This recipe is from last night's supper. I didn't get it posted because we took our little man to the park, which quickly turned into a disaster! We had planned on playing on the playground, riding his bike, and doing a little fishing. After playing on the playground, we got his bike out of the car, and started down one of the walking paths. We came to one with rose bushes on both sides of the path. Immediately, my brain went into "Mommy mode" but before I could say anything, one of his training wheels went slightly off the path, which made him fall right on top of one of the rose bushes! Needless to say, that was the end of our park trip. He had about 6 stickers in him, and by the time we pulled all of them out, he was ready to go home. Poor little guy, as we were pulling out of the park, in the midst of his crying, he says "We come back tomorrow". I could have cried for him.
Anyway, back to the SALMON PATTIES. This is a recipe I have been making since my husband and I got married. It is one of our favorites. I hope you enjoy!
1 large pouch pink salmon
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup mayo
1 tbs. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
1/4 tsp. garlic seasoned salt or garlic powder
dash of hot sauce
1 egg, beaten
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs, divided
In a bowl, combine bell pepper, onion, mayo, lemon juice, salts and hot sauce. Stir in salmon, egg and 1/3 cup of the bread crumbs. (you may need more if your egg is extra large) Divide and for into 4 balls. Roll salmon balls in remaining bread crumbs; flatten into patties about 1/2 inch thick. In skillet, heat evoo over medium heat. Fry salmon patties 5-6 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
*I usually serve this with fried potatoes, and macaroni and tomatoes.
