Hello all smart cooking-type people.
My husband has expressed a wild-ass desire for salmon patties/cakes, but he doesn’t want fried-in-the-frying-pan ones. Until Google this morning, I had no idea that NOT frying them was an option.
I’ve never made any type of salmon cake thingie before, but I do firmly remember breadcrumbs being a large part of the process when my mother made them when I was a child.
So here’s the question(s) -
Are the breadcrumbs necessary if the cakes are destined to be grilled on a George Foreman-type grill? (ie - as structural support rather than a coating to be fried)
Does anyone happen to have a nice simple grilled salmon patty recipe that they’re dying to pass on to someone clueless? Or, please rate the one that I found online this morning and offer suggestions as to seasonings and prep advice. (please make them easy ones - I do not usually cook.)
How on earth do we know when the cakes have been on the grill long enough to be cooked through? Or am I monumentally stupid and canned salmon is pre-cooked?
Here is the recipe I found online which seems simple enough and easy to make -
16 oz canned salmon
1/2 cup crushed crackers, panko, or breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp milk
seasonings to taste (suggestions: salt/pepper, lemon and parsley, dill, or curry )
Mash everything all together, form into flattened patties, and grill until brown on the outside.
(that last bit isn’t very helpful… how thick are the patties? how brown? what about the inside?)
Any problems people see with that recipe? Suggestions? Important earth-shattering information about salmon in general?
Many many thanks!!
