baked salmon cakes
2 Pound salmon
To Taste salt
To Taste ground black pepper
1/2 Small onion, diced
1 Celery, stalks
1 Bell Pepper, Red
1 Tablespoon Dill, fresh or dried
1 Teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
1/4 Teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 1/2 Tablespoon breadcrumbs
2 Large eggs
3 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
When ready to cook, set the Z Grill to 275℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place directly on the grill grate. Grill until internal temperature reaches 120℉. Remove from grill and set aside to cool.
Place the cooled salmon filets in a large bowl and break up with a fork. Add onions, celery (diced), bell pepper (diced), dill, lemon zest, salt and pepper, bread crumbs and eggs. Mix well.
Shape the salmon mixture into 6 patties, roughly 2" wide. Increase grill temperature to 375℉ and preheat lid closed for 10-15 minutes.
When the oil is hot, add the patties to the cast iron and cook in batches. Cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping once halfway through or until sides are golden brown. Enjoy!
