Salmon Patties


Salmon Patties
Recipe type: Meatless Entrees
  • ~1 lb can salmon (make sure it’s wild Alaskan salmon)
  • 1 Tbs. chopped onion
  • ½ tsp salt (adjust as needed)
  • 1 well-beaten egg
  • cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbs. chopped parsley (dried is fine)
  • ¼ cup crushed crackers or bread crumbs (oatmeal works too)
  1. Remove skin & backbones (optional) of salmon.
  2. Flake fish.
  3. Add seasonings, crushed crackers or bread crumbs, onion, egg & parsley.
  4. Mix well.  Shape into 3" patties.
  5. Dip lightly into dry bread crumbs (optional) and saute in hot butter or (not-so-hot) olive oil in skillet till golden brown.
Added Bonus: Leaving some bones in adds calcium and minerals!  Gross, but healthy...  (My Mom says that when she was a child, finding a circle of the backbone was like finding treasure and just part of the patty.  So why did she remove all of them when I was a kid?) Time Saver: It's easy to get a small amount of onions if you already have them in the freezer. Cost:  $3.00 or less (using Meijer brand pink Alaskan salmon 14.5 oz, reg price) Super Foods:  2 (3 if you use olive oil) and 1 honorable mention (2 with whole grain bread crumbs)
