Salmon Cakes

Salmon is a great source of Calcium, Protein and Omega 3 Fatty Acids. While it is important to try to avoid fish with high levels of Mercury while pregnant, canned salmon is perfectly safe. Just try to limit your servings to a couple of times a week.

2 large baking potatoes
2 cans salmon – large bones removed, smaller ones left in for added calcium
Salt and Pepper
3 green onions thinly sliced
1 egg lightly beaten
Handful of fresh dill, chopped
Olive oil

Steam or boil potatoes until tender. Mash using a potato masher. Allow to cool slightly then add to a large bowl with remaining ingredients adding salt and pepper to taste.

Mix well together and form into 4 large patties. If mixture seems too wet add a handful of breadcrumbs.

In a large skillet heat a splash of Olive Oil and fry salmon cakes until golden brown on the outside and heated through the middle. Serve warm.
