green onions, sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
6 oz. canned sockeye salmon
1 tbsp horseradish
2 large eggs
2 tbsp fresh dill
1/2 cup Panko
1 Salt and pepper, to taste

Recipe Directions for Salmon Lentil Cakes

  1. In a saucepan, bring lentils and 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until lentils have become very tender and water has mostly been absorbed, about 10 minutes. As lentils cook, heat 2 teaspoons oil in a skillet and cook onion for 2 minutes. Stir in garlic and cumin seeds and cook 1 minute more.

  2. Preheat oven to 375F. Mash lentils with a fork or potato masher and combine with onion mixture, salmon, horseradish, eggs, dill, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Divide mixture among 10 medium sized muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes, or until set and slightly golden on top. Let cool before unmolding.

  3. 1 serving = 2 cakes
