 If you are trying to boost your intake of omega-3 try this simple recipe and it is a great way to use convenient canned (or leftover) salmon. The tangy dill sauce provides a tart balance.

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 15 ounces canned salmon, drained, or 1 1/2 cups cooked salmon
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 3/4 cups fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs,
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Creamy Dill Sauce,
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery; cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in parsley; remove from the heat.
  3. Place salmon in a medium bowl. Flake apart with a fork; remove any bones and skin. Add egg and mustard; mix well. Add the onion mixture, breadcrumbs and pepper; mix well. Shape the mixture into 8 patties, about 2 1/2 inches wide.
  4. Heat remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in the pan over medium heat. Add 4 patties and cook until the undersides are golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a wide spatula, turn them over onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining patties.
  5. Bake the salmon cakes until golden on top and heated through, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare Creamy Dill Sauce. Serve salmon cakes with sauce and lemon wedges.

Tip: To make fresh breadcrumbs Tear the bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice makes about 1/3 cup.
