Salmon Patties

Amanda will not appreciate me posting this recipe, it is one of the two things I cook that she will not eat.  The other is meatloaf.  I'm not sure what her hang up is, these are not exotic or weird taste sensations.  Kinda all American basic home cooking in my opinion.  Anyway, I love this meal... it is easy; usually on the table in less than 30 minutes. And it is a great one to fall back on when you have forgotten to thaw some meat. I usually serve it with macaroni and cheese and this time I also served a smaller version of greek green beans or fassoliakia. (Although Amanda calls them southern green beans and I'm not sure why.)

Salmon Patties

1 can (15 oz) salmon
4 slices bread (finely crumbled) or 1 cup cracker crumbs
2 large eggs
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (I often use 2 or 2 chopped scallions)
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp dill weed (fresh if possible)
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste

Drain salmon. Crumble with fork. Combine all ingredients.
Shape into 6 - 8 round patties.
Pan-fry on both sides in oil until golden brown.
I usually do mine on my griddle.
Serve with cocktail or tartar sauce.

  1. I think I'd like these if they were made with fresh salmon, but then of course that would defeat the "easy" pantry part of the dish. I just don't like the idea of canned salmon, yes, I KNOW I love canned tuna fish. Each their own.
