Are you scrambling around your kitchen looking for what to make for dinner? Let me give you an easy out with salmon patties. I sometime forget to use these as a back-up plan for a last minute meal but I remembered last week as I dug through my pantry looking for something…anything for dinner. There were two cans of wild salmon waiting on me to transform them into dinner.
When you’re shopping, go ahead and buy the kind with skin and bones…your bones will thank you. And make sure it’s wild caught! I will warn you when you open the can that it might look a little different than the fresh salmon fillets that we buy to broil or grill. Don’t look too closely. There will be soft bones/cartilage and skin which add to the nutritional value and will mash in and no one will ever know. Canned salmon is full of Calcium, Vitamin D, B-12, Selenium and let’s not forget the omega-3 fatty acids. So good!
Then add almond flour or ground pork skins and a couple eggs to help bind the patties. Add some Old Bay Seasoning which is a stand-by at our house these days. And don’t forget the lemon juice. Patty the salmon mixture and pan fry in ghee or butter.
Didn’t I say this would be easy? Keep a couple cans in the pantry for a last minute dinner!
How to Serve
I typically serve my salmon patties with tater tots for the carb-eating crowd, a salad and some type of fresh vegetable like asparagus or broccoli. Enjoy!
