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 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!
