Salmon "Pancake"



Ingredients
1/2 T. Fat (I used coconut oil)
6oz Can Salmon (I used this Chinook/King Salmon)
1 Egg
1 T. Chopped Cilantro, plus more for garnish
1/4 tsp. Bay Seasoning
1/2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
Squeeze of Hot Sauce (I use this brand)

*A nice addition to this pancake is 1/4 cup of shredded sweet potato and a pinch of Penzeys "Northwoods Fire".
  1. Mix ingredients together, to combine. Set aside.
  2. Heat a pan or skillet, over medium-high heat, and add fat.
  3. Add mixture to hot pan, press into a thin (about 1/2" thick) patty, and cook until browned, 3-5 minutes.
  4. Flip patty, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover with a lid. Cook another 3 minutes, until cooked through. 
  5. Serve with more hot sauce and a sprinkle of cilantro. 

I ate this, myself, but it could easily be shared or made into smaller cakes and served as an appetizer. You could also add a squeeze of lemon and/or zest to brighten up the flavor...I was just looking for something quick and easy that I could throw together in the AM. Perfect way to start the day!

I tried this for dinner today - made about 5 small pancakes.

Used tuna instead of salmon, green onions instead of cilantro, added mushrooms, and only used salt and pepper instead of bay seasoning.

Still tasted GREAT!!! will be making this more often for sure - super fast and easy!

Thank you for the idea!
