Salmon Cakes with Lemon Dill Cream

Salmon is a staple in my diet, but I find myself sometimes getting bored with the traditional season/bake method. Salmon burgers, patties and cakes are readily available at the grocery store, but often times come at a price or have some extra ingredients I could do without. One of my absolute favorite salmon burger patties is from HEB, but they have jalapeños in them which makes it too spicy to feed to the little one. I decided to come up with my own recipe so that I could control what was in it and make it desirable for everyone in the family!

Rosemary Honey Salmon with Vegetables

Salmon is one of my favorite entrees, not only because it provides essential omega- 3 fatty acids and is a quality source of protein, but also because it is super easy to prepare and cook for those busy nights! This recipe is another one of my go to “foil” prepared dinners.  The preparation is quick and the clean up is even faster – just toss the foil and you are done!  I previously shared my recipe for lemon salmon with basil, tomato and red wine vinaigrette orzo using the foil method, and I’m back to share another one! I found the original recipe here, but I made a few adjustments to cut back on sugar, use a different herb {because I love rosemary}, and add other veggies in the foil packet to make it a complete meal!

Lemon Salmon with Basil, Tomato and Red Wine Vinaigrette Orzo

Last summer, my husband and I went with my extended family on an Alaskan cruise which was incredible! And talk about amazing seafood! I have always enjoyed salmon, but since that trip, I cannot get enough of it. And, the health benefits are even more of an incentive to eat it.  The omega 3 fatty acid content (also known as a type of essential fatty acid) as well as it being a great source of lean protein are a few reasons why you should aim to include salmon in your menu rotation. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends two servings of fatty fish per week, like salmon, for the heart health benefit of Omega 3’s.  In addition, these nutrients are beneficial for brain function and have anti-inflammatory properties that play a role in prevention of other illness and disease. The body does not make omega- 3 fatty acids, so it is important that a person’s diet provides these nutrients.
