Hi everyone! This week has gone by so fast! I meant to get this post up yesterday...which obviously didn't happen. This morning I got my eyes dilated...ugh...and I could hardly see afterwards...let alone type. Someone remind me not to get my eyes dilated when it's nice and sunny outside...I wore my sunglasses for 2/3 of the day!
All right, now where was I???
Oh yes...this week's meatless entree. ;-) You might think your kids would turn their noses up at salmon patties, but they're really just dressed up fish sticks to them. They taste like fish, are lightly breaded, amd they're nice and crunchy too. Grownups can eat 'em with the lemon-dill sauce, and kids can smother 'em in ketchup. Everyone's happy!
If you are pressed for time, feel free to substitute one 15.5 ounce can of pink salmon for the fresh salmon. You'll find it in the same aisle as the tuna fish at the grocery store.
