Sammie Burgers With Homemade Tartar Sauce and Deep Fried Zucchini Rounds

 I finally had a day off yesterday, which means I spent all day catching up on cleaning, cooking, and baking. Sometimes I feel like such a housewife...I even wore my apron all day. I not-so-secretly enjoy playing housewife. For dinner, Fiancé and I cooked a delicious, but not so healthy meal.

Double Breaded Zucchini Rounds


I made these first, because they take the longest to do

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 4-5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Crazy Jane Mixed-Up Salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Lots of canola oil for frying
DIRECTIONS:
  • Cut Zucchini into 1/2 inch medallions and set aside 
  • I have a deep fryer, so I started heating the oil up to about 350°. If you don't have a deep fryer, use a small pot and heat up 1-2 cups of olive olive oil over medium-low heat. If you don't have a thermometer, you'll know the oil is ready when you throw a little chunk od food in there and it sizzles nicely.
  • On a large plate, spread out the flour
  • Sprinkle all the seasonings over the flour and mix around with a spoon
  • In a small cup, beat the eggs until nice and frothy
  • Place the dry zucchini slices into the four and cover on both sides


  • Then place them into the egg wash

  • Then place them back into the flour and coat a second time


  • Throw into the fryer and cook until golden brown




  •  It took me about 3 batches to cook all the zucchinis
  • When done, set aside and start the sammie burgers

Sammie Burgers


INGREDIENTS:
  • 2- 5oz cans of boneless skinless salmon
  • 1 stalk green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 a tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 egg beaten in a small cup before adding
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons bread crumbs 
  • Canola oil for cooking
  • Whole grain buns 
DIRECTIONS:
  • Drain the cans of salmon, and dump in a medium sized bowl
  • Chop up the onions and garlic (I used the already minced garlic)
  • Mix the onions, garlic, worcestershire, old bay, lemon juice, egg, salt and pepper together until well mixed--but don't mix too much
  • Fold in the breadcrumbs last
  • Using clean hands, mold the salmon mixture into two large patties. Make them a little larger than you would want, because they will shrink a little during cooking

  • In a large pan, heat up about 1 tablespoon canola oil over medium heat
  • Once oil is ready, throw the sammie burgers into the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side 

  • Serve on a toasted whole wheat bun with homemade tartar sauce and zucchini rounds!


Enjoy!
