Making great food doesn’t mean spending a lot. It can be tasty and beautiful to the eyes as well. I bought a can of wild salmon at Trader Joe’s last week for $3.99 and was able to make 6 beautiful cakes. Tasty, beautiful and easy: can’t ask for more!
I have always loved crab cakes but crab can get somewhat pricey. By swapping salmon for crab, you are not losing in taste and you are surely gaining in cost! The secret is seasoning. And simplicity is the key!
Onion, garlic and parsley is all you need in this area. And to make sure that those little babies are moist egg,mayo (homemade preferably) and bread crumbs will do the trick!
Make a chipotle mayo and a quick salad and you have an wonferful appetizer or even a light lunch.
