Did you eat Salmon Patties as a kid?? We did... and I LOVED them! My favorite part?? The bones! HAHA... I know... disgusting, huh?! But it's true... those little round bones are so cool and flavorful. And trust me, that's about the only animal bone I get anywhere near.
These are so good and so easy. Yes, you have to fry them, so they are probably not so healthy. But, sometimes, good trumps healthy, ha!
1 can salmon
1 cup white onion, chopped
1/2 cup corn meal
1/4 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
kosher salt to top
Empty can of salmon into medium sized bowl, add salt and pepper to taste.
Mix in chopped onions.
Add egg and stir until combined.
Add flour and corn meal together.
Mix by hand until well combined. You may need to add more flour and corn meal if it's too wet.
Form into patties, 1 can should give you 8 patties.
Heat oil, enough to come up about half way on each patty. When oil is good and hot (do the water or onion test), place 4 patties in. Cook about 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and crispy. Immediately upon removal, sprinkle with kosher salt.
