Yummy Dinner!!

Hi all!!
Been a busy day here, we got firewood from my neighbor.
She had a tree cut down & we went over & cut it up some more, than threw it over the fence.
Did 2 loads of laundry & hung them outside.
Harley got a bath too.
Than we both took showers & went to Big Lot's, looking for a spatula. Mine broke:( I want a solid metal one this time!
Than made these for dinner & my DH is not a salmon eater & he ate 2!! They are OMGosh good!!
Fresh Salmon Cakes
2 cloves garlic; minced
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 dashes Tabasco (or 1 teaspoon Old Bay)
1 egg yolk (or egg white)
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons real mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (less if table salt)
fresh ground pepper to taste
2/3 cup coarse white bread crumbs
1 pound fresh salmon 1/2 cup Panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
2 or 3 tablespoons olive oil
In a small bowl, combine garlic, onion, Tabasco, egg, parsley, mayonnaise, salt and pepper; set aside. Remove skin and bones from salmon and cut into small cubes (about 1/2-inch); place in a medium bowl and gently stir in bread crumbs. Gently fold egg mixture into salmon and bread and refrigerate at least 2 hours before shaping into 4 patties. Carefully coat the outside of each patty with Panko crumbs. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until very hot and add salmon cakes. Fry the cakes until brown, about 4 minutes on each side turning only once. Serve with lemon wedges or your favorite tarter sauce. *May substitute cracker crumbs or bread crumbs for the Panko

This was posted with it but didn't make it no cucumber. Next time!! Cucumber Dill Sauce:
1 cucumber; unpeeled
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon dill (if fresh use 1 tablespoon)
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Cut cucumber in half and scoop out the seeds. Shred cucumber finely along with the peel and combine with remaining ingredients. Chill to combine flavors. Serve with your favorite grilled or baked fish. Also good with salmon patties or crab cakes.
