Take your canned salmon up a notch with these turmeric salmon oat cakes! I get it, eating seafood at least two times a week can be hard. That’s why I cooked up this recipe that pairs fiber-filled oats with high-protein salmon topped off with the spicy heat of healthy turmeric!

Throw these on top of a salad or eat them plain on a bed of greens to reap the benefits. This recipe makes for an easy dinner or leftovers the next day. I’m a big fan of canned salmon and get why to others it might be the least appetizing thing ever.

Turmeric is the spice that gives curry powder its color, and contains anti-inflammatory properties known to prevent disease. I’ll be honest, I don’t love turmeric on everything, but when it’s hidden in a recipe like this one but I can still reap the benefits, I’ll take it!

  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 small salmon cakes

Description

Take canned salmon up a notch with these easy turmeric oat salmon cakes! These high in protein cakes, are perfect to throw on a salad, or dip into hummus. The turmeric adds a dose of spicy heat plus numerous health benefits!


Ingredients

  • 1 can salmon (opt for boneless sockeye if possible) I like this brand
  • 1 tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 2 tbsp. your favorite hummus

Instructions

  1. Place oats in a food processor. Pulse until ground, about 10 seconds. Transfer to a bowl. Add egg, tuna, mustard, 2 teaspoons lemon rind, salt, pepper, turmeric, and garlic powder. Mix to combine.
  2. Fill a 1/3-cup dry measuring cup with salmon mixture. Invert onto work surface; gently pat into a 3/4-inch-thick patty. Repeat with remaining salmon mixture.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium. Add salmon cakes to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side, until bottoms are golden.
  4. Arrange arugula on a plate. Toss with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Place tuna cakes over arugula. Add hummus and remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Enjoy!

Notes

Don’t forget the black pepper! Black pepper helps to increase absorption of turmeric! If you don’t have oats, feel free to substitute regular flour, brown rice flour or gluten free flour.
