STORY BEHIND THE DISH
I love salmon & when I was introduced to salmon patties at a friends BBQ I fell in love even more. At the time I ate the patty without the bun over some grilled veggies & thought that this could be something I could make in so many different ways. I basically opened up the pantry one day & started putting things together to make a last minute salmon patty creation. It turned out better than I thought so now this dish is something I make a lot. It is easy, cheap, healthy, & low in calories.
There are so many different ways the salmon patty can be used. Since this is an Asian inspired dish, other things that would pair well are cashews, peas, carrots, bean sprouts, green onions & if you don't have brown rice you can easily replace it with Jasmine or white rice. I use the Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce with the purple label, but Asian flavored sauce would work as well. I also use Costco frozen Salmon Patties, I think they are great & cheaper than most stores.
