    Directions

    01

    In large bowl, flake salmon with fork. Stir in bread crumbs, eggs, 3 Tbsp (45 mL) sour cream, carrot, bell pepper, dill, mustard, lemon juice, and garlic.

    02

    Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Into 8 greased or paper-lined standard-sized muffin cups, stuff salmon mixture and bake for 25 minutes, or until browned on top and cakes are set. Remove from oven and let salmon cakes rest for a couple minutes before unmoulding.

    In blender, place 1/4 cup (60 mL) sour cream, oil, 2 Tbsp (30 mL) water, vinegar, cooked beets, horseradish, lemon zest, and a couple pinches of salt and blend until smooth.
