Although very good, fish is often served as fillet with rice and vegetables… In the long run, this can get a little boring! This is why I am suggesting you this salmon cake recipe, so that you can include fish in your menu in a different, and most of all, delicious manner.
Per serving: 401 calories / 30,3 g carbs / 14,3 g fat / 30,3 g proteins
450 g skinless salmon
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 green onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
100 ml carrots, finely grated
100 ml fresh spinach, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper
250 ml 0 % fat Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons mint, chopped
The zest of a lemon
Preheat oven to 350° F. Mix all ingredients in a robot-mixer. Leave mixture to stand in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Using a spoon, shape the salmon cakes and put them on a non-stick plate suitable for use in the oven. Depending on size, cook for 5 to 10 minutes on each side.
While the cakes are cooking, prepare the sauce by mixing all the ingredients.
I suggest that you serve them with fresh oven-baked asparagus sprinkled with lemon juice.
