Do you prefer a hot or cold lunch?
Lunch, when I am working at home is typically a cold sandwich or salad. Sometimes, I heat up soup.
Today, however, we had some leftover cous cous and green beans, but nothing warm to go with it.
Then I found the Bumble Bee Salmon can from my #BeeSquad package and thought I'd try and make some salmon cakes that didn't require baking. When I'm ready for lunch I'm READY for lunch, you know what I mean?
Here's what I did and it turned out PERFECT (for me anyway):
1. empty contents of Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Atlantic Salmon into a bowl and add a spoonful or two of mayo (instead of egg so it doesn't have to be baked to be cooked through)
2. add bread crumbs (I used slightly seasoned Panko style which are lighter in flavor) and form into patties. Place patties in hot skillet with oil already heated through.
3. Once browned on both sides, cover with a lid and turn heat to low to heat the patties (again, for temp only since there's no raw egg).
Serve with last night's leftover cous cous and greenbeans!
This was EASY and QUICK and was deeelicious. I might squirt lemon juice if I had some but the mayo made the salmon cakes a little creamy which gave it enough flavor for me.
