Salmon is a fish pretty high on my favorites list. I love it pretty much any way you serve it to me, broiled, pan fried, grilled, sous-vide, etc. Okay, so it doesn’t even have to be cooked it can also be raw and I’ll devour it. Mmmmm sushi, sashimi….. Sorry for the diversion I’m still high from my sashimi gorging session earlier this evening. Back on track, all those previously mentioned cooking methods for salmon but one you don’t see is battered and fried.

Actually I have eaten battered and fried bits of salmon or losos as it is known in Czech. Yes, leave it to the Czechs to fry salmon right up. Some of you may remember that fried foods don’t really agree with me, but for those yummy bites of battered and fried salmon I was always willing to make the sacrifice. Unfortunately the little hole in the wall that sold those bites of yumminess closed down. (enter sad face here) My health and waistline may secretly be thankful but my belly is sad…a little rounder but sad.

I like to think that I have tasted salmon cooked in just about every method. I’ve also eaten a variety of salmon cuts, and styles. But then it dawn on me that I’d never tried canned salmon. Why not? Canned tuna is a favorite so how much different can salmon be. Actually it wasn’t so different. Though upon opening the can it didn’t look very appetizing, in the end I thought it tasted pretty darn good.

I thought up this recipe probably due to a sub-conscience daydreaming plan of a sushi dinner the following night. You know when one goes out for sushi there is wasabi, soy sauce, ginger and most likely a miso soup involved. So viola! The ingredients or rather flavors for these salmon cakes was born. As I was preparing the ingredients the memory of the fried salmon bites kept popping up. But I knew that I’d better keep the cakes healthy for the sake of my belly and so they went into the oven rather than the frying pan.

To keep the whole meal serve these salmon cakes with a side salad or salad greens, avocado slices, a dollop of wasabi and a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds. Enjoy!

    wow this is a great idea and it reminds me of Goan macrel fish cakes. Salmon of course is a fish much favored by me, and I hope to get some soon. I didnt know that they sell canned salmon fish nowadays. I live like in the space….. ;)

    Great Post and I enjoy your photographie!

    Looks very tasty! I love that this is such a healthy take on this dish, plus the flavors sound like the cakes would have a wonderful kick :) I never make fish cakes because of the fat/calories, but this may just change my home cooking!

  3. says

    These look fantastic – i love the flavour combination you used! When i make fish cake I turned to gear towards a more thai flavour…but this Japanese inspired one is just brilliant! Guess what I will be making in the near future? :) Besos

    These cakes look so deliciously. You are probably the only post that I have seen that has a recipe for baked fish cakes-bravo. Also, you do have a tasty ingredient list to insure that these are flavorful. This recipe is well worth a try, thanks for sharing.

    It’s too pretty to eat, Nancy! :D
    I first saw wasabi and it caught my attention right away. Then miso and salmon..hmmm…my mouth waters and I’m drooling in front of my computer!

    Usually I stay away from seafood but salmon fish is my favourite and I often cook at home. Using canned salmon for these pretty cakes was wonderful.

  7. says

    I agree. Canned salmon is a fine choice, especially in places where fresh fish is hard to find or way too expensive. Like you say, it’s a fatty fish like tuna or sardines so it lends itself well to the canning process. Dress it up with some tasty seasonings like wasabi et voilà!

      Hi Frank, Ah glad to hear you agree :) Sometimes fresh is hard to come by here, or the right cut isn’t available, so it’s good to have an alternative. Thanks!

    I just recently experimented with making little salmon patties, but I haven’t tried canned salmon yet. And I don’t know why! These little babies look delicious and the kick in flavor from the wasabi and miso sound great. Im glad you taste tested these for us and now I can’t wait to get a chance to try them.

  9. says

    You have to be careful mentioning the word “wasabi” around me, I just may find a way to actually show up on your doorstep ;) These are fantastic and I love the fact that they are baked! Gorgeous photos as always…
    Big hugs
