Mom's Salmon Patties

When I was a kid, one of my favorite dinners was Salmon Patties. It wasn't until years later that I realized how easy they were to make. Mom must have loved our requests for this simple meal. Salmon Patties, for those of you not familiar with them, are kind of like crab cakes, just with salmon instead of crab meat. Served with a couple veggies and a salad, this is a delicious dinner and an easy way to get some seafood into your diet.

2 cans pink salmon
1/2 diced onion
4 slices of bread
1 cup mayo
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp worsteshire sauce

1. Preheat oven to 375.

2. Set out slices of bread so they will begin to dry out/go stale.

3. Mix salmon, onion, mayo, lemon juice and worsteshire sauce.

4. Slice the bread into small cubes and blend in with the other ingredients.

5. Scoop by the spoonful onto a greased pan. Flatten each scoop with a fork. Top with salt and pepper to taste (and paprika--optional). Bake for 20-25 minutes.

I served this with sauteed squash and onion baked potatoes (see recipe in previous post).

Left over Salmon Patties also make a great sandwich. Served on a hearty wheat bread with lettuce, tomato and remoulade sauce, this is a great way to mix it up with leftovers.

Bon Appetit!
