Serve salmon cakes on top of a lightly dressed mesclun or baby spinach salad. Sprinkle fresh chopped chives and enjoy as an alfresco lunch or the start to an elegant meal. Fish lovers will be hooked on this tasty preparation. A great way to use up leftover white wine and extra fresh herbs, these cakes also freeze beautifully.
I created this recipe since that little people will find fish more appealing! Many parents aren’t sure how to cook fish and this recipe not only makes it easy, but is a big hit with kids. I noticed that the frozen fish stick are usually loaded with trans-fat and other unwanted preservative – things that don’t help little bodies grow strong.
Parchment paper sounds fancy, but it’s really just paper you can use in baking. I use it to construct a little paper bag to make an ultra healthy, super fast fish bake that is a tradition in French cuisine. You can always use aluminum foil in its place, however fish always tastes better to me cooked in parchment.
Allow the mixture to marinate 30 minutes before serving, but not longer as the grapefruit will ‘overcook’ the fish. You will notice that the salmon will become more opaque as it marinates. I like to serve it in individual parfait glasses for an elegant presentation and garnish with the remaining tablespoon of cilantro and bits of zest. This dish pairs well with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.
