This is a super easy and healthy meal that even your kiddos will enjoy. They don't have to know that they are getting all that good omega-3 just by eating little pancakes. I have a recipe on here for cheesy salmon patties, but I wanted to put a spin on those (which I love by the way) and make them have a little more of a kick. I think I've mentioned that I love Dijon mustard on here before. So, I'm always looking to where I can add it in my recipes. Well a few trips ago to Trader Joe's I found a whole grain Dijon mustard, and it is so good!! I love it so much. I hope I don't run out before I can get back and get some more. That is what I used in this recipe, but I am sure that regular Dijon mustard will work just fine. I also love that these are baked. By all means, you can fry these, but I wanted to keep it healthy. So if you like salmon and easy, you'll love these!

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (I use whole grain Dijon from Trader Joe's.)
2 tablespoons oil (I use canola.)
1/4 cup bread crumbs, plus more for breading (I used whole wheat Italian flavored.)
12 ounces canned salmon (feel free to use fillets, just chop them up.)
fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Mix Dijon mustard, oil, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, egg, salmon and pepper together until combined. Once mixed, form mixture into patties. Dredge patties into bread crumbs and place on baking sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 5 minutes on each side.
