This is what I decide on... it's a recipe I haven't made it in awhile, but I just love these... Salmon Cakes! While flipping channels years ago I found the wonderful British cooking show Nigella Bites with Nigella Lawson and I've loved her ever since. She makes everything she cooks look so easy. But I have to say, out of all the recipes I have of hers, this is my favorite. Over the years I've changed it up a bit with a couple of little things... like adding bacon and I never have matzo meal in my house when I need it so I started using bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese. Tonight, I'm also making Roasted Asparagus with a Lemon Vinaigrette.... I can't wait for dinner tonight. Yum!
- 2 strips bacon, cooked until crispy, crumbled, bacon fat reserved
- 1 1/2 cups cold mashed potatoes
- 2 (5 ounce) cans salmon
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 pinch cayenne
- 1/2 of lemon zested
- salt and pepper lightly
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup green onions finely chopped (just the greens)
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
- 1/4 cup Olive oil for frying
Well, I need to get my potatoes going their cold when I need them for the Salomon Cakes later... Let me know if you try this... I'd love to know what you thought of it. Have a lovely day!
