I hate to cook. I am not great at it, but watch so many cooking shows that I can make something in the spur of the moment. I cook out of shear necessity and near poverty. Today, I really wanted to go out to lunch, but there was no money for it (we are a cash only family). So I made chicken sandwiches for the kids. I decided to make Salmon cakes for me . . . and hubby too.
No Love Salmon Cakes:
2 packages of Chicken of the Sea Pink Salmon
1/4 c. of a finely chopped onions
1 small, minced garlic clove
3/4 c. bread crumbs (I made my own from left over pizza dough [like panko] that I baked and processed: kept in fridge)
1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp of tarragon
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat skillet. Add veggie oil or spray with non stick pan. Combine all in bowl. Form ball. Kinda wet. Gently place in hot skillet. Brown both sides for about 4-5 minutes each side until golden.
Do you like cooking? If so, what do you keep in your pantry to make at the spur of the moment?
