Salmon Patties with Sugar Snap & Chive Salad

Salmon Patties with Sugar Snap & Chive Salad
Serves 1-2

Salmon is the chicken of seafood – not tuna. I find people are constantly trying to find “another salmon recipe” that jazzes up everyone’s favorite weeknight salt-water protein. Few realize how easy it is to grind and make burgers/meatballs/patties from salmon. Using your food processor and pantry create this stovetop dinner or appetizer in less than 5 minutes.

½ lb. salmon, skin off and cut into 1” cubes
¼ cup parsley leaves
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon capers
1/8 teaspoon & ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup sugar snap peas, trimmed and cut on a bias
1 bunch chives, thinly sliced
Wedge of lemon, juiced

Pulse salmon, parsley, mustard, capers and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a food processor. Divide and patty 4 ways.

In a large nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. Cook salmon patties 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown.

In a bowl toss sugar snaps with chives, ¼ teaspoon salt, chives and juice from lemon wedge. Serve with salmon patties.
