Salmon Cakes

  • cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 scallions
  • 1 large egg
  • .5 Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 EZ-Open cans Chicken of the Sea Pink Salmon


  • ½ cup roasted red peppers from a jar, packed in water, finely chopped
  • 12 kalamata olives pitted and finely chopped
  • cup crumbled feta cheese


  • In a food processor, pulse the oats to fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl and add the garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Add the scallions to the food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Transfer to the bowl with the oat mixture.
  • Add the salmon to the bowl with the scallions and oats. Add the egg and lemon juice.
  • Mix well. Use your hands to take 2 tablespoons of the mixture and form it into a small patty. Place it onto a plate lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Repeat with the remaining salmon mixture (you should be able to form 16 small patties).
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the salmon cakes and cook until browned on both sides, 7 to 8 minutes, flipping halfway. Repeat with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil and the remaining salmon cakes.
  • To serve, top each salmon cake with feta, roasted red pepper, and chopped olives. Serve on a platter or in lettuce cups, if desired.
