Salmon Patties with Dill Cashew Cream
Salmon Patty Ingredients:
2 6oz cans of salmon, drained, remove any visible skin (pink salmon, sockeye)
½ cup panko breadcrumbs, plus 1 cup extra for coating
1 large shallot, minced
¼ cup minced herbs (dill or parsley)
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 large egg
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1. Combine flaked salmon, bread crumbs, shallot, and herbs in a medium mixing bowl
2. Whisk together the mayonnaise, egg, and mustard in a small bowl, then pour on top of the salmon. Gently stir until everything is evenly mixed.
3. Using a spring loaded ice cream scooper or ¼-cup measuring cup, shape salmon mixture into small patties.
4. Place them on a plate or baking sheet, spaced a little apart. At this point, the patties will feel very loose and wet; transfer the patties to the refrigerator and chill for at least 15 minutes (or cover and refrigerate for up to a day). This help firm up the fish cakes and makes them easier to handle.
5. While the fish cakes chill, make cashew cream sauce.
6. Preheat oven to 425°F. Layer a baking sheet with foil and brush with a thin film of oil.
7. In a shallow bowl or plate, pour in about 1 cup breadcrumps
8. Remove patties from refrigerator. Gently brush both sides of a patty with oil, then coat with breadcrumbs. Place each patty on prepared baking sheet, spaced at least 1 inch a part.
9. Bake for 15-20minutes or until breadcrumbs become slightly golden and patties are heated through.
10. Transfer the patties to serving plates, top with cashew cream sauce.

Dairy Free Dill Cashew Cream
2 cups raw cashews
1 cup water, plus more to cover cashews
Pinch of salt
Juice of ½ lemon
2 teaspoons dry dill weed
1 clove of garlic
1. In a container with a lid, add water to cover cashews and let soak overnight to soften the nuts. This recipe will also work if you forgot to soak the nuts, but blending them will take a bit longer.
2. Drain cashews and add them to a food processor or hand blender/immersion blender.
3. Start with adding ½ cup of water, salt, lemon juice, and garlic to cashews. Pulse in blender until smooth. Add more water, if needed, to desired consistency.
4. Stir in dill until evenly distributed.
