DIRECTIONS

  • Make the Sauce: Place yogurt in a strainer lined with cheesecloth or papper towels set over a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, drain in the refigerator for 6 to 24 hours. Puree chiles in a lender with the water. Mix with yogurt and add salt to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Make the Salmon Cakes: Bring a large pot of water to a simmer. Add the salmon and simmer 3 to 4 minutes, until cooked. Drain and cool, then break into chunks.
  • Combine safflower oil, onion, and thyme in a large skillet and saute over low heat until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add red pepper and cook 1 minute longer. Cool mixture.
  • Heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine salmon, onion mixture, and remaining ingredients except bread crumbs for coating in a large bowl. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Shape patties into 12 cakes. Coat with bread crumbs and place on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 5 minutes then turn over and bake 2 to 3 minutes longer, until lightly browned. Serve with sauce.
