I don’t know about you, but I grew up with my mom making huge patties of canned salmon. They were like a half inch think and gross. I liked them at one point, but eventually stopped eating them. Recently, I found a recipe for these that actually looked pretty good. I bought the salmon and it sat there for a while until I got up the nerve – lol. I only made a half a recipe (as usual) so I didn’t have to worry about eating 4 servings if I didn’t like it.
Ingredients – minus the celery salt because I forgot. I was going to replace it with the seasoning in the front, but I ended up just leaving it out.
I mixed it all up and tried to take a picture, but no matter what I did, it kept looking like cat food. I tried different settings, different positions and every time – cat food. Instead, here they are shaped and frying
I had some problems with the patties. They fell apart slightly and they were a bit sticky when I was making them.
Look at the crust on these things. If you don’t have a non-stick pan, the olive oil in the recipe is essential.
I added some corn and Rice Orzo Pilaf from Trader Joe’s to make a complete dinner. Instead of the mayo from the original post, I added this stuff as a condiment.
I can’t believe how much I like it. It was a spur of the moment purchase and I am glad I did. I have used it in so many ways since buying it.
Dinner! I couldn’t decide which picture I liked better, so here’s both of them 🙂
I really enjoyed the patties. Much more than I ever thought I would. I really wanted to go back and eat the other serving, but I restrained myself. Once I gave it time, this was a really filling dinner.
I completely forgot to add the garlic until I was writing the recipe in my own little cookbook. I think it would definitely add another dimension. I also tried to grate the onion so there weren’t big onion chunks to bite into, but that kind of failed. I can’t wait to make these again. With ALL of the original ingredients – lol. Even the issues with forming the patties won’t stop me!!
