Cooking Thursday

I'm linking up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom, for her Cooking Thursday party.  Check it out for some more great recipes!

Salmon cakes are one of my family's favorite suppers.  Which is a wonder because I never make them the same way twice.  It's like meatloaf, I just have a recipe in my head (sort of) and I go from there.  But, Monday night I found this one in my recipe box and decided to follow it exactly.  These are the best salmon cakes ever!  I served them with baked potatoes, Le Sueur canned peas and applesauce.

Salmon Cakes  

2 - 6 oz. cans skinless, boneless salmon
1 1/2 cups Panko bread crumbs
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp dried basil
5 large eggs, beaten
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt

Drain salmon and combine with 1 cup bread crumbs, 2 eggs and seasoning in a large bowl.  Mix well.  Form into patties and set aside.  In three small bowls, prepare the following ingredients:  3 beaten eggs in one bowl, flour in another, and the remaining bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in the third.  Dip each patty into the beaten eggs, then in the flour, and lastly in the bread crumb and Parmesan mixture.  Saute in a skillet until batter is golden brown, then finish heating in the oven set at 350 degrees F for 7 miinutes.

Makes 6 servings.

I've never seen a recipe for salmon burgers with the breaded coating. I'm definitely going to give these a try. Salmon burgers was on my menu list for the coming weeks.

I will be using this for sure. I never make mine the same way twice either. In fact, mine consist solely of salmon, crackers, egg, onion, and that is all. But it takes 3 cans of salmon to satisfy our craving. This will make things go farther. Yipee! Thanks.

This sounds so good. I am not much of a cook, so I am lucky that my husband is. Happy Eating!
