I created this recipe many years ago when I needed something quick for dinner. It has become my favorite way to eat salmon.
My Salmon Patties
1 can, about 12 oz, salmon
1 small to medium sized cooked potato (not a waxy potato)
Your choice: chopped fresh dill or chopped fresh chives.
flour or bread crumbs for coating patties (you can use your favorite crumb)
small amount canola oil
sour cream (add dollop when serving)
In a small size bowl:
beat the egg with dill or chives and set aside
In a medium bowl:
coarsely mash the potato and salmon together
Add the egg mixture, and work it in to the potato/salmon mixture with a fork
Heat a skillet then add enough oil just to coat the bottom.
Form the salmon mixture in patties about the size of the palm of your hand and about 1″ thick.
Coat each side of the patties with flour, and remove the excess
On medium heat, cook the patties about ten minutes on each side
When you see the sides of the patties have cooked halfway, flip and finish the other side.
Remove patties from the skillet to a paper towel covered plate to absorb excess oil.
Serve with dollop of sour cream and green salad.
