Salmon patties are great on their own, or you can serve them "burger style" on a bun. Either way, this is a simple way to work more heart-healthy seafood into your diet.

400 Calorie Meal: Have 1 Patty
600 Calorie Meal: Have 2 Patties
What you'll need
1 1-pound can salmon
½ cup diced mixed vegetables (i.e., red bell pepper, spring onions, cucumber)
2 TBSP lemon juice
¼ cup plain Greek-style yogurt
2 TBSP Dijon-style mustard
½ cup dry whole wheat bread crumbs
2 tsp. olive oil or canola oil for cooking
What to do
Drain liquid from canned salmon and put the fish into a bowl. Remove any skin and bones from the salmon, then flake with a fork. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together the diced vegetables, lemon juice, sour cream, mustard and bread crumbs until well blended, then add salmon and mix well. Shape into 6 patties.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium high heat and add olive or canola oil. Gently place patties in the pan and cook until nicely browned on one side, then turn and cook the other side.
Note: To prepare with tuna, replace salmon with 3 five-ounce cans tuna in water, drained
