Salmon Patties with LemonSauce: Easy and under 40 minutes!

I am not a fish lover but when you add a glaze or a sauce well maybe?  I added some lemon sauce to this salmon recipe  as it offered a nice change to a basic salmon patty.  Also some green peas with sauteed onions as a side as well as wheat couscous.

Sound like a healthy meal?  Yes it is!!!  Easy and you can do it in under 40 minutes. If you want more of these type recipes let me know.....Happy Cooking!
