A flavourful starter or main, this recipe uses lots of gorgeous Asian flavours! You can also easily substitute the ingredients and use leftovers, too - such as sweetcorn instead of onions, leftover salmon (barbecued, grilled or baked) instead of fresh or tinned - they still turn out great!
Great recipe! Nice variation on basic salmon patties. Did some tweaking because it did seem like proportions were out. Here are my changes: Sauce-doubled garlic to 4 cloves -doubled green onion to 2 stems -halved lime juice to 2 T. -added 2tsp. wasabi powder Patties-halved bread crumbs to 3/4 c. -used 1 lb. leftover salmon (fresh not canned, cooked) -finely mince onions -form into patties and refrigerate at least 15 minutes - 03 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I enjoyed this recipe (and it was a hit with my 1 yr old, too, and "okay" with my 7 year old and 36 year old). I made quite a few modifications, because I made it impromptu. For the sauce, I did not have miso or sake. I added rice wine vinegar instead of the sake (not quite 1/4 cup) and extra lime. I think that the cakes are good on their own--better without the sauce--or maybe just a little lime/butter sauce would be good. I amended the cakes as well, since the proportion seemed off. I used a whole can of salmon (14 oz), and less bread crumbs--maybe 1 cup max? I had to use 2 eggs to get them moist enough. I added a bit of lime juice as well. My 7 year old complained that there were too many onions, so I'd chop them more finely next time. - 04 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I must say that this dish was absolutely delicious. I used authentic Miso paste and Sesame oil from Japan. I used a tablespoon of the Miso paste, and it was a little too much. The other user was right. You just need maybe half a tablespoon, but all other measurements were perfect. Salmon cakes came out good texture, and the sauce with it was yummm. I made my own chinese fried rice to go with it, and it was really tasty, my hubby just ate up the whole dish! It came out to be about 7 salmon cakes. - 12 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
