Fried Salmon Patties I
Fried salmon patties are a cheap and easy favorite of my two small children, ages 1 and 4, and of my husband. Here's how I make them:
- Drain 1 can of pink salmon, with bones for calcium. Dump the salmon into a large bowl and mash with a fork.
- Add about half a big onion, chopped, or sprinkle in some dried onions.
- Mix in one egg.
- Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper, and form flat, palm-sized patties out of the salmon mixture.
- Heat about 1/4 to 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil in a non-stick skillet.. You may need to add more oil as the patties fry.
- When the oil is heated, put the patties in and fry on each side until golden brown. Drain on a plate covered with a paper towel.
