Yesterday I told you I was attempting a new recipe. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my teaser since I deemed this recipe a success! Now I am sharing it with you!

I made salmon cakes! They were moist and they are great to eat alone, as a sandwich and on a salad.

Salmon Cakes - makes 4 patties

1 can of chunked salmon (in water)

1/4 cup dry quinoa

~ 1 teaspoon dill

~ 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard mayo

1 egg

1. Put quinoa in about a 1/2 cup of water, let it come to a boil and let sit on low heat for 10 minutes.
2. Drain the salmon and combine in a food processor along with the dill and mustard mayo. (Side can combine your own mustard and mayo to taste)
3. Once quinoa is done allow it to cool then combine salmon mixture and quinoa in a separate bowl.
4. Form the mixture into cakes.
5. Mix up the egg in a separate dish and dip the cakes into the egg.
6. Put the cakes onto a hot skillet and cook about 2 minutes per side.

I originally didn't dip the first two cakes into egg, but for the last two I did which made then stick together a lot better.

Yesterday I ate mine with some avocado and fruit.
Today I had it on an English muffin with a little bit of Tartar sauce and a side of sautéed veggies.
Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!!
