Salmon Patty Burgers
I look for ways to add fish to our family diet, and salmon is a good way and inexpensive as well and these really taste good.
Makes 8 Patties
5 small potatoes
2 can of salmon, drained and flaked
1 celery stick, finely chopped
1 small white onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon grill seasoning, (recommended: Montreal Seasoning by McCormick)
1 tablespoon of fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 teaspoon of lemon rind, grated
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 cup of plain flour
1 egg, beaten lightly
2 tablespoons of milk
2 cups of breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
Boil, steam, or microwave potatoes until tender and then drain them well. Place in medium bowl, mash using fork or potato masher until smooth.
Drain salmon well, remove skin and bones from the fish. Add to bowl, mash using fork mixing with the potatoes Add bread crumbs, celery, onion, parsley, lemon rind and juice, add seasoning, mixing all the ingredients thoroughly together with a fork. Cover, refrigerate for 30 minutes to make mixture easier to handle.
Divide salmon mixture evenly into 8 portions. A simple way is to form mixture into a large circle and divide into 8 wedges. Shape each portion into patty
Place patties into preheated frying pan which has been oiled, cooking them in batches. Cook them for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain any excess oil with paper towels.
Serve on buns with your favorite toppings, we like to add cheese, onions pickles, even tarter sauce
Try them your way. Enjoy
