SALMON CAKES WITH CHIVE SAUCE

June 20, 2014

It’s all too easy for me to get in a boneless, skinless chicken breast rut (oops, didn’t mean to make that sound so gross) and serve up the same protein seven nights a week. Occasionally, we do ground turkey. And even more rarely, some form of pork or beef. But fish. I always forget you in my day to day! And you’re pricey, so if I’m going to splurge, it better be for a real good dinner.

    Have you tried any other herbs instead of parsley(e.g. dill or oregano)? Thinking about doing a variation of these at my restaurant.
