Salmon Cakes with a Hoisin Sauce

I grilled some salmon last night and had a bit left-over so; I decided to make salmon cakes that I served with a hoisin sauce ~ delicious! I took my basic crab cake recipe and tweaked it.

Ingredients

½ pound of cooked/grilled salmon

1/4 a yellow onion, coarsely chopped

½ loaf of a large Ciabatta or Sourdough Baguette, just use the insides of the bread not the crust.

1/4 a bunch of cilantro, coarsely chopped

1 beaten egg

1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced

The juice of 1 lemon and zest

About 2 cups of Panko breadcrumbs

Fresh cracked pepper, a generous amount

Directions

1. In a large bowl combine salmon, yellow onion, bread, cilantro, egg, Jalapeno, lemon and zest, and fresh cracked pepper. Set aside.

2. Place Panko breadcrumbs in a large pasta bowl. Set aside.

3. Make sauce. See below.

4. Take about 3 tablespoons of salmon mixture and make into a cake. Then, GENTLY set into Panko breadcrumbs and cover the entire cake. Have a large platter ready to set the salmon cakes on after you form them.

5. Place paper towels on a flat surface for when the salmon cakes come out.

6. Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large sauté pan on med-hi heat (adjusting if to hot).

7. Place your salmon cakes in hot pan (do not over-crowd), these cook very fast so, keep a close eye on them. Brown both sides. Place on prepared paper towels. These can be served immediately or at room temperature. Dollop with hoisin sauce.

Sauce

¼ cup hoisin sauce

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1 ½ teaspoons chili garlic sauce

1 teaspoon sesame oil

Mix all ingredients together.
