I was on the phone with my mom a couple weeks ago, and she told me she was making Salmon Burgers for dinner. Now the hubs and I have tried Whole Foods salmon burgers once and were pretty disappointed, so I turned my nose up a bit in response, but B said she actually made these herself instead. When she explained the recipe and I heard how easy AND healthy it sounded, I said I must have it.
Here's what she emailed me and I finally gave it a try last night:
B's Salmon Burgers
15 1/2 oz. can of salmon = drain liquid, discard any skin and bones.
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 TBSP fresh chopped parsley
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste (I usually eliminate this)
Mix all ingredients together and form into 4 patties. Saute in a small amount of canola oil (I usually just use SPAM) until done.
Please note I use PAM not SPAM
Man, I love her.
Having never tried canned salmon before, I was a little scurred at the note telling me to discard the skin and bones that the can might contain.
I opened my can with much trepidation.
But gave a sigh of relief.
|See that's no so bad|
Well, there were some skin and bones, but nothing I couldn't handle.
And instead of using PAM, or SPAM, or Green Eggs and Ham, I just used the Misto and sprayed the pan with Olive Oil.
I added some baked sweet potato fries (peel, cut up, and toss in olive oil and spices and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes) and a small salad and it was a quick, easy, healthy, delish dinner for me and the hubs.
