Mom's Salmon Patties
One 15 oz. can of pink salmon
Drain and bone the salmon. Remove any big pieces of skin. I give the liquid to the cat. Some cats won't take it, though.
Combine with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. I just use my hands.
Form into four patties. They will be quite soft, but you can manage.
Cover the bottom of a heavy-bottomed skillet with oil (I use peanut or olive.) and heat.
Fry on both sides until well-browned.
Serves two hungry people, or four if you have a lot of other stuff to eat.
Whenever I make mashed potatoes, I always try to secret away a half cup of them for salmon patties the next day. This is a dish you can make from the pantry on a moment's notice. I like to serve them with cornbread dressing and green beans.
