Pour un diner léger – Faux cake de saumon aux herbes


When you have little time to cook like I had tonight, those cakes are perfect, they’re quick, light and nutritious, and quite full filling. I didn’t feel like having a piece of  salmon but was more in the mood for a more elaborated flavor and texture. You can use white fish also, and add a shrimp in the middle of the mixture when filling the molds. They are perfect for a light dinner with a green salad, I used my silicon molds, but you can use any other mini cake molds, but they’ll need to be greased or they’ll stick to the bottom of the pan. 

Ingredients for 3

  • 1/2 lb salmon
  • 1 tbs chives, chopped
  • 1 tsp dill, chopped
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbs parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbs heavy cream
  • nutmeg
  • salt and pepper


Cut salmon in cubes. In a mixer, mix all ingredients and place in a mixing bowl. Beat eggs with cream, add salt and pepper, nutmeg. Add egg mixture to salmon and mix well. Place mixture in small individual molds and cook in a 370F pre-heated oven for about 20-25 minutes. Serve with a green salad.
