Lightened Up Salmon Cakes
This is one of my go-to meals for when I want to make something easy, light and healthy. It is perfect. Canned salmon provides an easy (and cheap) alternative to cooking your own salmon. There is also something fun and creative about putting together patties. I love making all kind of patties: chicken, beef, lamb, salmon, whatever it may be. It is an easy way to knock some flavor into the meat. I also like to get creative and throw in all kinds of vegetables to mix it up a bit. So have it, if you want to throw in some carrots, bell peppers, etc. go ahead, have fun!
I serve these salmon patties on a fresh salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions and avocados, with some crispy roasted potatoes on the side. The dish is topped with my favorite creamy herb sauce, it makes a perfect dressing and a great dipping sauce for the potatoes. It is actually my “lighter” and kicked up version of my tzatziki recipe that I love oh so much.
