How to make it

  • Use 1/2 the challah bread soft and shredded into small pieces. Slice the other 1/2 challah bread and put in the oven at 200 degrees for about 1 hour. Raise the oven to 350 degrees. Make the bread from the oven into breadcrumbs. Leave the breadcrumbs course don't make them very fine.
  • Take a baking pan lightly cover the bottom with a light oil like canola or line with parchment paper. Season the salmon with a light dusting of salt pepper and old bay seasoning. Put the skinned side of the salmon down in a the pan. Put it into a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 minutes keeping it just under cooked. Remove from and allow it to return back to room temp.
  • Take a skillet with a little olive oil and 1 tbsp of butter. Saute the peppers, celery with a little salt and pepper. When they soften add the garlic, ginger + 1 tbsp of old bay seasoning. Saute about another 3 minutes to cook the garlic and ginger. Remove all the mixture and allow it to come back to room temp.
  • Put the saute in a large bowl. Remove the meat off the salmon add it to the bowl, the bread crumbs, eggs, 1 tbsp old bay, oils from the salmon tray and add the scallions. Add the shredded bread a little at a time until you reach a good consistency so that the mix is not to wet and hold together. Mix well breaking up the salmon For a 3.2 lb salmon fillet I used all the bread andix well.
  • Pack the mix into a 1/2 cup measuring cup for a main course and tap out a perfectly shaped salmon cakes. Or form a palm size ball into your hand and form it into your salmon cakes. Use a smaller 1/4 measuring cup for a appetizer or as a side dish.
  • Fry them in olive oil and butter in the skillet you used to saute the vegetables in. Fry them on a medium high heat about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Place on a rack or paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • You can also make them in the oven if you want to avoid eating fried foods. Preheat the oven about 400 degrees F Spay the patties with oil and place onto a rack in a baking tray so they cook evenly all around. Bake until golden brown.
