“I tried this because I had some sweet potatoes that needed to be used and it turned out great! Very yummy! Serve with some freshly squeezed lemon juice on top, and voila!”

Original recipe yields 8 salmon cakes

Directions

  1. Place sweet potato and potato into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl to cool.

  3. Heat olive oil in the skillet over medium heat; cook and stir celery, carrot, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper in the hot oil until celery and carrot are softened, about 5 minutes. Add shallots, parsley, cilantro, and garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Pour wheat germ, egg, and reserved milk over sweet potato and potato; mash until evenly combined.
  5. Flake salmon with a fork; mix flaked salmon and vegetable mixture into the mashed potato mixture using your hands.
  6. Heat vegetable oil large saucepan or skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Pour bread crumbs into a large bowl.
  8. Form salmon mixture into patties using your hands; press each patty into bread crumbs, coating both sides.
  9. Fry patties, working in batches, in the hot oil until crisp and golden, about 3 minutes per side.

My husband is an avid fisherman. Lots of Salmon in the freezer from Pulaski to use up so this sounded great! We liked all the veggies in there and cooking in milk was a great way to prepare this and get that strong fishy taste out of the fish. I was not able to find wheat germ in my local grocery store but I did find wheat bran. Other than that I did it just as explained. We both liked it but it was too "runny" I would not add all of the milk next time I would add some than mash it up and see if I needed more. Other that that this was great! I also tried a couple patties with Chipotle Panko crumbs on the outside and they were our favorites. Thanks for sharing we will be trying this again with some modifications. Maybe some of that shredded zucchini that is in the freezer instead of white potatoes and crushed flax instead of wheat bran.
