Yummy Mummy Recipe: Salmon Tostis (Salmon Cakes)

This is another recipe from the EatingWell.com cookbook that I recently downloaded. If you are starting to think all I eat is salmon, think again. 😛 I enjoy the challenge of working with ingredients I already have, and especially enjoy how this helps with the budget!

I used fresh grated potatoes instead of the frozen hashbrowns the recipe calls for and was happy with the result. I skipped the sauce and served these with straight up sour cream, steamed carrots & beans, and roast potatoes & spaghetti squash! phew! A colourful plate! 🙂

Yummy Mummy Recipe: Black Bean & Salmon Tostadas

I found this recipe while looking for inspiration for canned salmon. We have plenty of it since my hubby’s family catch it fresh, then can it for future use. It’s an excellent ingredient, since it packs a ton of valuable omega 3s, and versatile; it’s great hot or cold. 
I downloaded a salmon cookbook from Eating Well.com, so am trying out some of the recipes. You can check it out here. I made a few minor tweeks: I bought tostadas (see photo) instead of using tortillas. I also heated them in the oven for 5 minutes, then added the bean spread & salmon mix, and heated for another 5 before topping with the other cold ingredients.

The finished product 🙂
As I mentioned, I made a few minor modifications. I also skipped the cooking spray and used a non- stick baking rack. The recipe made plenty, but I only made 6 for the hubby and I, and that was enough for dinner, allowing for leftovers the next day. We both agreed this is a funky recipe, worth trying again.
