Salmon Cakes


I made these salmon cakes the other night and all I can say is "Finally!" I had two cans of salmon in my pantry forever and every time I decided to make salmon cakes I would decide on something else. Well the other night there was not much else to cook here so these cakes were finally made. Now I wish I hadn't waited so long. They were very, very good and simple. So simple. This should be posted under "beginner dishes." It's also pretty economical and that is always a plus. Here's the recipe and if you make them I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! This will end up making 4 large patties.

2 cans salmon (skinned and boned)
1 egg
1/2 sleeve of Ritz crackers or any other butter cracker, crushed fine
1 green pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbs dried parsely (crushed)
salt and pepper to taste

In large bowl mix together all the above ingredients and form into pattie.
In large skillet add approximately 2 or 3 tablespoons vegetable oil.
Turn heat up to medium high and when oil is hot add salmon patties and cook for several minutes on each side till somewhat brown and slightly crisp.
Drain on paper towels.

These taste great on either a bun with lettuce and tomato or even by themselves with some potato salad on the side.

Salmon cakes used to a recurring meal on American tables. Fish cakes are very popular in Thialand. Yours look good and sound great. I hope you're having a wonderful day.

I remember having these regularly as a child. I found the little soft bones in the salmon cakes intriguing. Apparently they are good source of calcium. Very nostalgic!

Love it! Four out of five of us would dig in and ask for more. Guess my own twin will be out of luck. :) Thanks for sharing as I haven't seen these before.
