Salmon Cutlets


Salmon is a popular food, classified as an "Oily Fish", considered to be healthy due to the fish's high protein, high Omega-3 fatty acids, and high Vitamin D content. 
The inspiration behind this recipe is my kid, Anush. He loves to eat fish so wanted to make this for him which is less spicy. This recipe can be modified to make it more spicier.
2 Atlantic Salmon fillets
1 tbsp Curry Powder
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Pepper Powder
1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
1 Egg
1/4 cup Bread Crumbs (I choose Italian whole wheat and white bread stuffing mix)
Olive Oil for pan frying

1. In a food processor add all the ingredients and coarsely grind it. Keep it aside in a bowl. Make small balls.
2. Take a skillet add 1 tsp olive oil and when the pan is medium hot, place 4 balls of the above mixture and press it a little bit to make patties. Cook them 3 mins on each side or cook until done.
3. Serve this with Ketchup.

Note: Variation to make it more spicy add extra pepper powder, red chili flakes.
