Here’s a suggestion I just might try from our New Yorker food blogger, Ces:
if you can’t find enough crab meat for the crabcake..you can substitute with salmon..er canned salmon..bumble bee is what i used..tastes great too!:)
I found my can of crabcakes and I got another one so we should be covered, but I think I will try doing salmon fish cakes next time. We are truly so fortunate that salmon is so abundant and far more affordable here than back in Manila. My mom and I love having Sinigang na ulo ng salmon which is so delicious. And very cheap, too! Salmon Head at Hong Kong Supermarket in Flushing is only 99 cents a lb and a head is usually a pound heavy only!
Right now Mom and I are trying to figure out if we can bring a few salmon heads home — but the question is if it can survive the long trip home without dry ice or what not. I have a few styrofoam coolers courtesy of Omaha Steaks and Tender Fillet which ship their gourmet beef cuts in these sturdy styro coolers — one of the important items on my “To do” list — find out how I can bring home some salmon heads. Strange pasalubong but with salmon such an expensive commodity back home, worth the try.
