Nothing beats a homemade seafood meal, especially, if that meal involves ingredients like good old salmon and cod. However, if one manages to make cakes out of them, then that meal is taken to a next level! Priceless.

1 large Salmon steak, cleaned pat dry and chopped ($2.50)

½ Onion, chopped (.50)
Celery, chopped (.20)
1 jalapeno, seeds removed, chopped (.45)
½ green bell pepper, seeds removed, chopped (.25)
5 Garlic gloves, chopped (.20)
1 tbsp. Angie’s dry seasoning (.15)
1 ½ tbsp. Angie’s Basting Olive Oil (.50)
Paprika, Black pepper (.10)
1 egg (.20)
1 lime or a lemon (.60)
Flat leaf parsley spring (.10)
Prep all the ingredients listed under the ingredients list.
Season the chopped salmon and cod with my dry seasoning, pepper and paprika.
Saute the chopped onion and peppers in my basting olive oil until golden brown. Remove from the skillet.
Add to the skillet the cod/salmon combination and sauté just briefly for few minutes.
Remove from skillet and allow to cool down completely.
In a separate bowl, add the lightly cooked fish, 1 egg, the sautéed peppers, onion garlic mix, and Panko. Stir until all is combined.
Now begin to shape the salmon-cod cakes by making a ball with the palm of your hands and then flatten it down lightly.
In a skillet with more basting olive oil, cook the cakes until golden brown. Only, remember, they are already half way cooked and only need to brown.
Slice your lemon, lime or both and begin to plate.
I do not use mayo and instead made a dipping sauce with fat free Tzatziki, ketchup and basting oil. Fabulous!
