4. Set the salmon cakes aside.

For Dressing:
(feeling lazy? Just serve as-is or put drops of ketchup)
1. Heat up the pan, stir fry garlic, onion using olive oil until fragrance.
2. Pour in the tomato puree, bring to boil. Add a bit of water.
3. Add a dash of herbs (optional).
4. When the sauce is thickened, your dressing is done.
Note: You may add salt or sugar to the puree according to your liking.

For Sauté Veggie:
(or replace with chips :))
1. Heat up the pan, pour some olive oil & stir fry garlic till fragrance.
2. Add in the carrots & French beans, stir fry for about a min then add some cold water. Add a pinch of salt & Lee and Perrin's sauce (optional).
3. Continue stirring for about 1 min before turning off the stove.

To Serve:
Place the salmon fish cake on the plate, scoops few spoonful of dressing on top and sauté veggies on the side. Bon Appetite!

Useful Tips!
1. Use butter instead of oil if you like a richer taste.
2. Coat the patty with bread crumb (after flour) if you like a really crunchy coating.
3. The veggie only requires short cooking time so it remains green & crunchy.
