It has been some time since I've made a main dish with fish, so I was thinking of doing some salmon.
Then I found a really old can of halibut in my pantry and decided to make Ellie Krieger's salmon cakes using the canned halibut.
According to my archives it has been awhile since I've made these patties and that time I used a canned of smoked halibut.
This time, the halibut wasn't smoked so I tried the creamy ginger-sesame sauce which is in her "The Food You Crave" cookbook (same page as the salmon cakes).
She says that the sauce "makes a fantastic dip for raw vegetables, especially snow peas."
So, instead of raw, I served steamed asparagus and carrots.
The sauce is really easy to put together, I think the thing that took the longest was draining the liquid from the yogurt for the sauce.
NOTES: The combination of ginger, shoyu & sesame oil matched these patties and veggies perfectly. I think this sauce would be perfect on an Asian-type of salad too, creamy without all the calories. The serving size for the sauce is 1.5 tablespoons but I only used 1 tablespoon. I would definitely make this again.
Since I only made half the recipe of the patties & sauce, I had 6 patties. We ate 4 for dinner and with the other 2, we had halibut sandwiches for breakfast...delicious.
