Salmon Patties and Sweet Potatoes

Yummy, healthy and filling! We could hardly clean our plates. :D These salmon patties are great, and have a lot of good stuff in them. I actually got this recipe from the cookbook: The Everything Meals on a Budget Cookbook. So they get the credit, but I'm giving it a thumbs up.

Salmon Patties:1/3 cup brown rice
2/3 cup water
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup shredded carrot
1/4 cup ground almonds
2 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp sour cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 egg
1/2 (14-oz) can salmon, drained
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp butter

1. In small saucepan, combine rice and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until rice is tender and liuid is absorbed.

2. In large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and carrot; cook and stir for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and combine with almonds, flour, sour cream, salt, pepper, and egg in a medium bowl. Stir in cooked rice, then add salmon and stir gently. Add cheese and mix.

3. Form mixture into four patties. Wipe out large saucepan and melt butter over medium heat. Add patties and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, turning once, until patties are crisp and brown (cooked min longer to make sure they were done). Serve immediately.

Freeze leftover fish: place fish in a freezer bag or container, seal, label and freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw, place in refrigerator overnight.

For sweet potatoes, clean skins, poke holes with a fork, wrap with aluminum foil and cook in a 450 degree oven for 40-50 minutes or 350 degree oven for 70-80 minutes.
