What's for Dinner? Wednesday


We don't know about you, but we can't believe it is already Wednesday! This week is flying by.  With time moving so fast, it's a good thing our dinner tonight will take less than 10 minutes to make.  Tonight's "What's for dinner? Wednesday" meal is Super Quick Salmon Patties over Salad.  Have picky eaters? If they are fans of Sponge Bob, tell them you made Krabby Patties.  When they wonder how you found the secret recipe, say it was in Mr. Krab's House under his mattress. Alright, let's get to business!

Ingredients to serve two
1 can (7 oz) of pink salmon 
1 egg
1/2 cup of whole wheat crackers crushed
2 scallions diced
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbsp peanut oil
4 cups of greens (spinach or mixed)

The Recipe (not really from under Mr. Krab's mattress...and thank goodness because it might be all wet!):

Step One: Grab a bowl, open your can of salmon, and crush up your whole wheat crackers.  Throw the salmon, crackers, egg (crack it first, but you knew that!), scallions, Old Bay, and red pepper flakes into the bowl.

Step Two: Form your master mix into 2 -4 salmon or "Krabby" patties, place a nonstick skillet on a burner, and fire up your stove top to a medium heat setting.  Add your 2 tbsp of peanut (or other favorite) oil.

Step Three:  Place your patties on your pan and cook them for 3 minutes on each side or until they have a nice golden color on the outside.  Once you've achieved this, take the patties off the stove and remove any excess oil with a paper towel.  

Step Four: Arrange your patties on a bed of spinach or mixed greens.  Feel free to toss the greens with a light dressing.  Lately, we've really enjoyed apple cider vinegar as a dressing (just make sure you mix it well first).

Step Five: Serve your dinner.  You decide if you're serving Krabby or Salmon patties ;)
