Salmon Cakes

Brandi Kirkpatrick


Okay, so I don't mind fish but I am a fish snob. I don't mind fish fillets, but you try to feed me a fish "loaf" and I will turn into Dracula at a garlic farm. Don't ask me why I am weird in this way... because the reality is that cakes are "tiny loaves" but don't rain on my parade. :)

This recipe is also one that is still "in progress." I did a test run on my father today and that batch lacked flavor. So, I have mentally adjusted and this is the recipe I came up with. I have to try this version still.

2 (6 oz) cans of salmon (no skin or bones)
1 sleeve of ritz whole grain crackers, finely crushed

1/4 cup pepper (green, red, orange,etc), finely minced
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 eggs, beaten

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

In large bowl, place all ingredients, except frying oil; gently combine until well blended.
In a skillet heat about 2 Tablespoons of oil. Form salmon mixture into patties (mine were about the size of a smushed golf ball). When oil is hot enough add patties, a few at a time, to skillet.
Cook patties for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and hot. Repeat with remaining patties. Serve warm.
