Ingredients

  • 6 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans salmon, drained, skin and bones removed
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 5 scallions
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped canned water chestnuts
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce, recipe follows
Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt, or 6 tablespoons nonfat Greek-style yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce

Directions

Remove crusts from the bread, break into pieces, and process in a food processor until you get a fine bread crumb. In a large bowl, flake apart the salmon with a fork. Add the egg and mix well. Finely chop 4 of the scallions and add to the bowl. Add the water chestnuts, cilantro, pepper, and the bread crumbs and mix well. Shape the mixture into 12 patties.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 6 patties and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Transfer the cooked patties to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil to the pan, and cook the rest of the salmon cakes, 5 minutes on each side.

Chop the remaining 1 scallion. Serve salmon cakes with the sauce and garnish with scallion.

Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce:

If using regular yogurt place the yogurt in a strainer lined with a paper towel. Put the strainer over a bowl and place in the refrigerator to drain and thicken for 30 minutes.

Place drained yogurt or Greek-style yogurt into a small bowl. Add mayonnaise, ginger, sesame oil, and soy sauce. Whisk until smooth.
