Salmon cakes & Corn Salsa

My favorite kind of cooking lately too is very non-involved, as I just don't have the energy for much more that than :) This one was perfect! So quick and easy and it was just bursting with flavor!

Salmon Cakes:
1 can salmon, drained well
1 green onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
1 tbsp finely chopped red pepper
1 egg
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup fine bread crumbs, plus 1/4 cup for dredging
2 tbsp olive oil for pan-frying

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until well combined. Form round patties, 2 inches in diameter. Spread remaining bread crumbs on a plate. Coat patties in crumbs, pressing to form firm, well-coated cakes.

Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Pan-fry cakes about 3-4 minutes per side or until lightly browned and crisp.

Sweet Corn & Tomato Salsa:

Salmon cakes & Corn and tomato salad

2 cobs of corn
1-1/2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
2 green onions, finely sliced
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp chili powder
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil

Cook corn in large pot of boiling water. Run knife down sides of cobs to remove corn. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
