There... don't you feel better, knowing that your pantry looks so much nicer than mine?
Okay, I showed you mine.... so it's your turn now.
Hmmmm... tried to enlarge these, but they won't.
Oh well, I may not be good... but I had good intentions.
At least someone will be using a lawn mower around here !!!
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 !
Maybe we'll just cook, instead.
Just don't tell the kids.
Oh, that isn't what you had in mind?
Then how about this one?
