Ingredients
  • 3 7 .5-ounce cans salmon, drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 5 tablespoons tartar sauce, plus more for serving (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons minced jarred roasted red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus wedges for serving
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 cups (about 8 ounces) mixed baby greens
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix the salmon, corn, egg, 3 tablespoons each breadcrumbs and tartar sauce, the roasted red peppers, parsley, lemon zest and 3/4 teaspoon Old Bay in a bowl. Gently form into eight 3/4-inch-thick patties and freeze until just firm, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the dressing: Whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons tartar sauce, the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon water, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay, and pepper to taste in a large bowl.

Put the remaining 5 tablespoons breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Press the salmon cakes in the breadcrumbs to coat both sides. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the salmon cakes and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the cakes are heated through, 6 to 8 more minutes.

Add the greens to the bowl with the dressing and toss. Serve the salmon cakes with the salad, more tartar sauce and lemon wedges.
