- 2 5-ounce packages Chicken of the Sea Boneless, Skinless Pink Salmon
- ⅓ cup plain panko bread crumbs (or ¼ cup plain traditional bread crumbs)
- ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
- 2 scallions, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 3 tablespoons plain 2% Greek yogurt
- 1 large egg
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 6-inch pita pockets (white or whole wheat), cut in half
- 2 cups mixed greens or any lettuce you like
- ½ medium cucumber, very thinly sliced
- 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
- ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
Yogurt Dill Sauce
- ½ cup plain 2% Greek yogurt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
- In a large bowl, combine the salmon, panko bread crumbs, parsley, dill, garlic, lemon juice, Greek yogurt, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Form the mixture into 12 small patties (scoop ¼ cup salmon mixture into your hands, form a ball, and then slightly flatten into a patty shape). Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake until they appear dry on the outside and slightly puffed, 16 to 18 minutes.
- While the salmon patties cook, make the yogurt dill sauce. In a small bowl, stir together the Greek yogurt, garlic powder, salt, lemon juice, dill, and parsley.
- Assemble the pita pockets: spread some of the yogurt dill sauce inside each of the 4 pita pocket halves then stuff each half with lettuce, tomato, sliced cucumber, 3 salmon patties, and 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese. Serve!
