last night's dinner

quick, easy, full of omega 3's...and JD loved it.

salmon cakes.
a couple tbsps olive oil
1 stalk of celery
a little bit of an onion (about a 3rd is what I used)
1/2-3/4 cup oatmeal
1 egg
2 6oz. cans of trader joe's wild salmon (or any kind...but tj's is salt free and really good/cheap)
a spoonful or two of mayo
a couple tbsp of fresh or dried parsley
salt & pepper to taste

preheat oven to 450.  saute chopped celery and onion in oo (maybe add some garlic...i didn't but will next time) for a couple of minutes.  mix up the rest of the above ingredients...add sauted celery/onion last.  make little cakes (this makes 8 medium sized ones) with your hands.  if you a lot of time...brown the cakes in the same pan with a little bit more oo for a couple minutes.  i just baked them on a greased cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes.  mix up the below sauce in a bowl.  serve over salad or however you want with lemon wedges and lots of sauce drizzled on top.  this fed us for one meal with enough leftovers for one of us to have it for lunch but we eat a lot.  enjoy!

yummy sauce.
a couple tablespoons of plain yogurt
a couple tablespoons of mayo
fresh or dried dill
1/2 of a lemon worth of juice

**note: you could make this gluten free by substituting oatmeal with quinoa.  you could also sub oatmeal with breadcrumbs.

recipe inspired and changed around from one i found on
