Salmon Cakes with Chia and Lemon Zest

Serves 3

• Prep time 15 Minutes
• Cook Time 8-10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 14-1/2 ounces boneless, skinless pink salmon, drained
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons lemon peel
  • 4 tablespoons, plus two teaspoons Greek nonfat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons plus an additional tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard, divided
  • 2 teaspoons white horseradish, shredded, divided, optional
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup diced red cabbage
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 cups spinach

Directions
1. Mix the salmon, lemon peel, yogurt, mustard, and  horseradish in a medium bowl using a fork. Add the celery and cabbage. Add freshly ground black pepper and salt, to taste. Mix thoroughly.

2. Spray a medium skillet (nonstick works great if you have one!) with canola oil cooking spray.  Heat for one minute.

3. Divide the salmon mixture into 6 round patties, each 1/2- inch thick. Lower the heat to low and place the patties in the pan. Cook 2 minutes per side, then flip and cook 1 minute more, or until heated through and lightly browned.
