All these years later, I still keep a can of salmon in the cupboard, and I make salmon patties a few times a year. Mom always fried them, but I find baking them is good also.
When you have no leftovers and have forgotten to thaw something for supper, salmon patties are a welcome dinner meat.
15 oz.canned pink or red salmon
1/2small onion, minced
1/4red or orange pepper, minced
2-4 Tbspdiced roasted red peppers
6 Tbspbread crumbs, your preferred variety. i like italian bread crumbs in this recipe.
1/2 tsplawry's salt-free 17 seasoning or mrs. dashing seasoning
How to Make Salmon Patties
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Brush a griddle or skillet with olive oil.
(Use a silicone pastry brush to spread a 1/2 teaspoon oil over a large area to save calories.)
- Drain and discard the liquid from the salmon. Remove the bones if you wish, but doing so isn't necessary. Put the salmon in a medium mixing bowl. Add all the other ingredients and mix well with a fork.
- Using an ice cream scoop, make mounds of the salmon mixture and put on prepared griddle. Flatten as desired--perhaps use the fork to push down gently. (Or leave mounds.)
- Bake 20-25 minutes until the patties are browned.
- Note: The roasted red peppers are a relatively new addition to the recipe and can be omitted. But they add a layer of flavor I really like.
- I usually eat salmon patties with a bite of sweet pickle.
