A friend of mine made this at last year's 4th of July celebration, and after much begging and groveling, shared this super-easy, fun, and VERY yummy recipe, which you can easily double or triple for a big crowd! The cold left-overs (if any) the next day are FABULOUS! TRY THIS WITH CHICKEN!! Grill 4 Chx breasts 4-5 min ea side, then finish in 350 degree oven in covered pan with butter & olive oil for +/-20 min. OH! MAGNIFICENT (great sandwiches w/tomato, cream cheese, and avocado).
This recipe was published in Cooking Light. I make it a bit different than it originally appeared, though (I don't use fat-free mayonnaise, saltines, etc. and also add some additional ingredients to suit my taste). If you would like to make the original version, just stick with the fat-free items and omit the last 4 items in the ingredient list (mayo through Tabasco) and you will have the original recipe. Prep time includes 20 minutes chilling time for the salmon cakes.
This is the easiest and most delicious meal that I make! It turned my non-fish eating husband into a salmon maniac! It is quick simple and so luxurious. I have wowed many a guest with this simple recipe.
This is very quick to prepare; I have marinated the salmon for as little as 1/2 an hour, yet it has plenty of flavor. For ease of preparation, we buy individually portioned salmon from a big-box store. We prefer to grill it on our indoor contact because it's SO quick. I've used straight brown sugar, Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, and straight Splenda - and they all work very well. But I think the brown sugar or the brown sugar blend will give you a little better color.
Plan ahead the salmon will need to marinade for at least 8 hours, this marinade is enough for up to 16 ounces of salmon- you may adjust the fresh garlic and cayenne pepper to taste --- you will LOVE this!
I like this recipe because it is simple and easy to make. I've actually made the guacomole in advance, so that the flavours set in. This is good as part of a light supper, when some of your other recipes are just not ready yet, and you need an extra few minutes to wait.
