Unfortunately, Big B's Delicious Orchards will be discontinuing Apple Cider Vinegar so they can focus on what they do best: juice & cider. We're very sad to see this item go! We still have inventory available.

Quinoa Honey Smoked Salmon Cakes adapted from Pallet Jack Cowboy
*local option available
Combine quinoa and water in a small saucepan. Cook according to package directions. Set aside to cool slightly.
Mix to combine quinoa, salmon, green onions, parsley, mayonnaise, mustard, eggs, lemon juice, and paprika. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Form into 12-13 patties, about 1/4 cup each.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add a few tablespoons of oil and when hot add the salmon patties. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and crispy. Reduce heat if patties brown too fast. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining patties, adding more oil to the pan as needed. Before serving, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice over the patties.
