Momma's Salmon Patties
Growing up, Mom always made Salmon patties with mashed potatoes and sweet peas at least once each month, sometimes twice. We love this meal. My grown sons are big fans of the patties, but they eat them like potato chips, so I must make MANY to fill them up! I'll be draining them on the paper towels, and I turn around to add some more to the drain plate, and it will be empty!
Here's Momma's simple, homestyle recipe you can enjoy with your bunch.
YOU WILL NEED:
2 cans pink salmon (remove bones/vertebrae (duh!)
1/2 sleeve saltine crackers
minced onion, to taste (1/4 cup?)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Vegetable oil for frying
Mix all well, and shape into patties. On med-high heat, place oil in skillet, and fry patties till golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
Serve with mashed potatoes and sweet peas.
