Heart Salmon Cakes For A Romantic Meal#FishFriday

Salmon is rich in protein, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids making it a very nutritious choice of protein.  One should include Salmon fish in their diet at least once a fortnight. 
These Heat Salmon Cakes is a simple and delicious way to prepare fresh salmon using staple pantry ingredients. These cakes can be made for a light and delicious lunch or supper.  I have  used of fresh salmon  and  it gives a richness of  flavor to the cakes.
This goes to our event for Fish Friday Foodies our Host is  Camilla our wherein she asked us to make Seafood Dishes for a Romantic Evening.
Makes 6 - 8 depending on the size
Ingredients
400 Grams Cleaned Fresh Boneless & Skinless Salmon
3 Tablespoons Heaped Mayonnaise
A Juice of half a Lemon
2 Big Bread slices - choppered
2 Tablespoon Chopped Flat Parsley
1 Teaspoon English Mustard
2 Scallions / Spring Onion - Only Whites - finely chopped
½ Teaspoon Black Pepper powder
¼ Teaspoon Paprika powder
½ Teaspoon Chopped Chives
3 Cloves Garlic - finely chopped
½ Teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste
For the coating 

Panko Breadcrumbs as required
1 Egg - lightly beaten
Oil as required for shallow frying

Method 

Cut the salmon into small cubes and pat them dry with a kitchen towel.
In a chopper add the onions, chives, parsley, salt, paprika and pepper powder and pulse it two or three times. Now add the mayonnaise and choppered bread and pulse it till mixed once or twice. Add the salmon cubes and pulse it again for two or three times ( do not pulse it for more time or else it will form a paste ) the salmon should be in tiny cubes. 
Take this out into a bowl and add the lemon juice, mix well and refrigerate it for at least 2 hours for the flavors to develop and also at this stage it is difficult to handle. The mix will firm up in the refrigerator.
Remove from refrigerator, divide the mixture into equal balls and  shaped them into heart cakes. As you can see made some small hearts and two big ones. Roll these in bread crumbs and keep this in the freezer for 15 minutes only.

In the meantime let's get prepare for the shallow frying. Heat a non-stick pan/skillet with oil.  Beat an egg lightly add a pinch of salt.  In a plate spread the panko bread crumbs. Keep aside .

Now that we are prepared for frying. Take the cakes out from the freezer.

Dip each cake in egg. Roll it in bread crumbs and immediately place it in the frying pan. Fry on medium high heat till golden on both sides. 
Serve them topped with Creamy Italian Dressing With Mayo & Red Wine Vinegar (recipe will be posted on 14th February ) and on a bed of Tabbouleh Salad With Glass of Pink Lemonade Vodka Cocktail. 
This was a real Romantic Meal / Valentine's Day celebrated in advance. If you have such a beautiful prepared meal with candels lit up who wants to wait for 14th Feb.
 Ahh! Yes if you have not had a Romantic meal like this, then do it !! Worth the effort!!
