Active Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Amount: 6 servings

 

Ingredients:

1 pound Salmon Fillets, skin removed, cut into 1-inch chunks

1 cup Japanese-style Panko bread crumbs

1 (4 ounce) package crumbled feta cheese, divided (you can use reduced fat or fat free feta)

½ cup fresh spinach leaves, chopped

2 large eggs, beaten

3 tablespoons chopped green onions, divided

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, divided

2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice, divided (you need one lemon)

2 tablespoons capers, drained and chopped

¼ cup sour cream

¼ cup plain yogurt

1 teaspoon lemon zest

Directions:

Place salmon chunks in a food processor or blender; using on/off turns, coarsely grind salmon. Transfer to a large bowl.

Add bread crumbs, ½ cup cheese, spinach, eggs, 2 tablespoons green onions, 1 tablespoon dill, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon capers; salt and pepper to taste. Mix with hand or spoon until well combined. Form into 6 patties. Place in refrigerator, covered, until firm (about ½ hour).
