RECIPE: Crispy Salmon Cakes w/ Lemon Caper Mayonnaise

I'm addicted to these salmon cakes and the mayonnaise is great with shrimp and on sandwiches too. I halve the recipe and make small salmon cakes. I buy farm raised salmon so it won't have that strong fishy flavor. It's great alongside a salad of arugula w/ a lemon vinaigrette dressing.

Crispy Salmon Cakes w/ Lemon Caper Mayonnaise

Salmon Cakes:

1 T vegetable oil, divided
cup finely chopped onions
cup finely chopped celery
1 T minced green bell pepper
cup crushed fatfree saltines (20), divided
1 T Dijon mustard
tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 (7-1/2 oz) cans salmon, drained or 16 oz fresh salmon, poached
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 T mayonnaise
tsp fresh lemon juice
tsp Worcestershire sauce
2-3 dashes Tabasco
(if using fresh salmon, add a bit of salt to this mixture)

Heat 1 tsp oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium heat; add onion, celery and bell pepper and saute 4 minutes or until tender.

Combine onion mixture with cup cracker crumbs, mustard, tsp black pepper, salmon, egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco in medium bowl; divide into 4 equal portions and shape into " thick patties.

Coat each patty with 1 T cracker crumbs; cover and chill for 20 minutes.

Heat 2 tsps oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add patties and cook 5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve salmon cakes with lemon caper mayonnaise.

This recipe gets changed with each posting I think. I added the minced green bell pepper and I like to poach fresh salmon in a little water and lemon juice, w/ dill sprinkled on the fish. enjoy! Ann

We enjoy salmon cakes & I make mine very similarly, but the Lemon Caper Mayonnaise sounds delicious. Thanks for posting....
