Baked Confetti Salmon Cake

So I was curled up in our couch  in agony  due to  cramps and thinking what to cook for dinner. Suddenly a sound "ding" came into my brain and had this  idea to make a salmon cake. I bought salmon the other day from the store thinking of grilling it but since I have a dysmenorrhea, I thought of making my job a little easier.

So here's what I came up with. Pardon if my recipe are not  that precise, I cook whatever I feel would make a good tasting dish and whatever  ingredients I have in the fridge and in my garden. So here it goes:

Ingredients: You can ad whatever ingredients you want, this is just what I use with mine.

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2 frozen lemon grass (optional)
  • 1/2 cup  miracle whip (you can use mayo)
  • 1 medium size onion (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp chopped Italian parsley (fresh from the pot)
  • scallion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp, chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 small carrots, shredded
  • 1 tbsp, tartar sauce
  • 1/2 cup  Italian bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. shredded ginger

  • Boil one cup of water, put the lemon, and and salt.  Add the salmon when the water is boiling.  Or you can just  cook the salmon in water and salt. I just ad lemon grass because I love the earthiness aroma of it and it somehow eliminates the fishy smell of the salmon.
  • While the salmon is cooking,  mix all the ingredients up in a bowl.
  • When the salmon is cooked, remove the skin and shred it into desired  chunks/pieces.
  • Add it to the mixture.
You can fry  them or bake them. I pan-fried some for the kids and baked the rest in 350 degrees heat for 40 minutes.   Make sure to spray the foil or baking sheet with  oil spray so the salmon cake won't stick.

I would say, I love the  baked ones more, it got crispier and it does not have oil in it, a lot healthier. Hubby and I ate ours with my kohlrabi achara, rice, and some blanched beans while the kids ate theirs with vegetable and fruit salsa (cucumbers, tomatoes, and  strawberries with  soy sauce).
We had a pretty good diner tonight.  Another success menu in my kitchen. There are different kinds of recipe for confetti  salmon cake but this is my take based on the ingredients I have gathered in my  fridge.
