Salmon and Dill Burgers or Cakes

"Wow! I made these for dinner last night and they were incredible! Simple, delicious, fast and healthy. The recipe comes from Real Simple magazine (June/July 2004), and I made it as written except that after pulverizing the bread (I used whole wheat since we don't "do" white bread in my house), I just added all the other ingredients to the food processor, too. This made it extremely simple. I am sure the fish was ground up more than the recipe intended, but we liked it that way. I cooked this in an indoor George Foreman-type grill, and they took about 6-7 minutes. The magazine suggests serving this on a bun and topping the patty with traditional cole slaw and dressing, but we had them as-is with some seafood sauce (and some steamed asparagus, a salad, and a Frozen Malibu Sunshine drink -- which I also just posted the recipe for). It would work equally well with any of your favorite condiments, and I think it would be awesome over some greens with a citrus vinaigrette or ranch dressing! I plan to make these a lot!!!"

    Another addition to the permanent menu. I did do a couple of things different. I used whole grain bread, used 2 14.5oz cans of salmon (drained), and mixed all in the food processor. I also used the George Foreman, and cooked on the middle setting for 6 minutes. This made 12 patties of about 4" size. Thanks for the keeper.

    These were very outrageous and gourmet in taste!!We had some leftover salmon which I had cooked the previous night and so I thought I'd try this. It made a wonderful different dish for us. Followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't change a thing. Thanx for winner!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

My husband and I married straight out of college in July of 1992. I work as the Assistant Manager at a wine shop which allows me to drink on the job! (OK, not that much, but it's still a fun job...) Besides helping customers choose wine they will like (and also help with food and wine pairings for their menus), I also get to help with the catering end of the business, so I get to spend a fair amount of time in the kitchen making fun appetizers and beautiful food displays. I also work part-time at the fromagerie next door. So yeah - that means I eat on the job, too. :^D We live on several peaceful wooded acres on a cute little river in rural NE Wisconsin, with a cranky old-lady Burmese and whatever stray outdoor cats that have decided to adopt us on any given day. The cute puppy in the picture is Jake, our Elhew-bred English Pointer that we brought home on Easter weekend 2007. I've also got 2 painted turtles named Dennis and Fuzz, and a bunch of fish (koi and goldfish, along with the guppies & swordtails in the turtle tank). I USUALLY eat and cook healthy, but I rarely pass up dessert, either. I do not eat red meat, and try to limit other animal products, too. I love to bake, although I seem to collect a lot of scone and biscotti recipes which I NEVER get around to making. I bake and eat A LOT of cookies and muffins... I almost always reduce the sugar by 1/4 and use whole wheat pastry flour for at least part of the flour. Those two changes do so much to make recipes healthier without compromising taste. I try to reduce fat whenever I can, too, but while I want to eat healthy, I still want to ENJOY what I eat!!! I seem to give a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews here - I seem to have a pretty good sense of what I like by looking at a recipe before I try it. Thank you to anyone that tries my recipes in return, or photographs them.
