For as long as I can remember my mom has been making recipes from the Milk calendar. The best part is she modifies those recipes significantly now to make them more healthy or rather, joyous-approved! And yes, they NEED to be modified from the original.
I decided to post this recipe after my mom texted me photos of her dinner. I was immediately drooling when I saw these salmon cakes. Now bless her heart she doesn't take foodgasmic worthy photos, but the enthusiasm sells it for me. I think my mom needs her own instagram actually! HA!
This recipe is quick and easy. Plus you can use wild canned or leftover cooked salmon for these little cakes of deliciousness. The fresh herbs which are abundant in Canadian gardens now make them extra flavourful, and healthy too! Fresh herbs are wonderful heavy metal detoxifiers.
How to enjoy? Place on a bed of cooked or raw greens!
When my mom emailed me her recipe she had all the ingredients listed as "about" this much and "about" that much.So she said "The reason I have the word ABOUT so much in the recipe is because I don't always carefully measure the ingredients.....just put in what feels right!!".
Wise words. Just do what you feel is right. Listen to your inner Julia Child when cooking in the kitch. As long as you are cooking from fresh ingredients and putting love into your food, you will make GOOD FOOD!
