I woke up this morning and wanted salmon and I was tired of warming it from a can so I decided today was the day to try to make Salmon Cakes from preps...
This recipe makes 8 hamburger size patties or 16 appetizer size ones.
2 cans 14 oz salmon drained
2 c cracker meal
2 green onions
1/2 bellpepper (red or green)
1 Tbsp lemon pepper
2 Tbsp lemon Juice
1 tsp dill
1 tsp sage
I mashed everything together but the cracker meal. I just made my own by rolling crackers in a ziploc with my rolling pin. Once everything is incorporated add cracker meal. Adjust to taste. Form into patties and refrigerate
Warm cast iron with a bit of olive oil and butter. If you want the cakes to be more crisp you can pat them with panko or cornmeal.
On the Medium High setting these cooked in about 3 minutes on each side. I did not add any kind of salt to this because the crackers and the salmon already have salt.
The sauce I used was 2 tbsp german mustard, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 2 tbsp olive oil = whisked hard with a bit of black pepper at the end.
This was our lunch:
Wild Mescal Salad with Roma Tomatoes
In a SHTF situation I would just substitute canned greens instead of salad if the garden wasn't thriving.
It looks very light - but actually it was very filling. Everyone was happy about it - even the doggies coz I totally missed the pan and a patty hit the floor. LOL
This is a nice finished way to eat some of your preps! As long as you have oil or butter you can gratify that craving for crispiness. Also crackers such as the matzo we got (4lbs for $1)...can double as breadcrumbs.
Shooters World Treats!!!
Afro asked me to bake the boys at shooters world because they are always nice enough to comp us for our range time.
The staff said - oh no need to do that, we like you man. Afro said,"my wife can bake and
it's the least you can do."
They are nice people even if we had to pay I would still think they were nice. I used the 7up cake recipe - that makes 36 cupcakes!
When I meet nice folks I do nice things. When I meet shitty folks I do shitty things. :)
