Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. miso paste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup fresh limejuice
  • 1 1/2 cups dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 (7 oz.) can salmon, drained and flaked
  • 1/3 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil

  • Methods/steps
    1. Heat the vegetable oil and sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the green onion and garlic, and cook until tender. Stir in the miso paste and sake until blended. Bring to a simmer then stir in the cream and limejuice. Return to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
    2. In a medium bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs, salmon, onion, and cilantro. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, soy sauce and water using a fork. Stir about half of this into the salmon mixture, and if it seems dry, stir in a little more until the salmon mixture will stick together in patties.
    3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Form the salmon mixture into 2-inch patties for appetizers, or 4-inch patties for a main dish. Fry patties for about 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Serve with the sauce drizzled over, or separately for dipping.
