Salmon Patties

This time of year is always hard for my blog.,  Lots of stuff going on with the kids, not enough daylight and the Christmas madness.

I don't usually use canned salmon.  My Mom gave me this can of salmon that was about to expire ans said she did not want to eat it.  I decided to make some salmon patties.  I discard the little bones in the fish- not my thing but some people will just eat them.  Whatever you like.  I go through the meat remove the skins and the tiny bones.

The best salmon patties are made from fresh fish that you cooked up previously.  But this is still pretty good if you want something speedy!
This is a salmon patty made from freshly cooked meat.

Salmon Patties

1 can salmon
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 egg

1/4 cup parsley
2 tablespoons dried onion
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon capers
1 clove garlic chopped finely
a couple dashes of Tabasco
salt and a couple grinds of black pepper

Remove bones from salmon and peel skin off.  With a fork, crush it up a bit.  Add in mayonnaise, egg, Tabasco, lemon juice and mix throughly.  Then add in the remainder of the ingredients.  After mixing everything, let it sit for at least an hour. If your mixture seems too wet, add a bit more bread crumbs.

Lightly grease a skillet.  Fry patties until nicely browned and then flip.
