The red pepper flakes and lemon add a little zing to this recipe. These are cheap and easy yet will impress your guests!
16 oz pink salmon
1/4 cup fresh or dried parsley flakes
2 tbsp scallions
1/4 cup italian bread crumbs
Juice from 1/2 of lemon
Red pepper flakes to taste
Serve with tarter sauce or try this easy homemade sauce:
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp lemon juice
1. Prep salmon: remove skin; crush bones with thumb and index finger leaving them in for added calcium.
2. Knead together salmon with eggs, parsley, scallions, bread crumbs, lemon juice and red pepper flakes.
3. Cook in a lightly-oiled cast-iron pan over medium heat until golden brown. Serve warm, with sauce.
Yield: 4 patties
We cook these in our a cast iron pan. It's great for meat and for going to stove top straight to the oven. They are a pain to clean but a little steel wool does the job for me. I also use mason jars to store my left over sauce. I have them in all sizes but the half pint size works great for dressings and sauces. I like the plastic lids because they're easier to keep track of for every day use.
