Crab cakes are a popular dish, but not always practical or affordable. This quick and easy recipe uses canned salmon and other ingredients that can be kept on hand for preparation on busy days.
1 7.5-ounce can salmon, skin removed
¼ cup plain, dry bread crumbs
½ cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, or 1 teaspoon dried
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons horseradish
Vegetable oil cooking spray
- Mix all the ingredients except the cooking spray in a medium-size bowl.
- Form into 4 equal-size patties.
- Coat a medium nonstick pan with the cooking spray; heat over medium heat.
- Cook the salmon cakes on both sides until golden brown.
Chili sauce may be used instead of horseradish. This is an easy and inexpensive way to reel in omega-3s, fish fat with anti-inflammatory properties that also may help fight heart disease.
