The answer is 7 single servings plus 5 salmon cakes (2 cakes/person). That’s a total of 9 servings and there is still 1 salmon cake left for a lucky eater. Tune in tomorrow to get my Salmon Cakes Recipe
There are several species of this fish, while I was in Alaska; I learn a thing or two about it. Also, the salmon industry provides us with options to choose from; fresh, canned, smoked and frozen. Salmon is very healthy and a good source of fatty omega-3 (good cholesterol, well, whatever medical studies you read these days indicate that omega-3 help prevent heart disease and stroke.) I love salmon and prefer to purchase it fresh and smoked. OK, let’s start cutting these filets to see how many meals we can get out of them.
FIRST: Cut the tail 2-3 inches from the end. (You will get 2 out of the 2 filets and will use them for the salmon cakes with another thicker slice of salmon.)
SECOND: Cut the following 3 salmon steaks about 2” from the bottom up. (You will have 3 pieces left per whole filet.)
THIRD: You will end up with your last steak that will be between 2 ½ to 3”. You will use this one to make your 5 salmon cakes with the 2 salmon tails you cut first.
REMINDER: For your salmon cakes you will need the 2 small tail pieces and I large 2 ½ to 3” salmon steak.
CONCLUDING: After all your steaks are cut, freeze them separately in plastic bags and label them with how many steaks in that bag and the date you froze them.
