This meal is so delicious! I love the lemon vinaigrette and end up pouring some on my rice too.

1 1/2 c. salmon, flaked
2 tbsp. parsley
3 tbsp. mayo
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp. dijon

In a small bowl stir together salmon, scallion and parsley. In separate bowl combine mustard & mayo. Season with S & P. Add mayo mixture to salmon mixture and stir together. Add 1/2 c. of the breadcrumbs to bind togehter.

Shape into cakes and chill for 1 hour (I don't always do that!). Dip cakes in remaining crumbs. Heat oil in skillet and cook cakes on each side until golden brown. Drizzel with lemon vinaigrette.

Friday, July 14, 2006 Pasta W/ Shrimp

This is my version of a recipe I found online while looking for something light and tasty to make for dinner. I added way more veggies and changed a few other things. It's a hit around here!


1/2 lb. shrimp, tails off, deveined
8 oz. pasta (I use whole wheat spaghettini)
2 garlic cloves
1/3 c. red onion, cut into bit size pieces
1/2 c. zucchini, cut into bit size pieces
1/2 c. red pepper, bite size pieces
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. dry white wine
1 tomato, chopped
S & P to taste

Boil water for pasta with 1 tsp salt & olive oil.
Oil non-stick skillet. Warm pan.

Add shrimp, garlic, onion, zucchini, pepper and cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes or until veggies are tender but crisp.

Add tomatoes, salt, basil, lemon juice & white wine. Stir for another 2-3 minutes until well mixed and warmed thoroughly.

Spoon over cooked pasta. Sprinkle with parmesan.
