When I was growing up, these were a common staple for a dinner. Here is Thailand, the large cans of salmon are very high priced, so I will work this up with frozen salmon that I steam and will come up with a cost per serving when I make this.

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.

I was recently in Phuket and had a very nice lunch near the Ao Por Marina, Fisherman's Pie. This was very good, salmon chunks and shrimp in a cheese sauce topped with more cheese. This is a filling meal. Make sure you remove the tails of the shrimp, unlike the restaurant I visited. This was baked in a bowl and served, I used a glass pie dish, my comments below, recipe slightly modified on my findings.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Put the fish chunks and shrimp in a baking dish, set aside. (I used a glass pie dish.)
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium low heat. Whisk in flour, and stir until the mixture becomes paste like and light golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes.
  3. Gradually whisk warm milk into the flour mixture and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk until the sauce is thick and smooth, about 5 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup of white Cheddar cheese, then mix onion, salt and pepper, and garlic into the sauce. If sauce is too thick, stir in more warm milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  4. Pour sauce over the fish and shrimp in the baking dish.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Then sprinkle with the remaining 2 cups cheese. Continue baking until fish is easily flaked with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes more and the cheese should be a nice golden brown. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, serve with a green salad for a great meal.
Recipe Notes

For starters, this is not a $1 dollar meal. The salmon price is what I know from the Tesco website, I have not bought salmon here in Thailand yet.

Tesco has salmon for 1 piece of 250 grams for 155 Baht, this is 310 Baht for 500 grams for the recipe, 250 grams of shrimp would cost about 50 Baht in Tesco, if you buy inĀ  local market, you can get for less. The cheese will run about 180 Baht for a 200 gram block, you would need 1 1/2 of these. This comes out to about $3 per serving for 6 people. If you use white fish in place of salmon, and buy shrimp from a local market, you can reduce this to less than half. Overall, the meal is delicious and would be great for visiting family or friends, as written, not really a regular meal to put in the planner.

This is a good fair value meal using whitefish.

Variations would include adding scallops, oyster meat (cook the oysters first), even fresh squid cut into rings, but these will add to the cost of the meal. Also keep in mind, you may need to increase the sauce as well.
