Fresh Salmon Burgers

Everyone loves a good hamburger at a summer barbecue, but sometimes you just want something a little different. Salmon burgers are a really delicious option and are healthier too. Homemade salmon burgers are really easy to make and blow the frozen ones in the supermarket out of the water. This recipe from Coastal Living takes about 5 to 10 minutes to prep and then just another 5 minutes to cook. To snazz up the salmon burger a bit, I also made a Greek yogurt topping and added some lemon and garlic to the buns before toasting. Ingredients: Salmon Burgers: 1 slice white bread 1/4 cup milk 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons fresh dill finely chopped 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper sliced cucumbers, optional Buns: 4 hamburger buns 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 garlic clove, minced the zest of one lemon 1 teaspoon dill, chopped Greek yogurt sauce: 1 cup Greek yogurt 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon dill, finely chopped the zest and juice of 1 lemon

Chicken Fricassee With Tarragon

Cold weather always makes me crave comfort food. I tend to really want pasta (and would be perfectly happy eating it every day that drops below 40 degrees) but am always open to healthier comfort food options. BetterEats.com had a lighter recipe for Chicken Fricassee, which is a French stew with chicken, vegetables, white wine, and cream that when paired with some day old bread makes a fantastic comfort food option.   Ingredients: 2 1/2 pounds chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks) – bone-in, skin removed (I used 1 chicken breast, 1 thigh, 1 leg, and 1 drumstick) 1/4 teaspoon salt pepper, black – to taste 2 tablespoons flour, all-purpose 1 tablespoon oil, olive, extra virgin 1 cup shallots (about 4 large ones) 1 cup wine, dry white 1 1/2 cups broth, chicken, less sodium 1 medium carrot – peeled and thinly sliced (about 1/3 cup) 1 pound mushrooms, I used 1/2 lb baby bellas, 1/2 lb button – wiped clean and halved or quartered 4 sprig(s) tarragon, fresh 4 teaspoons tarragon, fresh – chopped 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 tablespoon water 1/4 cup sour cream, reduced-fat 2 teaspoons mustard, Dijon

Crab Cakes with Spicy Remoulade
