Fish is a healthy protein, but it can be pretty pricey too. This recipe uses canned salmon, which is very affordable. It’s a great source of Omega-3 and it’s low in mercury (for more info on mercury in fish go here). A lot of cans of salmon have a salmon patty recipe on them, I use the can’s recipe and tweak it a little. Here’s my tweaked version:
- 1 (14.75 oz.) can of salmon
- 2 eggs beaten
- 2/3 cup bread crumbs
- lemon pepper (or any seasoning you like)
- oil for frying
Mix all the ingredients except the oil. Form into patties (I usually get 3 large patties out of one can). Heat up a small amount of oil in a pan then cook the patties in it. Once the patties are golden brown on the bottom, flip and cook on the other side.
You can eat these just as is, on top of a salad or as a sandwich (that’s our favorite way).
