Ginger Salmon Patties--- No grill needed!

Let's do something different.

According to the classic Betty Crocker Cookbook

Your Mom was right-Patties will save you time! Make them now-

eat them later.

You will need a big

bowl, a small bowl,a knife, a mixing setup (food processor or blender ) a frying spatula, a cast iron pan or Arnold Grill , tinfoil and measuring spoons. You are making an aioli sauce, with ginger first. If you do not have everything in this ingredient list , just check your laptop to see if you can do some substitutes.

Ingredients for aioli sauce

1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt

2 cloves garlic minced or grated

1 teaspoon honey (or more to taste)

1 teaspoon wasabi powder or prepared horseradish in jar

Ingredients for salmon patties

1 pound skinless salmon cut into 3 inch chunks

2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger

4 scallions thinly sliced

2/3 cup plain panko breadcrumbs

4 teaspoons reduced sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil

Leaves of red leaf or Bibb Lettuce (serve fish in)

1 avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced

taco shells optional


aioli made first

In a small bowl stir together the yogurt, garlic, honey, wasabi powder or prepared horseradish and look at the thickness. Then,taste it. Some people like it drizzly so feel free to add a bit of mayonnaise or salad dressing (some people swear by ranch dressing)

Salmon patties

using large bowl place salmon chunks, ginger, and scallions You can use a food processor / blender to make a mix DO NOT OVERPROCESS into mush

If you have to get out the chopping board and make like Julia Child this salmon ginger and scallion mix will look pretty in the lettuce leaves or taco shells

add the panko breadcrumbs and soy sauce to the bowl and shape into patties

Average is 4 patties about 1/2 inch thick

Next get the large nonstick or oiled cast iron pan or Arnold grill warm

Cast iron, nonstick or Arnold Grill : heat the cooking surface but do not let that surface start smoking

if using the Arnold grill , spray with cooking oil, then place the patties in the foil and seal three sides, let the juice flow from the bottom CLOSE the lid

In the cast iron skillet or non-stick pan add the patties and cool until browned on one side about 2-3 minutes The Arnold grill averages 400 degrees so 3 minutes and OUT

In a nonstick pan or cast iron skillet Flip the patties, and cook another 2 to 3 minutes

Place patties in the bib lettuce or red leaf lettuce and if you wish put a patty with lettuce

into the taco shells.

Drizzle the aioli sauce. Enjoy
