Salmon Nuggets

Adapted from Seafood Twice A Week by Evie Hanson and Cindy Snyder, MPH, RD

(3) 8-oz salmon fillets, about 1-inch thick
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
1 Tbsp margarine, or butter if desired
1 Tbsp Vera Jane's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic, minced

Cut salmon fillets into two portions along the bone. Combine the crumbs with lemon pepper seasoning, and roll the salmon pieces in the crumb mixture.

Combine the margarine, oil, lemon juice, and garlic in a nonstick skillet. Sauté salmon pieces about 8 to 10 minutes or until done.

Note: We prefer to use a combination of butter and oil when cooking fish but, to reduce the saturated fat and cholesterol, we are suggesting the margarine.
