One of my readers recommended this Betty Crocker recipe for Salmon patties (thanks Goodfountain!). I finally made them last Friday and they turned out great. My husband gave the meal a thumbs up, which he doesn’t always do with new fish dishes.
I served it with guacamole, hamburger buns, fruit and salad. Little D dipped his salmon cake pieces in the guacamole and Big A ate the guacamole, fruit and bread (shocker!). Although she continues to say salmon is one of her favorite foods.
Overall, a nice change for fish night. I think next time I’ll double the recipe and freeze some. These patties would be perfect topped on a salad for a quick and easy lunch or as a snack.
Serves: 4 Patties
-1 cup bread crumbs
-1/2 cup Bisquick Heart Smart® mix
-1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
-8 medium green onions, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
-2 eggs, slightly beaten
-1 can (14 3/4 oz) red salmon (I used 2 smaller cans), skin and bone removed, drained and flaked
-2 tablespoons butter
-4 whole wheat burger buns
– Lettuce leaves
-4 tablespoons dill dip, ranch dip or guacamole
1. In a bowl mix all ingredients except the butter, buns, lettuce and dip. Shape mixture into 4 patties (about 1/2 cupfuls per patty).
2. In a nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat and add the patties cooking for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, until brown and cooked through (mine almost burned so watch out).
3. Make into sandwiches with dip and lettuce or eat by itself. Enjoy!
