Crispy Salmon and Orzo Cakes
This is a great use of the leftovers from One Pan Roasted Salmon with Orzo.
2 cups leftover orzo from One Pan Roasted Salmon with Orzo
1 cup flaked, cooked salmon
½ cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
In a large bowl, combine the orzo, salmon, egg, breadcrumbs and mayonnaise and mix to combine. Form the mixture into 4 large or 8 small patties and place on a plate. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes, up to overnight.
In a large nonstick pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the patties and cook until crisp on the outside and warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain before serving.
