Difficulty: ●●●◦◦

  • 16 oz (1 lb, 2.2 kg) skinless salmon fillet

  • 1/3 cup (43 g) shallots, diced

  • 1 cup (67 g) kale, chopped

  • 3/4 cup (135 g) quinoa, cooked

  • 2 tbsp (28 g) Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 tsp (2 g) cajun seasoning

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 tsp (4 g) vegetable oil

  • 1 tsp (4 g) kosher salt

  • 1 tsp (4 g) black pepper

  • 1 bottle of Vatsana's Seafood Hot Sauce

Let's begin the adventure:

  1. Cook the quinoa in advance (takes about 15-20 minutes) and cut the shallots and kale.

  2. Cut off a 4-oz piece of salmon and chop in a food processor. This will help hold the patties together. Transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Dice the remaining salmon, then transfer to the large bowl.

  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add oil and sauté the shallots and kale. Cook until wilted and tender, about 5 minutes.

  5. Transfer to the large bowl with salmon, and then add the cooked quinoa, Dijon mustard, cajun seasoning, beaten egg, salt, and pepper. Mix, then form into 5 patties, about 1/2 cup each. Don't worry if the patties don't stick together well; they'll look better as they cook.

  6. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat with oil, then add as many salmon patties as will fit without them touching each other. Cook each side for about 4 minutes.

  7. Serve over salad or quinoa, and add Vatsana's Seafood Hot Sauce to taste.

Voila! Eat your healthy salmon quinoa patties and don't forget to Spread Joy!
