Cooking Light JULY 2005

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 patties and about 1 1/2 teaspoons aioli)

Ingredients

  • Aioli:
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • Cakes:
  • 3 (6-ounce) cans skinless, boneless pink salmon in water, drained
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning blend
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Preparation

To prepare aioli, combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

To prepare cakes, combine salmon and next 5 ingredients (through mustard) in a medium bowl. Divide salmon mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each portion into a (1/2-inch-thick) patty. Dredge patties in 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place patties in pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and heated through. Serve aioli over salmon.
