Dinner from leftovers

Have I mentioned that I like to cook? I do. A lot.

If you're ever faced with leftover salmon, try this:

Greek Salmon Cakes

Mix together leftover cooked salmon (baked, roasted, poached, whatever), chopped scallions, chopped dill, crumbled feta cheese, a squeeze of lemon juice, some breadcrumbs, an egg, and a dollop of mayonnaise.

Form into patties with your hands. Coat the patties with more breadcrumbs. Put on a plate in the refrigerator for an hour or more. (This keeps the patties from falling apart when you saute them. I often do this in the morning for that night's dinner.)

Just before dinnertime, saute the salmon cakes in olive oil until golden brown. Serve with a lemon- and dill-spiked mayonnaise or thick yogurt.
