And another! - Salmon Patties Revisited

Tonight, I decide to make a new version of the salmon patties we had a few weeks ago and enjoyed a lot - They were a hit with the husband, not so much with the child - lots of big flavours, very low carb, and full of healthy protein and Omega-3s!

Ingredients
8 ounces salmon, skinned and chopped medium-coarse
1 egg
1 Tbsp chopped garlic
1 Tbsp chopped fresh ginger
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 handful cilantro, chopped
1 tsp chili-garlic sauce
2 Tbsp sesame seeds

Directions
Mix all ingredients together until well combined
Using a third-cup measuring cup, scoop onto a piece of plastic wrap
Cover with another sheet of plastic wrap - pull onto a plate or cookie sheet and freeze for 20 minutes
Remove from freezer, remove covering sheet of plastic wrap, press sesame seeds onto tops of patties

Heat oil in pan, Use a thin spatula to transfer patties, to pan, and fry over medium heat, about 4 minutes to a side (after flipping the first side over, add sesame seeds to the other side)

I served this with a sauce made of mayonnaise, soy sauce, rice vinegar, chopped green onion, and chopped cilantro.




This is my husband`s plate. I ate a few carrots, a couple spears of asparagus, and not quite 2 of the salmon patties. This recipe, using 8 ounces of fish, made 5 patties that were each a scant one third cup - this was plenty for a WLS person plus a husband who appears to be a bottomless pit - adjust as necessary for your family!
