Dilled Salmon Cakes

There are so many wonderful things about salmon that it’s hard to know where to start. It’s a fish which, even people who don’t like fish can enjoy. It’s firm enough to grill, can be cooked in many different ways, and does not dry out as easily as many other fish.. Wild salmon can be eaten without fear of excess contaminants or mercury, and it has a very high nutrient profile, including the highly-prized omega-3 fatty acids. What’s not to like? Salmon is a highly nutritious food. Of course, it is high in protein, and the “good fats." But did you know that a 4 oz serving of wild salmon provides a full day’s requirement of vitamin D? It is one of the few foods that can make that claim. That same piece of fish contains over half of the necessary B12, niacin, and selenium, and is an excellent source of B6 and magnesium. We’ve all heard a lot about the heart-healthy benefits of salmon lately. Countless books by well-known doctors tell us that eating salmon two or three times a week will keep our hearts, brains and joints sound, and even erase our wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Though with all good nutritional value...I don't bring Salmon often, as my daughter does not like them. She likes other fishes except Salmon. So, thought of making something light and which tempts her to eat...We gave her saying it was Vada(she loves them), and she liked it :-). It worked this time..will see the next time.
Ingredients:
Dilled Salmon Cakes Pink Salmon (boneless) – 1 Lb Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked) – ¾ cup Far free milk – ¼ cup Egg whites – 2 (lightly beaten) Onion (finely chopped) – ¼ cup Fresh dill (chopped) - ½ cup Cumin powder – ¼ tsp Coriander powder – ½ tsp Chili powder – 1 tsp (according to your spice) Salt Method:
  • With a fork just scrape the salmon to pieces or you can finely grind in a mixer.
  • Combine all the above ingredients together and allow it to sit for 5 min.
  • Shape into patties about 1 inch thick.
  • Lightly spray a non stick skillet with cooking spray.
  • Cook Salmon cakes over medium heat for 3- 4 min on each side or until golden brown and heated through.

PS: You can use canned salmon instead of fresh one. Use one 14 oz can.

I have just scraped the fish with fork, got uneven small pieces. You can also grind it in a mixer.

I have added the spices according to my taste..You can add your own spices.

You can add chili paste or chili pieces instead of chili powder.

You can replace dill weed instead of fresh dill.. You can also make patties and bake it in oven.
