This Friday I’m making salmon cakes seasoned with fresh coriander. For me a lovely combination is salmon with coriander (cilantro). Coriander adds a fresh citrus flavor to the salmon.
I know many people don’t like coriander. It is a genetic trait if you find it taste like citrus or taste like soap! If you don’t fancy coriander you can easy exchange it for parsley!
To make the cakes I mix the ingredients in my food processor. When blending fish and seafood in a food processor it is important that it is done quickly as if it blends too long the fish can get tough. Therefore I always roughly chop the ingredients before adding them to the food processor. And I use the pulse function on the food processor.
Serve the salmon cakes with a yogurt sauce seasoned with garlic and ground cumin. I suggest that you start with the sauce as it tastes best if the flavors get to mature in the fridge for at least 20 min.
And a fresh couscous salad with some green onions, cucumbers, tomatoes and again chopped coriander on top! Seasoned with a basic vinaigrette If you like to you can also serve with some lemon wedges!
