This recipe is a fish cake makeover--instead of forming into patties and sautéeing or frying in a pan, we combine the salmon with protein-packed quinoa and bake it in muffin cups. You'll love the lemon-mustard sauce that accompanies these savory muffins.

  • Stir together panko and lemon-pepper seasoning in a medium bowl; add milk, eggs, egg whites, and oil, stirring until combined. Add the panko mixture to the salmon mixture; stir until well mixed.

  • Generously coat twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray. Divide the salmon-panko mixture evenly among the prepared cups, using a heaping 1/3 cup in each cup. Bake about 25 minutes or until the tops are golden and a thermometer inserted in center of a cup registers 160 degrees F. Cool in the muffin cups on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, for lemon-mustard sauce, stir together yogurt, mustard, lemon juice, pepper, and the remaining 1 tablespoon chives.

  • To serve, divide arugula among six serving plates. Run a knife around the edges of each salmon cup to loosen; remove from the muffin cups. Arrange on top of the arugula. Serve with lemon wedges and lemon-mustard sauce. If desired, sprinkle with additional chopped chives.

Great flavor. We are thinking of freezing them and bringing them with when we go camping. They are so fresh tasting when pared with the arugula sauce. Read More
