On a lined baking sheet place salmon pieces skin side down, or add oil to the pan if using skinless salmon. Season salmon with salt and pepper, a little oil, and bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes or until salmon is cooked. Try not to overcook the salmon, check it at 8 minutes and use a food thermometer. Allow salmon to cool and break it up into a bowl.
Cook 1/2 cup of dried quinoa according to package or use 1 cup of pre-cooked quinoa.
Heat a non stick skillet over medium high heat with 1 tbsp of oil.
Combine all ingredients for salmon quinoa cakes and form into 4 even size patties. Fry on each side for a few minutes till a nice crust forms.
For the salsa, combine all ingredients and taste for seasoning.
Serve salmon cakes with the salsa on top or have some mixed greens on the bottom.
Canned Pink Salmon or Tuna works well with the recipe as well. Just be sure to drain well.
