Salmon Cakes


Emily does not like fish. Whenever I make it she'll eat a few bites but really has a hard time with it. The one thing she does like though is salmon cakes. It makes no sense to me because it's still fish, but somehow the added ingredients makes it palatable to her. In fact, she had three helpings tonight.

Here is the recipe:

One 16 oz. can salmon
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup wheat bread crumbs
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 Tbsp. grated lemon peel
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. rosemary
1/8 tsp. pepper

Mix all the ingredients together and form into patties. Add 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil to a pan and then fry on each side until golden brown.
