SALMON PATTIES 😀
Or Salmon Cakes, fish cakes. yes we love them.
So easy to make and a good use for canned salmon too. Of course I’ve made them with top notch fresh salmon. But usually go with canned (smart shoppers).
(Although in my house…I double this!)
1 can of canned salmon
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup ground cracker crumbs
Sea salt & fresh cracked black pepper to taste
1 tbs olive oil
(Okay. .so I use more 😛 , especially in between batches)
Drain (and reserve a little) liquid from salmon. I like to clean skin & bones off. These bones won’t hurt you but I still like to get the bulk of them off. Mix salmon, egg, onion, cracker crumbs, salt & pepper together. Form into patties, if too dry add some of reserved salmon liquid. Heat oil in frying pan & gently place patties in pan. Brown on each side (aprox 2 minutes per side, turning gently. Drain on paper towel and serve.
Goes great with fried potatoes and onions & a fresh salad. A fresh salad of baby spring mix is enough for me. It goes with your favorite sides. What’s in your garden…pantry.
Some of the sides I’ve done….
crispy kale or collard greens & sweet potatoes 😁
