Salmon Patties

There seems to be so much hype in the news today about how healthy Salmon is for us that I thought I would post my salmon patties recipe here. I think it's one of the most reasonable meals you can put together and if you brown them nice and crispy even the kids will enjoy them. You could also serve them on a bun with Mayo and lettuce. The tender little rows of bones can actually be crushed right in for more nutritional value or easily removed if you prefer to.

1 can wild Alaskan salmon
1 package of saltine crackers, crushed
1 small minced onion
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp parsley flakes
1 Tbs. Lemon juice
1 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2tsp pepper

Drain Salmon and section it down the middle
to remove tiny bones if desired.
Take a fork and mash salmon in a medium bowl.
Add everything but crushed crackers and mix well.
Add crackers in and blend well with your hands.

Preheat enough oil to crisp both sides of
patties over medium heat in a large frypan.
Form into smooth burger style patties with your hands.
Fry on one side until brown and crispy.
carefully flip them over and brown the other side.
Turn fire down and cook a couple more
minutes on each side until centers are set.

Serve plain or with a sauce of your choice that goes well with fish.
