Good Eats

So I have been trying to eat more fish what with the pregnancy and all since it has such a great impact on fetal development, well, and that it is also good for mommies and daddies and everyone and probably I should continue the trend post-partum since fish is just chock full o’ good things even tho you have to obviously be careful where it comes from and what KIND of fish it is since you don’t want all the mercury….



Here is a great way to get some salmon into you without having to bother with the steaks.  It’s from a can!  It’s so easy!  Troy liked it, too!

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers


1 (16 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked

2 eggs

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons finely chopped onion

1/4 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1 pinch red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 tsp dry mustard 

2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 pinch dried basil



In a medium bowl, mix together the salmon, eggs, parsley, onion, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of basil, and red pepper flakes. Form into 6 firmly packed patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the patties, and cook for 4 minutes per side, or until nicely browned.
3. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and a pinch of basil. Use as a sauce for your patties.
