Mother’s Day Dinner

I made these salmon patties along with some brown rice and steamed broccoli!  It was great!

Sweet and Spicy Salmon Burgers

Source: Woman’s Day (4 servings)


1⁄ 4 cup lime juice (grate zest first)

1 tablespoon less-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon sugar

1⁄ 4 teaspoon crushed red pepper


1⁄ 2 red bell pepper, cut up

1⁄ 3 cup packed fresh cilantro

1 slice peeled ginger, 1⁄2 in. thick

1 clove garlic

2 teaspoons red curry paste (see Tip)

1 teaspoon grated lime zest

1 teaspoon sugar

11⁄ 2 lbs. skinless salmon, halibut, tilapia or flounder fillets, cut in 11⁄2-in. chunks

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1. Sauce: Mix ingredients in a small bowl. (You can do this first, or while fish is cooking.)

2. Burgers: Put bell pepper, cilantro, ginger, garlic, curry paste, lime zest and sugar in a food processor and pulse until blended. Add fish and pulse until just blended.

3. Shape level 1⁄4-cupfuls fish mixture into twelve 3-in. patties. (At this point the fish burgers may be loosely covered and refrigerated for up to 4 hours.)

4. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the fish burgers and cook about 1 minute on each side, until just cooked through. Drain on paper towels. Cook remaining fish burgers. Serve with sauce.

Tip: You can find red curry paste in the Asian foods or spice section of your market. Occasionally it contains shrimp paste, so be sure to check the ingredients list if you have a shellfish allergy. Refrigerate jar of red curry paste after opening.
