One of my goals for the New Year was to discover and try out a number of healthy recipes. One of the recipes I found was an old Weight Watchers recipe for Salmon Cakes with Dill Tartar Sauce. Not only was the recipe tasty but it was made with items that I commonly have in my pantry.
¼ cup plus 6 Tbsp non-fat mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish
l tsp. plus 3 Tbsp. chopped dill
1 tsp. Lemon zest
1 tsp. Fresh lemon juice
1 (14.5oz.) can salmon, drained
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
3 Tbsp. plus ¼ cup breadcrumbs
3 Tbsp. chopped onion
Prepare the dill tartar sauce first by combining the mayonnaise, relish, 2 tsp. of dill, the lemon zest and the lemon juice in a small bowl. Cover and chill until ready to use.
Next prepare the salmon cakes. Mash the salmon in a small bowl, add 6 Tbsp. of mayonnaise, the celery, 3 Tbsp. of breadcrumbs, the onion and 3 Tbsp.dill. Shape into 4 patties and cover and refrigerate for one hour.
Place the remaining 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs on a sheet of wax paper. Dredge the patties in the crumbs. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet, then add the patties. Cook until crisp and golden, about 5 minutes on each side. Serve with the dill tartar sauce.
Not only is this one of the more healthy recipes but when you mash up the salmon bones, which are soft and edible sewing of canned salmon has more calcium than a glass of milk. simply mash up the bones with the salmon and other ingredients.
