Oven Baked Salmon Patties

Salmon patties are one of my favourites. When we were in SriLanka we had the same with fresh tuna. My mum made them  small like the size of a plum. Coated the same way. I did the same here for the salmon. When you dip patties in eggs its really thin and always breakable and also looks bad too. But when you dip the patties in flour and water mix it helps to hold the shape and also give s a nice crust. This nice crunchy patties tastes better too.

The patties can be cooked in several ways. I prefer to use oven when I need a rest after. Deep fried patties are the best in taste. They are more crunchier too. You can pan fry them too. What ever the way you prefer it tastes nice and look nicer too. When you use panko crumbs it gives the nice crunch and a look to the patties. Serve them hot with a side salad or steamed fresh veggies.

Bon Appetit!

Salmon En Croute (Simple Meal)

Salmon is rich in omega3  fatty acids and also proteins. Salmon can be cooked in different ways. Its a healthy option for quick and easy meal. Its has so many health benefits. Try cooking salmon in different ways.

I love pastry so this meal gives the crunchy crust out side while you get the flavourful middle. Adding spinach in to the salmon with creme fraiche gives a creamier taste to the salmon. When you serve a side salad too it becomes a full meal.
