This dish has an Asian flair and is a healthy, filling, easy meal that I now make about once a week.
- 1 (14 3/4 ounce) canwild alaska salmon
- 3 -4 scallions, finely minced
- 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh ginger
- 1 large egg white
- 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh squeezed lime juice or 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (for frying)
- 3 cups mixed greens
- 3 teaspoons wasabi paste
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1⁄4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup light olive oil or 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 cup dark sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves (optional)
- salt and pepper
- Drain salmon and remove any larger bones and vertebrae. Put salmon in a bowl and add scallions, ginger, egg white and soy sauce, lime juice and carefully mix with your fingers to keep salmon pieces larger rather than smaller.
- Make 2 thicker patties versus wider patties. Make sure pan isn't crowded or they are harder to flip and will break apart. Cook in heated olive oil on a medium setting turning only once as they are delicate – total cooking time 7 minutes per side.
- *Whisk wasabi, honey, and vinegar well. Slowly drizzle in oils to emulsify. Add salt and pepper to taste and chopped cilantro if you choose to use it.
- Toss mixed greens with 3 TBS of the dressing to coat and place on plate and top with salmon patty.
- If you do not like too much wasabi start with 1 teaspoon then add more if needed.
- I also like to add a healthy dousing of Chilula hot sauce to the patties.
These are really different and good! A bit messy because they indeed are very delicate to handle, but being low carb, they're definitely healthier than other patties and worth the little extra mess. Next time - and there will be a next time - I'll use some more wasabi. Thanks for posting!
