The dish Salmon Patties is a smart way to recycle cooked fish. This time, I had baked salmon from a few days ago. The extra few minutes are so worth it compared to just simply reheating leftovers.  If you don’t have any leftovers you can use canned tuna or salmon just be sure to drain any oil or liquids out. This is good when portioned small as an appetizer or bigger as a burger patty.  I paired this with roasted sweet potato fries which are rich in vitamin A, as well as a 50% lower glycemic load than regular potatoes. It also provides fiber that is important in maintaining gut health. Baking this dish makes it healthier than if you fry it in oil.  To round up your perfect dinner, make a small salad filled with your favorite greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, and any other vegetables you want.  Just make sure you are not using a very rich dressing.  My all-time favorite is a balsamic reduction or balsamic glaze.
