This salad is simply one of my favourite meals! I absolutely love these Salmon Cakes and the options are endless.

Create a beautiful mixed green salad with fresh toppings of your choosing. My favourites are red peppers, strawberries, goat cheese, avocado and cashews. It all depends on what I have in the house. Sometimes it’s candied pecans or sunflower seeds.

The options are equally endless for creating delicious salmon cakes. As with most things I make, I will make a simpler version for the kids, before adding more ingredients.

Start with canned salmon (drained, and remove the skin, but the bones are easily broken down with your fingers which actually adds a lot of calcium) and mix with an egg, salt and pepper, breadcrumbs and a bit of dijon mustard. Form a couple small cakes or balls from that mixture and roll in breadcrumbs.

Then add tiny pieces of red pepper, green onion, and chili flakes. Sometimes I even add a bit of curry for a different flavour. Form into cakes and coat in breadcrumbs. Place all of the cakes on a plate and refrigerate for 1 hour before cooking. Sometimes I skip this step. No big deal, but the fridge helps them to set. Heat a non-stick skillet with a few tablespoons of coconut oil and add cakes once pan is nice and hot.

While your cakes are chillin’ in the fridge, make a homemade dressing for the salad. Making your own salad dressing is a great way to control too much added sugar or unexpected unhealthy ingredients. For this salad I like to combine olive oil, red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar (a good raw one like Bragg’s ACV adds tremendous benefits in my opinion), a touch of raspberry jam if you have it, and salt and pepper.

What flavour combination will you create?
