A few months ago one of the girls introduced us to Wild Planet Tuna, a sustainably caught, eco friendly tuna, excellent. After trying the tuna I bought Wild Planet Alaska Pink Salmon, eco friendly and sustainably caught. I made salmon cakes and discovered it is as flavorful as the wonderful salmon croquettes served at my elementary school in Texas over 60 years ago. I always enjoyed those Fridays when salmon croquettes were served in the cafeteria. That is a happy memory. Absolutely wonderful! I make salmon cakes often, but I’ve never found any to match those Texas croquettes, until now.
Wild Planet is a tad bit more in cost. For us, it is worth it. I’ve only found it in small cans. I can usually get two cakes from one can. Therefore, I splurge and buy two cans, because around here, one salmon cake each is never enough.
I mix bread crumbs with one beaten egg, into two cans of the salmon. I cook them in a bit of oil. Place the cakes into the skillet, cover and brown on one side, turn and cover, continuing to cook until done.
For this supper, I served them with raw veggies and mashed potatoes, because when we think of salmon cakes, mashed potatoes is the perfect side.
A glass of white wine is a nice accompaniment.
I am not compensated for mentioning Wild Planet Tuna or Wild Planet Wild Alaska Pink Salmon. We like the tuna and salmon and want to spread the word.
