I really love salmon, it’s definitely one of my favourite things to eat, so it’s pretty surprising that I’ve never tried a salmon cake. I’ve always just been a fan of the classic, baked salmon. The one that melts in your mouth, and is flavored with whatever your mind can imagine. However, I get bored easily, so I’m always trying to find new ways to eat my favourite things.
I was watching The Food Network one morning, and on the show I was watching they were making salmon cakes, they looked so easy, affordable and tasty. Something that could be flavored however you wanted, maybe I would make some spicy salmon cakes packed with hot sauce and hot peppers and chili powder, or I would make savory salmon cakes with bacon and cheese, or maybe I would go with these salmon cakes, a more basic and perfect way to get into salmon cakes. I’ve created a flavor combination that just works, the capers and Dijon add a nice, salty and tangy addition to the sweet and healthy sweet potato, the hot sauce adds a little bit of a kick and the panko creates a nice crunchy crust without frying. These are healthy, easy and delicious, perfect for a weeknight meal.
I hope you enjoy these salmon cakes, they are one of my favourite things right now, I served mine with lots of hot sauce and some Spicy Broccoli.
