Thai Peanut Salmon Cakes

Fish is a very versatile protein.  This salmon cake recipe alludes to the Thai cuisine with the garlic-ginger-soy sauce-peanut combo.  Thai cuisine is really flavorful and that is why we latched on the idea of creating a Thai inspired salmon cake.  Of course Thai food utilized a lot of seafood so our product do well for this region.  We hope you like this one as much as we do.  Of course we utilize sriracha sauce and you can control the amount of spiciness with this ingredient.  If you want something with more kick, just add a little bit more.  If you have a sensitive palate for the spicy, feel free to reduce the amount.

 

 

 

This is what you need for this one:

3 TBS peanut butter
2 tsp Sriracha
2 TBS honey
3 TBS soy sauce
2 TBS fresh ginger minced
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tsp fresh lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro minced
2 stalks green onion (green portion especially)
1 lb salmon burger, thawed and excess water drained

 

Mix together the first six ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat until well blended and it is about to boil.  Pull off the heat and let cool.  There will be left over with this sauce and that is intentional to have for dipping sauce or mixint with mayo if you put these cakes on a bun and make a sandwich.

 

Add the mayo, bread crumbs, lime juice, cilantro, green onion, and 1/4 cup of the cooled sauce you just made.  Hold off on the salmon for now.

 

Mix it together very well and it should look like this.

 

Mix in the salmon burger meat and it look like this.

 

Form into patties and it should make 6-8.  Place the patties on a lined or grease cookie sheet and broil on the top rack of your oven for 5 minutes.  If they are a smaller patty or meatball, you only need to cook for 2-3 minutes.  That is it you are done.

 

They come out of the oven looking like this.

 

You can slather the patties with the remaining peanut sauce.  If not, you can mix it with a little may and use it for a sandwich.

 

But the cake can be eaten on its own as well.

 

The combination of the ginger, garlic, and soy sauce make this great but the touch of the peanut flavor make it irresistible.
