Katniss is a skilled hunter/gatherer. In fact, before being taken from her home to compete in the games, she is the main breadwinner for family.
You can be a hunter/gatherer too! Just head into your pantry…this recipe uses a lot of pantry staples! Okay, I might be reaching a little here. But seriously. These are simple to put together but are very impressive. Like Katniss, these delicious patties are spicy and complex. Whip some up for a light lunch or dinner.
The Hunger Games Tribute: Fish for Katniss

2 14.75 oz can of salmon (I prefer sockeye)
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
2 green onion
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 Tablespoon hot sauce (I used Franks)
juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (add more if you like it spicy!)
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Slaw
1 12 oz bag of broccoli slaw (you can find this by the bagged salads in the market)
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup plain, fat free greek yogurt
1/4 cup low fat mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt

Step by step
For Salmon Cakes
- Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Spray lightly with cooking spray (I used my olive oil sprayer).
- Combine the salmon, egg, panko, bell pepper, onion, lemon and seasonings.
- Form into six patties.
- Fry the salmon cakes for a few minutes on each side, until a nice, golden crust forms.
For the Slaw
- Whisk together the yogurt, mayo, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
- Fold in the broccoli slaw and bell pepper.
- Once well combined, refridgerate for at least 20 minutes to let the flavors develop.
- Top about a cup of the slaw with two hot salmon cakes.
- Serve with lemon for squeezing.
