How to Cook Salmon Cakes Made in a Bare Bones Fixer Upper Investment Property Kitchen

How to Cook Crab & Scallop Cakes with Horseradish Cream Sauce - CookingWithKimberly.comWhen you’re tired of those salmon or tuna sandwiches and need something a little bit different when you’re living in and repairing a fixer upper investment property, have no fear! I have an idea for you!

I know, you may not have a refrigerator because the electricity may not have been upgraded yet, right? That’s often the case.

That’s okay too, you won’t even need an egg for cooking these…You’ll see!

Grab your can of salmon (or tuna or crab meat), drain off the liquid and put into a bowl or baking dish to mix in.

Since you may not have a large variety of seasonings available, I’ll keep it simple: pepper, cayenne pepper or red chili flakes, garlic powder.

Okay, I’m sure you still have a slice or 2 of bread left – so, take one and break it into tiny, tiny pieces to mix with the salmon.

We always have some corn meal, not only for cooking in this bare bones kitchen, but it’s an environmentally safe way to rid your investment property of any ant problems. LOL…

So, use about 1 tsp cornmeal.

Now what? I’ll bet you’re worrying because you can’t see how to keep the cakes together in the pan without them falling apart. I’ve got ya covered.

I know you probably have a small bag of flour – if not, go grab one, even from the local convenience store or dollar store.

In a cup, mix 1 tbsp white flour with 1-2 tbsp water with a fork until there are no lumps. Then, pour it in your mixture…I know you’re scared that will wreck it…it won’t!

Now mix the whole thing together. The water will be absorbed by the bread, corn meal and white flour and keep your salmon cakes together in the pan that you’ve been warming up with about 1 tbsp olive oil or spray it with non-stick cooking spray right before placing your beautiful salmon cakes in the pan.

Your electric skillet should have a temperature dial – keep it around 250-300 degrees. Or on a single burner in a stainless steel frying pan, cook the salmon cakes on medium or medium-high heat, depending upon how hot your burner gets. Ours doesn’t get that hot, so high would be essential to brown the cakes.

Now, brown the cakes on both sides, being sure to only turn once – meaning make sure the 1st side is brown on the bottom before you turn them gently with a flipper.

Serve on a bed of freshly washed lettuce or some beautiful pickled beets, like we had for lunch today.

Other Ideas:
My family loves their soul food, and you won’t believe how they eat their fish cakes – with syrup on them! It’s the first time I’ve experienced that one today! Hmmm…strange Southerners…LOL…

So, you see, it’s easy to make a gourmet tasting and looking meal out of a bare bones kitchen in your real estate investment property!

It’s like cooking while camping, isn’t it? LOL…

Stay tuned for more creative recipes that will keep you out of the fast food drive thrus while living and repairing your fixer upper house!
