Salmon Brown Rice Cakes with Fresh Salsa


This easy and healthy recipe for salmon brown rice cakes with fresh salsa makes a fast and delicious weeknight meal - with leftovers for lunch, too!

What you will need

2 pouches Chicken of the Sea Pink Salmon (5 oz each)

2 containers uncooked Minute® Ready to Serve Brown Rice (1 package – 8.8 oz)

2 eggs

2 tablespoons brown rice flour (or regular/whole wheat flour, or ground flaxseed)

3 tablespoons chopped cilantro

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

dash of cayenne pepper

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1 cup finely chopped tomato

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

zest and juice of one lime

salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all cake ingredients in a large bowl, mix until well combined.

Using wet hands (to prevent sticking), divide the mixture into 6 patties.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with a thin layer of oil or nonstick spray. Carefully transfer the patties to the skillet with a spatula.

Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown, crispy around the edges, and firm to the touch.

Meanwhile, combine all salsa ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.

Serve cakes warm, atop greens and with salsa. Enjoy!
