Salmon patties are a quick and tasty heart healthy delight that you can enjoy either as a sandwich or main course. Try using canned salmon due to the fact that it more than likely is wild salmon. You will not have to concern yourself with PCPs or mercury contamination this way.
As a sandwich, of course, simply put the patty between a bun and add tomatoes, lettuce, and a delightful honey mustard sauce. Or, if you prefer, use your favorite condiment.
If you want to enjoy your salmon patty as a main course, simply add some roasted or steamed veggies as a side dish. Add some rice pilaf and nice cold beverage and you will have a well-balanced, healthy meal.
Here is the recipe for salmon patties. This recipe will make 8 patties.
1 14 oz can of wild salmon
½ cup onions, chopped
½ cup croutons, seasoned
1 T mayonnaise
2 eggs, beaten
2 t lemon juice, freshly squeezed (you can use the bottled variety if need be)
1 T parsley, freshly chopped or 2 t dried parsley
1 t garlic powder or 1 T fresh garlic, minced
Drain liquid from salmon. Put into medium size mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients (except for vegetable oil). Mix thoroughly. Form into patties, your desired size.
Lightly spritz a nonstick frying pan or skillet with the vegetable oil. Heat pan over medium heat. Place patties into the pan and cook until done. They will be done when brown on both sides and center is done. Cooking time will be about 20 minutes.
