This not only sounds really good, it is good! I have not had salmon patties (cakes) in many years, made these on 11 Aug 2017, outstanding. This can be an appetizer, or for me, a main dish with a side vegetable.

Instructions
  1. For the salmon, you can use a 500 gram fillet, use 4-5 smaller fillets, use leftover cooked salmon, or even canned salmon, well drained and the approximate weight stated. The salmon has to be cooked and flaked, you can bake or steam the fillets, up to you. Season with garlic salt and black pepper before cooking, if baking, brush with olive oil as well. Let the salmon cool to room temperature. Then flake the salmon with two forks and remove and discard the skin and any bones, depending on the cut you use.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat a tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of butter and the onion and bell pepper. Cook until softened and starting to turn golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes then remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, and the salmon, bread crumbs, eggs, mayo, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, and parsley. Stir to combine.
  4. Add the onion and bell pepper, and mix that in then form into 13-14 patties. You can use either large tablespoons of the mixture or use an ice cream scoop. Flatten the portion out and form into about 1/2 inch thick patties.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a large non stick skillet over medium heat and once butter is done sizzling, add half of the salmon cakes and fry for 3 to 4 min per side or until golden brown. If salmon cakes brown too quickly, reduce heat. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Add remaining oil and butter and repeat cooking remaining salmon cakes.
  6. Serve with a tartar sauce or dipping sauces of your preference.
Recipe Notes

Four 140 gram fillets is 96 Baht each and is 560 grams. For 4 servings, this is about $2.82 per serving. High cost for Thailand, should be much less in the US or where fresh or even canned salmon is available. Great flavor and would be great for visiting friends and family.

  1. Toast the bread, spread mayo on one side of each slice. Layer tomato slices on one slice, top with some red onion slice rings.
  2. Top with sardines that are split in half lengthwise. Season with some white pepper, top with the other slice of bread.
  3. Enjoy. (And that is a cracking great photo as well, thank you Samantha!)
Recipe Notes

If using tinned sardines in olive oil, figure about 59 Baht/tin/2 sandwiches. This would cost about 87 Baht per sandwich, reasonable and healthy.

Variants: As with any sandwich, use your imagination. Open faced or closed, substitute olive oil for mayo, substitute mustard for mayo, and spicy mustard even better! Add veggies you like.

Shortcut: Sardines.

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C.
  2. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Remove 2 1/2 tablespoons and reserve that, pour the rest of the butter into a baking dish along with 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, mix and spread out.
  3. Pour the 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter back into the sauce pan, add the garlic and saute on low heat for about 1 minute. Add 3 tablespoons of the lemon juice, remove from heat.
  4. Place the fish in the baking dish, and season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Pour the lemon butter mixture on the fish and top with fresh parsley.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, fish should just be starting to get golden brown and should flake easily with a fork. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Tilapia is low cost, if getting the fish from a open market, the seller will fillet for you for free most times. Tilapia can also be caught on rod and reel in many ponds, making the meal essentially free.

  2. When rice is cooked, mix in half of the tuna as well as the ginger powder, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds. Set aside.
  3. Fry the egg to your liking.
  4. After the egg is cooked, place the rice in a bowl, place the diced avocado on the side of the rice, and the rest of the tuna on another side, and top with the fried egg. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

