Who Loves Salmon?
Ever have Salmon Patties as a kid? I can remember growing up and mom making these “fish cakes” along with mac n cheese on Good Fridays! My sister and I begged her not to make them and wanted good ol fish sticks! haha However, glad mom made us have them at least once a month.
Funny how our taste buds change as we get older! Or maybe we just learn & accept to be more open mind to try new things. Either way, I totally love Salmon cakes now and would love to share a new greek style version with you. Remember, eating healthy isn’t boring or tasteless, you just need to learn how to use your spices and get creative.
Easy & Quick Preparation
During the week days for dinner, the quicker to make the better. All ingredients gets thrown together in one bowl. Stir. Mix. Mold and sauté.
Ok, sounds gross, but there are a few great brands of canned Salmon. Whole Foods, Fresh Market….Local markets. You buy canned tuna, right? I have used both, canned for a quick mid-week dinner and fresh fillet. Yes, the fresh Salmon fillet tastes fresher but honestly…the canned tasted pretty darn amazing too. Use whats best for the moment! Bottom line you are getting in a super healthy clean meal that tastes Diva-lish
If you use canned salmon, be sure to drain, and then rinse with water and drain again.
If using a fresh fillet, bake and chop. Do not use food processor. The final cake turns out much better.
