Oven baked salmon cakes
Baked salmon cakes: A healthy and delicious weeknight meal
Salmon cakes are a classic dish that is both healthy and delicious. They are made with cooked salmon, breadcrumbs, eggs, and seasonings, and can be fried, baked, or grilled. Baking is the healthiest option, as it avoids the added fat and calories of frying.
Salmon is a good source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins B12 and D. It is also a low-calorie food that is good for heart health. Breadcrumbs help to bind the salmon cakes together and add texture. Eggs add protein and richness. Seasonings such as dill, lemon juice, and Old Bay seasoning give the salmon cakes a flavorful boost.
Baked salmon cakes are a quick and easy meal to make. They can be served on their own, with a side of rice or potatoes, or on top of a salad. They are also a great option for meal prep, as they can be made ahead of time and reheated when ready to eat.
Here’s a link to the recipe.
- For extra crispy salmon cakes, coat them in panko breadcrumbs before baking.
- To make the salmon cakes ahead of time, form them into patties and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and bake the salmon cakes for 25-30 minutes, or until cooked through.
- Serve the salmon cakes with your favorite dipping sauce, such as tartar sauce, remoulade, or cocktail sauce.
