Salmon Rostis with Dill
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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- While the rostis are cooking, place yogurt in bowl with chopped spring onions, chives, and dill. Mix well.
- Drain rostis, then spoon over the yogurt and serve with fresh lemon wedges. Goes great with a side of steamed green beans.
