One of the great benefits of eating well is making new, delicious meals. I never got anything like this from the McDonald’s drive-thru!
(based on a modified New Basics recipe from Ann Marie at Cheeseslave)
15 ounces wild Alaskan salmon (I used canned Bear and Wolf from Costco)
3/4 cups toasted bread crumbs (toast 4 slices frozen sprouted bread, pulse in food processor)
1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise (I used the recipe for mayonnaise in Nourishing Traditions – make it ahead of time to allow it to thicken)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup minced yellow bell pepper (or celery)
1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley
2 tsp grated lemon zest
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp organic Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup macadamia nut oil to start, more as needed
mayo to serve
- Mince all the veggies together in a food processor.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the salmon with 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs, along with all the other ingredients (except for the macadamia oil and the mayo to serve).
- Shape into patties. Roll the patties in the rest of the breadcrumbs.
- Heat 1/2 cup of macadamia oil in a cast iron or stainless steel skillet on medium heat. Cook the patties 3-4 minutes on each side, until brown and crispy.
- Serve with mayonnaise
Serves 4. Serve with a big salad and a glass of wine.
Notes: If you use prepared bread crumbs, read the label to make sure it is just bread crumbs (e.g., no vegetable oil or other chemicals). Don’t be afraid to make real mayonnaise; throw out that stuff with soybean oil. A panini grill is a great way to heat the leftovers. Enjoy!
