CEimB: Salmon Cakes with Ginger Sauce

by Joanne on August 19, 2010

This weeks pick is by Sarah of Sarah’s Kitchen Adventures. Check her site for a terrific recipe recap or go to Food Network for the Ellie recipe.


I’m rushing through this one because we made a quick dinner (I knew Ellie’s recipe would be very easy to prepare), then took off to see the baby:  Dylan. 

The ingredients changes:

  • whole-wheat sandwich bread.  Swapped for Multi-Grain Arnold Sandwich Thins *Comps. of Food Buzz!
    • DSC_5345 

    * Remove crusts from the bread, break into pieces – I used one sandwich thin and since there are no crusts on the thins simply chopped multi grain thin into small pieces.  No time to dirty the food processor. 

    Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce

    Used the non fat Greek yogurt and skipped the mayonnaise.


    These salmon cakes were really good and the ginger sesame sauce was terrific on top.  Then we added a slice of Reduced Fat Swiss cheese and  WOW! YUM-O!


    Cheese makes everything taste a little bit better.

    I’ve pretty much salmoned myself silly lately:  Salmon Tues. night. Salmon for lunch Wednesday. Salmon cakes for dinner.  I can feel all those healthy Omega-3’s coursing through my body.

    Great pick Sarah.  We really liked the taste of the cakes plus the sauce and the ease of making this recipe was a real plus on such a rushed week night.   What a unique texture the water chestnuts added. I’ll have to use them again in tuna burgers.

      Water chestnuts are my FAV!!! I’m convinced they’re good pretty much in anything. 🙂

            You were wise to leave out the mayo. It was not necessary. Another good dinner from Ellie.

                        You are right: cheese does make everything taste better, but I have to say these were pretty good even without it. Love your photos, everything looks delicious. Always fun to see how you adapt everything as you are so creative!

                          Yours do look very, very good. And I absolutely love those Sandwich Thins! Great idea! And you’re right, cheese never hurts.

                            Goodness it looks good! And yes, cheese does make everything better. So does bacon but that is another story
