Mom's Salmon Patties
While growing up Mom's salmon patties were an ingenious method for her to get us to eat more fish, I'm sure. And, we always ate them, albeit with ketchup, but we never complained. I haven't had these in years but found myself craving them lately. A phone call to my Mom produced the following recipe.
2 (15 oz) Cans of Salmon
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup of bread crumbs
Olive oil or Canola Oil
1) Open two cans of salmon and remove any unwanted bones and skin. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
2) Form into medium size patties. (Approximately four patties per can). If the mixture is too dry add a splash of milk.
3) Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and place first batch of patties in pan. When sufficiently browned on one side, flip, and finish browning the second side.
4) Keep first batch in a warm oven while cooking the second batch. (Serve with asparagus or a cucumber salad).
