2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the seafood cake mixture

  • Working over 1 medium and 1 small bowl, crack the egg and separate the white and yolk, carefully dropping the white into the medium bowl and the yolk into the small bowl. Save the yolk for another use. [Separate both eggs; save both yolks for another use.] Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat the egg white until frothy. 
  • Peel the onion; thinly slice half. Transfer the sliced onion to a colander, rinse with cold water, and set aside for the salad. Finely chop enough of the remaining onion to measure ½ cup. [Peel and thinly slice 1 onion; finely chop enough of the remaining onion to measure 1 cup.] 
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; set aside half the leaves for the salad. Coarsely chop the remaining leaves.
  • Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel. (If using jumbo shrimp, rinse and pat dry.) Finely chop the seafood.

To the bowl with the egg white, add the chopped onion, chopped parsley, flaxseed meal, and mustard. Season generously with salt and pepper and stir until blended. Add the seafood and stir until just combined. Cover and refrigerate for about 10 minutes before shaping and cooking the seafood cakes.

While the mixture is chilling, prepare the salad. 


Make the celery-radish salad

  • Thinly slice the celery on the diagonal. 
  • Cut the radishes in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons.
  • Zest the lemon and juice half, keeping the zest and juice separate; cut the remaining half into wedges for garnish. [Zest both lemons; juice 1 lemon and cut the remaining lemon into wedges.] 

In a medium bowl, toss together the celery, radishes, as much sliced onion as you like, the remaining parsley leaves, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Shape and cook the seafood cakes

Using wet hands, form the seafood mixture into four [eight] ¾-inch-thick patties.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the patties and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.


Transfer the seafood cakes and celery-radish salad to individual plates and drizzle the cakes with half the tahini goddess dressing. Serve the remaining dressing and lemon wedges on the side.