An average can of tuna will cost about 44 Baht. For one serving this is about $1.29 for the serving. If you cook fresh tuna yourself, figure 68 Baht for a tuna from Tesco, easily makes 2 to 2 1/2 cups of tuna, then your cost for the tuna for this recipe, 1/2 cup, is 50 cents. Great savings and less waste. This is listed as low cost as fresh whole tuna is easy to get.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. For the fish, any boneless and skinless whitefish would work. Cut into bite size pieces. Pangasius would be ideal, but to change this up, go with 500 grams of pangasius and 250 grams of salmon OR even better yet, go with 400 grams of pangasius, 250 grams of salmon, and 100 grams of peeled, deveined and tail removed medium or large shrimp.
  2. If you live in a country where fresh fennel is sold, use 1 small bulb of fresh fennel in place of the celery.
  3. First, make the filling: In a large, deep-sided saute pan or Dutch oven, heat the butter over low-medium heat. Add the potatoes (can be dice with skin on or skin off), celery and onion, and stir to coat the vegetables with the butter. Cover the pan, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are just tender and the other vegetables are translucent.
  4. Pour in the wine, and scrape up any stuck bits from the pan. Season with red pepper flakes, thyme, salt and black pepper.
  5. Mix in the fish; it should begin to cook instantly from the heat in the pan. When the fish is half cooked, sprinkle on the flour, and stir to incorporate it. The fish and vegetables should get a bit clumpy as the flour cooks. This will take just a minute or two. When the flour is all incorporated (and no longer white), pour in the milk, and stir well. The sauce will begin to thicken as you bring it to a simmer.
  6. When the fish sauce is thickened (like a nice white sauce), remove the pan from the heat, set aside.
  7. Preheat your oven to 250 C. Get out a deep pie dish or 7x11 baking dish.
  8. Transfer the fish and vegetable filling to a deep pie dish or small casserole dish. If your filling has been refrigerated, bring it to room temperature before adding the crust. Unroll the pie crust, and stretch it over the edges of the dish. Press the crust against the sides of pie dish, so there is a nice overhang. Trim off any extra. Make a few slits in the crust and brush with the egg and water mixture.
  9. Set the pie on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes, or until the crust is nicely browned. Remove from the oven, and set aside for 10 minutes to let the set up. Cut and serve.
Recipe Notes

This pricing is based on using just pangasius, this fish would cost about 80 Baht for 750 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 59 cents per serving.

I think putting the fish and sauce into small serving dishes and topping each with the pie crust would work very well, this is what I intend to do when I make this.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 220 C. When the oven is hot, heat a small Pyrex serving dish, the 1 1/4 cup size dish in the oven for 5 minutes.
  2. For the sardines, use a tin of sardines in olive oil, Ayam brand is the only one I found with oil and is highly recommended. OR use 2-3 pieces of sardines from a homemade batch of sardines. Place the sardines in another small bowl and use a spoon and just break the sardines into chunks. Add the shallot, garlic, and parsley and mix together, season with black pepper if desired.
  3. Remove the dish from the oven, add the sardine mixture to the heated dish and return the dish to the oven for 5-6 minutes.
  4. Remove the dish from the oven, crack two eggs into a bowl, and slide them into the heated dish, season with salt and pepper to your liking, return the dish to the oven for another 7 minutes or until the whites are set. Remove the dish and place on the counter and cover with a lid for 5 minutes (the eggs will continue to cook, and it needs to cool, can actually let it sit for 10 minutes and you will have hot sardines and eggs).
  5. Serve with toast for a good breakfast or with a salad for a dinner.
Recipe Notes

If using tinned sardines, 1 tin per serving at 59 Baht, this is about $1.74 per serving. If making sardines at home, the cost will only be slightly less due to the cost of the olive oil needed. Not a inexpensive meal but certainly healthy.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to grill/broil, if using a counter top oven, that would be the top coil, on a medium high heat, 180 to 200 C.
  2. Place butter in a oven proof pan, cast iron would be ideal, or a regular pan and heat the butter over medium heat, stirring continuously for about 3 minutes, or until the foam settles, then the butter will change in color to a golden brown. Add the honey, lemon juice, and garlic, stir to combine and cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  3. Pour half of the butter to a dish and set aside. Then add the salmon to the pan and sear one side, if one side has skin, then sear that side for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Now at this point, if you have a oven proof pan, flip each fillet and place the pan in the oven to broil for another 6 minutes, OR, if you do not have an oven proof pan, flip and place each fillet in a preheated baking dish and pour the liquid from the pan into the baking dish as well, then broil for 6 minutes.
  5. To serve, season fillets with salt to taste, drizzle the reserved brown butter over each fillet and serve with steamed vegetables, rice, and a salad.
Recipe Notes

For 69 Baht per fillet, this is about $2.03 per serving. High cost but ok for a once in a while meal.

On the first sheet, lay down the carrot sticks to make a layer about 2 sticks deep and about 6 inches across, on top of the carrots place the bell pepper cross way. On one end of the carrots place the broccoli, and on the other end, place the snow peas. Drizzle with a little olive oil and salt and pepper to taste and fold the foil over the veggys to make a sealed packet. set that packet of to one side of the next sheet of foil.
  4. Drizzle some olive oil on the second sheet. Remove the salmon from the marinade and shake off excess and place on the olive oil on the foil.
