San Francisco Salmon Cakes

From: Elizabeth Bennett - Mill Creek, WA


1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
3 pieces Manischewitz® Garlic Tam Tam™ Snack Crackers
1 1/4 pounds silver salmon fillet, boned and skinned
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 scallions, chopped and divided
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
Black pepper


In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and soy sauce until well blended. Stir in sesame seeds and chill until ready to use. Break crackers up and place in a food processor. Process until fine crumbs are formed, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a large bowl. Cut salmon into 1 inch cubes. Place salmon in food processor and pulse 8-10 times to break salmon into small pieces. Transfer to bowl with matzo. Add eggs, 2/3 of scallions, salt, and black pepper. Using hands, gently combine. Form salmon mixture into 4 cakes.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook cakes 3 minutes, then flip over with spatula. Add remaining tablespoon olive oil, if needed. Cook an additional 3 minutes or until done to preference. To serve, plate salmon cakes, drizzle with soy-mayonnaise dressing and top with reserved scallions.
