Salmon Patties

While waiting at the orthodontist and reading a magazine, I saw a recipe for Salmon Croquettes, and it sounded like a good thing to add to our menu this week. I couldn't find the same recipe when I googled it, so we tried a variation of one at allrecipes.com. It was pretty good, and a great way to use the canned salmon in our food storage!

Salmon Croquettes

1 can (14 oz.) salmon, drained and bones removed
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
seasoned salt and cayenne pepper to taste

Form into 4-6 patties and fry in a touch of olive oil until cooked through. Turn gently!


I read another magazine and found a recipe for Crab Cakes. I figured the seasonings would work well with salmon, so am adding this option here. Maybe I'll try it with crab sometime also!

Crab Cakes

1 can (16 oz.) crabmeat, drained
6 green onions, chopped (can briefly saute in some oil first if desired)
1 egg
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon mustard powder
2 cups (about 60 crackers or 2 sleeves) Ritz cracker crumbs
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup bread crumbs

Combine everything but bread crumbs and form into 8 patties. Carefully coat each patty with bread crumbs. Heat some oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties in two batches, turning once until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.
