The Jabberwock recently cooked a Really Big Fish . There was a decent amount of leftover meat – what to do ! I found this recipe on Grant Wilson’s blog, and adapted it a bit. I have never actually tasted or cooked a salmon patty, and I have to say these were DELISH.
Klickitat River Salmon Patties
1 lb. cooked salmon, shredded, bones removed
1 onion finely diced
1 large celery stalk finely diced
1/2 large red pepper, finely diced
1 carrot, grated
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp. corn meal
1 Tbsp. flour
Kosher salt and cracked pepper to taste
NOTE: You can substitute grated Parmesan cheese for the flour and corn meal (you may need a little more). I just didn’t have any on hand.
Sautee onion, celery, pepper and carrot in a small amount of olive oil. Add to shredded salmon. Add egg, corn meal, and flour (or Parmesan cheese) and mix well. Fry patties in a non stick pan over medium heat until browned on both sides. Leftovers keep very well!
