Hey Good Lookin'! What's Cookin'? - Salmon Cakes

At the library one day, I stumbled across a series of books by Joann Fluke. They all have food in the title and they are filled with murder, mystery and some pretty fun recipes. The main character runs a cookie shop in a small town in Minnesota. Most of the recipes are for cookies, but every once in a while, she’ll throw in a simple lunch dish or casserole. I place hre books in the category of books I call “Candy for the Brain” – not a lot of nutritional value, but it sure is fun. This recipe comes from Carrot Cake Murder.

This recipe we have made several times on those nights where we just don’t know what to cook. It’s great because you can easily have all the ingredients on hand since the salmon is canned.

Here's a recipe I made a slight change to for Salmon Cakes From Carrot Cake Murder by Joann Fluke

2 Cans salmon (10 oz) - I prefer Bumblebee Prime Fillet Atlantic Salmon

3 slices bread with crusts cut off

2 beaten eggs

1 tsp Worcestshire Sauce (or A1 Steak Sauce)

½ tsp dry mustard

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp onion powder

2 Tbsp butter (for frying) and 2 TBSP Olive Oil

1. Tear bread into small pieces and put into bowl with salmon

2. Add egg

3. Mix in W. sauce, mustard, salt, onion powder

4. Divide into four

5. Flatten into patties

6. Fry ‘em up

7. Serve with cream of celery soup sauce or quick tartar sauce

Makes 4 patties.
