I've said it before and I'll say it again -- my kids are not huge fans of seafood. But when I make these, I actually hear, "Yay! Salmon patties!" This is adapted from the recipe by Jonnylen on allrecipes.com.
2 7.5oz cans of good quality salmon (like those from Vital Choice)
1 small onion, chopped finely
2/3 cup gluten-free bread crumbs or panko
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (or just use a tablespoon or two of dried parsley)
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
Place salmon and its juices, onion, bread crumbs or panko, eggs, parsley and dry mustard into a bowl. Mash with a fork (which will mix everything together) until all of the salmon chunks are gone and it's pretty much a bowl of mush.
Melt butter in a skillet and add oil.
Form patties (about 2" around and 3/4" high) and cook in the butter/oil mixture, about 2-3 minutes per side. Serve warm or at room temperature. Easy! And easy clean-up, which is even nicer. For an even easier clean-up, place the patties on a parchment-lined sheet pan and cook for 20 minutes at 375.
NOTE: good quality canned salmon contains tiny, little edible bones that you won't even notice are in there once everything is mashed up. They are VERY good for you. Eat them all up!
