baked salmon cake
These baked salmon cakes are super easy to make and perfect for gatherings or holiday appetizers. It’s also great for using up leftover grilled salmon. It can also be eaten with salad, roasted vegetables, or rice, or served for lunch. Fish cakes are more affordable and rich in omega-3s than crab cakes. Other fish cake recipes that I love are these Baked Loaf Crab Cakes, Waffle Crab Cakes, and Baked Corn and Crab Cakes with Red Chili Chipotle Lime Sauce.
If you’re looking for healthy appetizer ideas this holiday season, look no further. We’ve got more salmon recipes here than any other fish! Wild salmon is packed with heart-healthy omega-3s. Rich in content, these salmon cakes are so easy to make. You can pre-assemble them and pop them in the oven when your guests arrive. Place them on the table and watch them disappear!
When buying fish, choose wild rather than farmed. Arrange the Queen’s original recipe, Inaen I used only light ingredients and baked rather than fried and it turned out great. I love a savory dipping sauce and knew the avocado cilantro dressing would be the perfect fresh compliment.The tartar sauce is also great.
If you don’t want to cook the salmon, you can use well-drained packaged or canned salmon if you have it on hand, but it’s worth the extra few minutes to cook it yourself.
