Usually once a week, I serve my family fish (hey, we need the brain food!) ...and it's usually either salmon or halibut, our two favorite kinds of fish. Fortunately, everyone in my house LOVES, that helps. However for anyone who might not particularly care for it, this is a great recipe! You get your needed nutrients that fish provides us, w/out the fishy taste!

We all certainly enjoyed our Salmon Burgers for lunch today! And of course, it's a recipe from Paula Deen. :)

This sounds complicated but soooooo delicious. I am having salmon tonight. I am lazy. Just cooking it on the stove top with baked potatoes. I can't wait to eat all of your good food. Is the picture your food or from the recipe book.

It was extremely good, Mama...and a healthy burger at the same time!

It's Paula Deen's picture...BUT, I have to say mine looked exactly the same...ask Kevin. :)

I actually thought that was the picture from off of my plate!! I liked it so much that I ate leftovers. . .not too common for me.

that looks so pretty, but I am not used to having them like a burger...always a side with beans or something, lol...I love bread though so it has to be good!
