I love salmon. Love, love, love it. I could eat it every day, I think. My favorite way is grilled with just a little salt and pepper, but our grill is in a climate-controlled storage unit right now… Enjoying moderate temperatures instead of sucking it up and taking the heat like its fellow grills. And we are sadly without grilled food this summer. Ugh.
So, here’s something you can do with CANNED salmon. No grill required.
- 1 can of salmon, drained, with the skin and bones removed (unless you want to leave those in, you weirdo)
- 2 eggs
- 2 or 3 green onion stalks, sliced
- 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs (or any bread crumbs, crumbled crackers)
- garlic powder, season salt, black pepper to taste
- 4 T light mayonnaise
- 1 T Dijon mustard
Mix all of the ingredients and form into patties. How big you make them is really up to you. Cook them on a nonstick skillet and brown on both sides. I would guess it took about 10-15 minutes total? I’m a horrible judge of cook time because I’m always paranoid that it’s not done… so… It probably *should* be closer to the 10-minute mark.
