I am a huge salmon fan. Like my fanaticism surrounding the sport of hockey, I find new and delicious ways to serve salmon all the time. My favorite is simple and grilled on cedar planks.
I have also done salmon with lentils in a crock pot. The lentils cook all day and the salmon goes in on top of parchment paper to steam when you get home from work for 25 minutes. It is a wonderful recipe and tastes delicious.
This past week I wanted salmon and just couldn’t justify the current market price for fresh salmon. I always keep a can of salmon available, just in case of power outages and such in the winter months. So, I went in search of a salmon patty recipe that I had all the ingredients on hand. This in itself is no easy task.
As I do with many recipes, I modified this one I found on AllRecipes.com slightly as I did not have dill weed or celery salt available. My version is below.
- 1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup garlic and herb seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup dry potato flakes
- 1 medium onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
In a medium bowl, mix salmon, eggs, garlic and herb seasoned dry bread crumbs, dry potato flakes, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Form the mixture into 2 inch balls, and flatten into patties about 1/2 inch thick.
