Chef's Tip

If you refrigerate the salmon mixture for about 10 minutes before forming the cakes, the cakes will hold together better.

Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the salmon cake mixture

  • Peel the onion; thinly slice half [¾ cup] for the salad. Finely chop enough of the remaining onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Crack the egg into a small bowl. Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended.
  • Pat the salmon burgers dry with a paper towel. Crumble the burgers into a medium bowl.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; set aside half the leaves for the salad. Coarsely chop the remaining leaves.
To the bowl with the salmon, add the chopped onion, chopped parsley, and mustard and season generously with salt and pepper. Add the egg 1 tablespoon at a time and mix gently until the mixture holds together but is not too wet. Let stand while you prepare the salad, or cover and refrigerate until ready to cook (see Chef’s Tip).

2

Make the celery 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 half into wedges for garnish. [Zest both lemons; juice 1 lemon and cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
In a medium bowl, toss together the celery, radishes, sliced onion, remaining parsley leaves, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3

Shape and cook the salmon cakes

Using wet hands, form the salmon 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 salmon cakes and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Serve

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