Scarlet (our beautiful and perfect 3 year old Granddaughter) spent the night with us last night. It was wonderful. She loved the spaghetti and garlic bread I fixed last night.
So, tonight we are having:
Salmon Cakes w/Tarragon-Chive Sauce
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 t Dijon mustard
2 t chives
1/4 t dried tarragon
1 t capers, drained and chopped
1 t olive oil
1 1/4 t black pepper
14 3/4oz canned salmon, drained
1/4 c fat-free mayo
1/4 c scallions, chopped
3 T dried bread crumbs
1/4 c dried bread crumbs
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 c mixed greens, salad
To make the sauce, combine the vinegar, mustard, chives, tarragon, capers, oil and pepper in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Preheat the broiler. Spray a small baking sheet with Pam.
To make the salmon cakes, with a fork, mash the salmon and bones in a large bowl. Add mayo, scallions, 3 T of the bread crumbs and the egg white. With wet hands, shape the mixture into 4 patties.
Put the remaining 1/4 c bread crumbs on a sheet of wax paper. Coat patties with crumbs.
Place the patties on the baking sheet. Broil 4 inches from the heat until crisp and golden, about 4 minutes on each side.
Yield: 1 patty, 1 T sauce and 1/2 c salad per serving at 6 pointsplus.
