Salmon Cakes

Tonight Stefan came home from work a bit early and we made dinner together. It's quite a feat considering we have the tiniest of tiny kitchens and there's not much counter space. But, as the old saying goes, if there's a will, there's a way.

I always love being able to make a proper meal rather than having the options of eating alone or at 10 o'clock at night.

While searching about for something that looked delicious on Food Gawker, my old go to resource on nights like this, I searched for salmon and found a great recipe for Salmon Cakes that are similar to Crab Cakes.

I was also able to incorporate Panko, which is a Japanese breading, that my mom raves about. I had to visit the specialty Asian grocery for that. Whenever I go to an ethnic grocery I get inspired and think that I should visit more often. 


Tonight was definitely proof of the delicious things that can come out of working together and enjoying the fruits of our labor.

Your salmon dish looks yummy! Where do you usually go to shop for Asian grocery? My favorite one is at Rosenheimerplatz.

Your salmon cakes look delicious! I keep reading and hearing about Panko too. Tons of people in the States just rave about it, Paula Deen included.
It must have been wonderful to have Stefan home for dinner. Having a quiet dinner for two is really wonderful.

You'll have to try them! They were fairly effortless.

Thanks so much! Which market do you go to? I know there are several there. I went to the Hong Kong Market at Motorama.

You'll have to try using Panko. I could see Paula Deen using it in her southern cooking.
