Bean Fishin'

Our Friday seafood dish-Fish Cakes-is made with 1 cod fillet and 1 flounder fillet.  The bean salad has fresh green beans, and three dried bean varieties.  I love the variety  in this light, not-so-hard dinner to begin the weekend!  The fish cake is inspired by Food and Wine's "Market Math" recipe for Shrimp Cakes.
