Salmon Cakes with Dilly Tartar Sauce
2 cups of cooked, flaked fish (such as salmon, trout, pickerel)
1 egg, beaten well (depending on how moist the fish is, you can add an extra egg if you need extra binding)
¼ cup panko bread crumbs, plus extra for coating
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp finely chopped white onion, shallot or green onion
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
1 tbsp SMAK DAB Mustard (any flavour will do!)
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Olive oil, for cooking
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients above and fold together lightly. Once mixed, portion about 6 large patties (or 8 smaller ones) into disks, almost like a hockey puck.
On a plate, sprinkle some panko bread crumbs and one at a time, add the disks and lightly pat with the bread crumbs so they’re lightly coated.
Preheat a frying pan on medium high heat and add about 3 tbsp of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the cakes and gently fry one side at a time until a deep golden brown. (About 3-4 minutes) Flip and repeat on the other side.
Serve warm with Dilly Tartar Sauce.
