Made with cooked fresh salmon (broken up), Cabot Lowfat Greek Yogurt, Panko breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, and a few seasonings of your choice (such as salt, black pepper, chopped capers, green onions, or fresh basil), these salmon cakes come together quickly and are a great way to include a different source of protein in your diet!
For two servings, mix the cooked salmon, yogurt, breadcrumbs, mustard, and seasonings together in a medium bowl. Form into four patties and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Heat 1 tablespoon Cabot Salted Butter in a skillet over medium heat until completely melted and very hot, but not bubbling. Add salmon cakes and cook for about 4 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned.
