If your burger night is feeling played out, then these salmon patties are sure to shake things up a little. A quick mix of goat cheese, oregano, olive oil, and lemon juice brings a hintof tang and richness to the patty mixture. Wrap it all up in the flatbread of your choice and serve with a fresh salad for a quick, easy, and nutritious weeknight dinner.
