This dish is simple to prepare and offers plenty of protein. Use oat bran instead of flour to add soluble fiber to your meal. Make extra to store in your fridge for a quick snack. I love salmon patties with a salad, rice or sweet potatoes. It’s also super delicious with a little unsweetened applesauce. Yummy!
One 7.5 oz can red salmon, drained
¼ cup diced onion
¼ cup diced red bell pepper
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup oat bran
1 tsp. olive oil
1. In a medium bowl, drain salmon and remove extra fatty skin, mash with fork.
2. Add onion, parsley, pepper, egg and oat bran.
3. Mix well.
4. Shape into 4-inch patties.
5. In medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
6. Cook patties until brown, 3 minutes per side.
Health Benefits: Low in saturated fat and calories with an exceptional nutritional value found in very few foods. Chock-full of omega-3 fatty acids and high in protein, salmon has anti-inflammatory benefits that help to protect the heart and helps maintain the integrity of our immune and circulatory systems. The oat bran adds soluble fiber to your meal that helps to lower cholesterol while the red bell pepper is full of vitamins A and C.
Try to eat cold-water fish, such as salmon, mackerel or herring at least twice a week for the best health benefits.
