lemon tarragon salmon patties~healthy low fat, low carb and tasty!
I made these yesterday for my official entry into the Saucy Mama Kinny Mama recipe contest. There will be a public voting portion; so please bear with me the next few days as I narcissistically pimp myself out.I’ll do my best to keep it subtle.
A subtle narcissist?
Hmmm… hey.. I have a giveaway! Keep reading…
I made a bunch of theses & now I have my freezer stocked with quick and healthy meals. Woo~hoo to that. It’s also brain food with all the good EFAs in there, so not only will I feel healthier when I eat them, I’ll get smarter, too. 😉
Let me re=phrase: A quick pulse in the food processor, add a egg , then stir in your mustard and seasonings. There aren’t too many seasonings because the lemon tarragon mustard does that job. I made a little sauce to go along with it that has the same mustard, and it’s mixed with yogurt. You can use Greek or American yogurt; it just depends on your preference for thickness.
So, this is my official entry. Do you like it? I know you’re probably wondering the prize, right? It’s a $500 cash prize and a $500 Spa Finder gift certificate.
I’ll be honest: I’m not a “spa” person. My idea of a mud treatment involves gardening and my idea of foot exfoliation involves running barefoot on the beach. But, hey… I’m open to trying new things. Heck, maybe I’ll spend the $500 on some tiny dog that can wear bows in her hair and then I’ll have a spa day with Foo-Foo.
Nah, I have other plans for that $500 if I win it, involving a portion of tuition.
So, the deadline is today… which happens to be my birthday (yay me!) maybe that’s a good sign. 😉
By the way, if you’d like to try the mustard, please leave a comment at the end of this post.
Winner will be chosen at random March 7th, 2012. US peeps only, please.
