Salmon patties are healthy, inexpensive and a quick dinner to make. I like to serve them with mac & cheese that’s kind of runny so I can dip the salmon patties in the cheese sauce. You all know my love for cheese, so this is probably no surprise. My kids like to have ketchup with their salmon patties.
This recipe is adapted from Whole Foods for the Whole Family. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 can salmon
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup cornmeal
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 Tbs. lemon juice
- oil for browning
Pour the salmon into a mixing bowl, along with the liquid in the can. Use a fork or pastry blender to mash the salmon and bones. Stir in all the other ingredients. If the mixture seems to wet, work in a bit more flour. Shape into 8 patties. Fry in oil in a skillet over medium heat, about 7-8 minutes on each side.
Serves 6-8 people.
On a side note – do you consider a meal of fish to be meatless?
