man. y'all are as excited about these samman cakes as i am!!! as you should be ;) i realize i put corn and beans in a lot of my dishes but i just love that southwestern taste and style. i could totally just eat a big bowl of corn, beans, crispy bacon, cheese, and avocado. YUM. ok. focus! we're here to chat about these cakes.
so, i made some salmon burgers earlier this week and just threw fresh, raw salmon chunks (i took the skin off myself then chopped it up) into my food processor and pulsed it a few times. i then added everything else (veggies, seasonings, eggs, etc.) formed the patties, and threw them on the grill. some of you guys saw it on my IG stories and were like, "um, what happened to those salmon cakes, Leah!? why didn't you post them?". they were fugly, guys. not IG worthy at all. lol. now don't get it twisted-- they were tasty and we killed all of them! but I love the texture, flavor, and appearance of these cakes right here a whole lot mo'. cooking the salmon first made all the difference.
living dairy-free has never been easier! i have linked some of the vegan ingredients i used in the actual recipe below for you guys as requested.
i whipped up a quick homemade tarter sauce to go with them:
- 1/2 cup light mayo
- 2 tbsp capers (or dill relish)
- 1 heaping tbsp fresh dill, minced
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- pink Himalayan sea salt & cracked black pepper to taste
coming up next....i've got a full length postpartum core video by request as soon as i sit down (how does one do that?) and edit it! for now, here's a teaser if you hadn't caught it on IG yet. 7 diastasis recti safe, beginner exercises you can do to regain core strength. #pressplay
what else would you like to see via video? i'm listening...
