Heart Healthy Salmon Quinoa Cakes Recipe
Preheat the oven to 425°. Lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Rub salmon with olive oil and season with 1/8 teaspoon of the salt and black pepper to taste. Place the salmon on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Flake salmon with a fork. Reduce oven to 350°.
In a medium bowl, combine the flaked salmon, quinoa, scallions, chopped dill, yogurt, mustard, egg, lemon juice, paprika and chili powder, if using. Season with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste.
Form salmon mixture into 2-inch-wide patties. Arrange salmon patties on baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking, or until lightly crisp.
Serve topped with a dollop of sour cream and a fresh dill sprig, if desired.
