My husbands grandmother loved salmon patties and often made them for the family. My mother never made salmon patties and I first tried these at my in laws house. Now our house is the third generation that makes salmon patties for our children. I hope you try these tasty patties and see what you think. Salmon is healthy for your family and best of all makes into nice sandwiches. Enjoy!!
6 oz. can skinless/boneless pink salmon, drained
2 T. diced onion
good pinch each of salt and pepper
1 large egg
1 T. buttermilk
2 T. cornmeal
4 T. all purpose flour
Veg. oil for frying
In a bowl, combine the salmon, onion, salt and pepper. Stir in the egg, buttermilk, cornmeal and flour. Combine well.
Heat about 1/4" oil in the bottom of a med. size iron skillet over med. high heat. Drop spoonfuls of the salmon mixture into the hot oil and flatten out just a tad. Fry, in batches, about a minute per side or until golden brown.
Drain on a paper sack or paper towel lined plate. Makes 10 patties.
