Ingredient of the Month: Salmon, Recipe #2

This is a great weeknight dinner that can be prepared in under 30 minutes. Canned Wild Alaskan salmon can be found at most grocery stores, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. Whole Foods even carries a store brand Sockeye which I used for this recipe. This is also a great way to use up leftover salmon.

14oz. canned Wild Alaskan salmon
1 egg yolk
½ red pepper, finely chopped (or ¼ ea. red and green pepper – slice the rest to serve on the side)
1 t low-sodium soy sauce (variation: teriyaki sauce)

Flake the salmon with a fork, removing any large bone pieces. Mix in peppers, egg yolk and soy sauce and combine. Shape into 3” patties. Heat skillet over medium heat, add 1 T olive oil and sauté for approximately 4 minutes per side. Serve with mustard or tartar sauce and lettuce on whole wheat buns.
