After all the rich food of the Christmas season, I thought it would be nice to share a homey meal of salmon patties with the readers today. This is my mother’s recipe, and quite frankly, I love it so much that I always put a few patties aside for breakfast. I even eat them cold. As kids, and when I could eat more carbs, these were served with white rice and gravy made from the oil and patty drippings left in the pan. Nowadays I choose a more carb friendly side.
I hope you’ll enjoy these salmon patties from the kitchen of Catherine Castle
1 can 15 oz. can of pink salmon, drained. Bones and skin included in recipe
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup finely diced onion.
1 cup finely diced celery
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal.
Drain salmon, leaving bones and skin in bowl. Add eggs and veggies and mix well. Add cornmeal and mix well.
Heat 1-2 TB oil in skillet until it shimmers. Form patties using a 2-inch diameter spoon and fry in oil until golden brown on both sides. It may take 2 batches to cook all patties and you may need to add a bit more oil as patties cook. Keep patties warm in oven while 2nd batch cooks.
