We are into our second week of meatless meals here at Chez Lenaburg. We did enjoy a brief respite on Sunday with some old fashioned fried chicken, potato salad and cole slaw. But Monday through Saturday through Lent, meatless it will be. 

Finding new fish recipes that my family would actually eat has been a wee bit of a challenge. My guys are not huge fish lovers. Shrimp, scallops, crab meat...they love. The kind of seafood with gills, not so much. So I was thinking about making crab cakes but the cost of lump crabmeat is a bit prohibitive at the moment. So when I saw these little bites of delight I knew I had to give them a try. 

My son does not love salmon. White fish he may tolerate but salmon...not his favorite...at all. That was the second challenge, to "hide" the salmon as much as possible while still keeping it healthy. I have to say these did not disappoint. They were moist and filled with some really nice flavor. The sweet red peppers and green onions supported the salmon instead of overwhelming it. 

I served them on a bed of greens and some chopped veggies. It was a light and healthy meal. And yes, my son did eat them and announced that salmon wasn't so bad after all. 

Celebrate the Feast!
