A tasty flavorful appetizer, or great as a meal that uses lots of wonderful Asian flavors! You can also easily substitute for the ingredients and use leftovers too such as corn instead of onions, leftover salmon (BBQ'd, broiled or baked) instead of fresh or canned - and they still turn out great! A plus crowd pleaser!

Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil and sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the green onion and garlic, and cook until tender. Stir in the miso paste and sake until blended. Bring to a simmer then stir in the cream and lime juice. Return to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, salmon, onion, and cilantro. IN a small bowl, whisk together the egg, soy sauce and water using a fork. Stir about half of this into the salmon mixture, and if it seems dry, stir in a little more until the salmon mixture will stick together in patties.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Form the salmon mixture into 2 inch patties for appetizers, or 4 inch patties for a main dish. Fry patties for about 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Serve with the sauce drizzled over, or separately for dipping.

Great recipe! Nice variation on basic salmon patties. Did some tweaking because it did seem like proportions were out. Here are my changes: Sauce-doubled garlic to 4 cloves -doubled green onion to 2 stems -halved lime juice to 2 T. -added 2tsp. wasabi powder Patties-halved bread crumbs to 3/4 c. -used 1 lb. leftover salmon (fresh not canned, cooked) -finely mince onions -form into patties and refrigerate at least 15 minutes

I enjoyed this recipe (and it was a hit with my 1 yr old, too, and "okay" with my 7 year old and 36 year old). I made quite a few modifications, because I made it impromptu. For the sauce, I did not have miso or sake. I added rice wine vinegar instead of the sake (not quite 1/4 cup) and extra lime. I think that the cakes are good on their own--better without the sauce--or maybe just a little lime/butter sauce would be good. I amended the cakes as well, since the proportion seemed off. I used a whole can of salmon (14 oz), and less bread crumbs--maybe 1 cup max? I had to use 2 eggs to get them moist enough. I added a bit of lime juice as well. My 7 year old complained that there were too many onions, so I'd chop them more finely next time.

I made this recipe tonight to the letter. I tasted the sauce before serving and decided to add about a tsp of fresh grated ginger. It was delicious. Very simple recipe for salmon cakes and the sauce was just flavorful enough to complement without killing the taste of the salmon. I often make salmon cakes and get crazy with the ingredients trying to spice things up but this is a great recipe that lets you enjoy the simple goodness that is a salmon cake. I served this with steamed baby bok choy and the Vietnamese Rice-Noodle Salad recipe from this site (substituting hoisin sauce for the fish sauce and adding a tbsp of rice vinegar). Everything went together very well. Will definitely add this to my permanent recipe book. Thanks for sending it in. Oh, the sauce made a lot more than I needed for the 6 salmon cakes I got out of the recipe so I might try it as a pasta sauce tomorrow.
