Canned salmon is a less expensive way to get that nutritious fish into your diet. As much as I would love buying salmon fillets, it just isn’t in the cards. Look for canned salmon near the tuna. I buy salmon that has been wild caught in the USA. These patties turned out great! I served them with slaw, baked beans and fruit.
In the summer I think they would be really good with watermelon, corn, and sliced tomatoes and cucumbers!
1 can salmon (14.5 oz), drain and flake
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup dry potato flakes
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
juice of 1/2 a lemon
5 dashes hot sauce
1/4 t. garlic powder
salt and pepper
2 T. olive oil
lemon wedges and/or tartar sauce for serving
Preheat skillet over medium heat. Mix all of the ingredients though salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Roll a golf ball sized amount in the ball of your hand and flatten until a little less than 1/2 inch thick. Place 1 T. of olive oil on the skillet and then place the patties. Cook for 5 minutes on each side. Repeat with remaining mixture and oil. Serve with fresh lemon and/or tartar sauce.
