So I opted to just delete it... and then had every intention of immediately re-doing it.
But it's funny how "life" can just get in the way of our best intentions, isn't it?
I had a young boy with severe disabilities for four days, including over the weekend, and once he was out of bed, I didn't have a moment to scratch my arse, let alone do anything like re-post the recipe.
I've had a real craving for fish lately, but since the Old Guy hasn't been fishing in a while ( he's been tied up going shopping for little boys jocks and clothing for me ...Bless his pea-pickin'-little-heart!) but since I was bound and determined to have some fish, I whipped these Salmon Patties up in just a few minutes. It's not my usual recipe, but to tell you the truth, I doubt if I'll ever do them the old way ever again! These were delicious!!
I used the last green onion before taking the photo!
* 1 can of Salmon ( or you can use mackerel, tuna or the like, to the same quantity)
* Seasoned bread crumbs ( here in Oz, they use seasoned stuffing mix to make stuffing...which is just crumbs...not cubes)
* One egg, beaten
* Finely minced green onion ( spring onion) or any finely minced onion
* Salt and Pepper
Pick through the salmon to remove any bones and finely flake it. Add the minced onion, beaten egg and salt and pepper to taste... and then add a small-medium handful of seasoned crumbs to sort of bind it together. If it seems too loose, just squeeze it a bit, or add more crumbs.
Once it's thoroughly mixed, form into small patties, and dip lightly into some reserved crumbs. You can either shallow fry, or spray the patties with oil and broil/ grill them until golden brown.
You can't really tell it from the photos, but I divided the batch, and did some under the broiler... and the other half in the frying pan. I honestly couldn't tell the difference! (it made about 9-10 smallish patties)
I served these with oven-roasted pumpkin and a big green salad... and they were perfect! They really hit the spot and they'll definitely be on the menu again this week!!
For $3 or so for the can of Salmon and just bits and pieces of other ingredients, it's extremely economical as well !
