I recently discovered a great salmon recipe that doesn't smell or taste fishy. Perfect for picky eaters, this healthy meal is both easy to make and delicious - personally, I know I'll be making it much more often to get those Omega-3s! Enjoy!

Salmon Rostis with a Hint of Dill

Prep Time: 25-30 min
Cooking Time: 40-55 min

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled but left whole
  • 4 small salmon fillets
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2/3 cup fat free, plain yogurt
  • 2 medium spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs chives, chopped
  • 2 tbs dill, chopped
  • Lemon wedges

Preparation

  1. Either boil the sweet potato for 30-40 minutes until it begins to soften, draining and setting aside to set cool, or microwave on high for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tbs olive oil in a frying pan, then add the salmon. Cover the pan with a tight fitting lid and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 8-10 minutes until the salmon is just cooked all the way through. Remove from heat and set aside until salmon is cool enough to handle. Flake salmon and place in a bowl with pan juices.
  3. Grate the cooked sweet potato. Alternatively, you can finely chop or break apart with spoon. Add to bowl with salmon and toss together to mix.
  4. Divide the sweet potato and salmon mixture into equal quantities and form into flattened patty shapes. Heat remaining 1 tbs olive oil in large nonstick frying pan and cook the rostis over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through.
  5. While the rostis are cooking, place yogurt in bowl with chopped spring onions, chives, and dill. Mix well.
  6. Drain rostis, then spoon over the yogurt and serve with fresh lemon wedges. Goes great with a side of steamed green beans.
