Salmon Patties

I think my readers know our family loves seafood. Whether it's shrimp, catfish, salmon or crab, we have seafood at least once or twice a week. Last week my oldest daughters boyfriend came for dinner for the reason that she requested we had salmon burgers that night. He is strictly a meat and potatoes kind of guy and had never had salmon. While I would have preferred a nice grilled salmon for that evening, my daughter was craving salmon burgers and wanted to share them with him... (ok, force him to try them... LOL). At the end of the meal he professed to like salmon... burgers at least. Whether or not I believe him, I'm not sure. But we have another chance to see; salmon patties. This time baked. A little more healthy than fried.

I like these plain with a little lemon but you can eat them on a bun if you'd like. Give it a try!

Baked Salmon Patties

1 can salmon
1/2 onion, grated
salt and pepper
1 egg, beaten
5 saltines, crushed
3 T evaporated milk
melted butter

Remove bones from salmon, drain and set juice aside. In mixing bowl, place salmon, onion, pepper and salt, beaten egg, cracker crumbs and milk. If it's too dry just add a little of the reserved juice from the salmon. When it's a nice texture and easily formed, make 6 patties. Place in greased baking dish brushed with melted butter. Bake for 30 mins. in 350 degree oven, or until slightly browned.Print Friendly and PDF
