When poaching salmon, whether to serve on its own or to use as an ingredient, season your liquid well with white wine, peppercorns, celery leaves, fresh parsley and a bay leaf for greatest flavor. 1. Combine water, wine, bay leaf, peppercorns, parsley and celery leaves in a shallow 8x8" pan. Slowly bring to a boil, reduced to a simmer and add salmon steaks. Simmer until salmon is just cooked through - 7-10 minutes, depending on thickness. Remove with a slotted spatula, drain and cool slightly. Flake salmon into a bowl (do not break it up too much); discard skin and bones. 2. To the salmon add corn, shallots, red pepper, celery and cilantro. Fold together gently with a rubber spatula. 3. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard and Tabasco in a separate bowl. Fold into salmon mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Gently fold the egg, egg whites and 1/4 cup of the cracker crumbs into the salmon mixture. 4. form into 8 large or 12 medium-sized patties. Lay some cracker crumbs on a plate and coat the patties on both sides, using more crumbs as needed. Refrigerate, covered, for up to 1 hour. 5. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook salmon corncakes a few at a time until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Add more oil to skillet as needed. Serve immediately with Festival Corn Salsa alongside. Serve 8 as an entree or 12 as an appetizer.
