Salmon Cakes are a great alternative to crab cakes. Full of Omega-3s and just as tasty.

Don’t get me wrong, I love crab cakes (like these). But just sometimes you want something different.
If you are trying to boost your intake of omega-3s, try this simple favorite. It is a great way to use convenient canned or even leftover salmon.
Mediterranean Salmon Cakes
Yields 4 sevings
1 can of wild caught salmon, drained
1 large egg, beaten
1/3 cup (1/2-ounce) chopped fresh chives
1/2 cup of Gluten Free Bread crumbs (homemade or store-bought)
1/2 cup frozen petite peas, thawed
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise, plus more, as needed
1 Tablespoon Kalamata olives, chopped
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon lemon zest
3 Tablespoons Rice bran oil
Using a fork, flake the salmon into a medium bowl. Add the egg, chives, 1/2 of bread crumbs, the peas, mustard, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix gently until just combined.
Form the mixture into four patties about 2 1/2-inch diameter and 3/4 inches thick. (If the mixture is too dry to form into patties, add extra mayo, 1 tablespoon at a time,) Carefully coat the patties in the remaining crushed bread crumbs and refrigerate for 1 hour.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the patties and cook until golden and crispy, about 4-7 minutes each side.
Cook’s Note: I’ve also made them with corn and capers instead of the peas and Kalamata olives. Also very tasty.
