I first made salmon patties a while back, long before I ever even thought about blogging. I made them because before we started cooking religiously, Gary would buy canned salmon and eat it right out of the can. I tried it, and it was enough to make me gag. I don’t know how he can eat it like that. When he insists he wants to eat that, I insist I make something from it instead of eating it plain.
I first came across this recipe a couple of years ago. I made it as stated in the recipe, except I used bread crumbs instead of the slice of bread.
This time, I didn’t follow the recipe exactly. I didn’t have anymore eggs(!), I used panko, and I also didn’t use the flour to bind it. I decided not to use the salt and pepper either, because I didn’t think it needed anymore salt.
Easy Salmon Patties
Loosely adapted from: allrecipes.com
1 (14.75 oz) can salmon, drained and flaked
1 small onion, diced
1 egg, lightly beaten (I didn’t use because I was out)
1/2 cup panko
s&p to taste (I didn’t use)
1. Heat a pan on high heat.
2. Combine drained salmon, onion, panko, and egg. Mix well to combine. Separate into 4 sections. Shape and mold into patties.
3. Add a thin layer of oil to the pan. Place patties in oil, cook for about 4-5 min on each side. Drain on paper towels and serve.
I didn’t have anymore eggs on hand, so I omitted and packed the patties tightly. I only flipped them once, so it didn’t fall apart. We ate this with mixed veggies and rice.
