5/30: This recipe is  a cross between a latke and a seafood cake or patty.  It is also a fantastically flavorful way to utilize leftover salmon.  The egg-caper relish is really just a tricked-out über yum version of egg salad, it is not essential to the success of this dish- but it sure don’t hurt either. Looking forward to making this again and again and figuring out new flavor additions… Just off the top of my head I’m thinking there’ll be a  Tzatziki -Smoked Salmon Patty sandwich sometime soon…


  • 1 large potato, peeled and coarsely grated (about 1 cup)photo (223)
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 4 oz. smoked salmon, coarsely chopped
  • 2-3 cups cooked salmon, flaked into small shreds with a fork
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons matzah meal, panko, or dried bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • generous squirt of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup canola or safflower oil

1. Place grated potatoes in a clean cloth and squeeze out the liquid.  Place in a large bowl with the onions.  Mix in smoked salmon and flaked salmon.

2. Fold in mustard, and mayo.  Mix in matzah meal.  Sprinkle in ground pepper and fresh lemon juice.

3. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan.  Shape salmon mixture into palm sized patties, and carefully slip them into the hot oil pan-frying for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side.

4. Remove from pan and allow to drain on paper bag or paper towels

Yields approximately 8-10 patties
