These salmon and quinoa cakes cook in no time. I love them with cheats sweet and sour.
I love making these Salmon Quinoa Cakes. It’s probably the nicest way to eat quinoa that I know. Its disguised in these delicious Salmon Cakes that have a bit of an Asian flavoured twist.
If you have never seen Salmon mince or ground Salmon you are in for a treat. I made a great Hoisin Salmon Ball soup with it not so long back too. ( picture and link below) the Salmon cooks and fuses together creating this absolutely perfect fish cake. Ask your local fish shop to get you some. It’s made with all the little bits of salmon taken from the tale and portions close to the bone. All this meat used to be wasted so you will be doing the local a favour too. It makes a great stuffing for whole fish or an unusual Larb (a Thai mince dish usually made with chicken or Pork)
I am going to say these might be the easiest and tastiest fish cakes you are ever going to make. Don’t forget to make the quick and easy cheats Sweet and sour vegetables to go with them.

1 cup of quinoa once cooked makes 2 and 3/4 cups of cooked quinoa. This recipe calls for 2 cups of cooked quinoa. That means 1 cup of raw.
If you like the idea of this try my Salmon Hoisin Meatballs in Asian broth. It makes an even quicker dinner. I am sure there are endless ways to use Salmon mince. Let me know if you come up with a few more.
