When I was young, these would often be the star of a meal or a side to one. We would have them with buttered potatoes and green beans or with soup beans, cornbread, and wieners and kraut. Besides being a great budget-friendly protein, canned salmon has great health benefits too! It’s high in protein, rich in omega-3 heart healthy fats, high in potassium and B vitamins…just to name a few. My daughter hadn’t eaten these until the night I made them last week. Let’s just say, she liked them so much that she had 3. 4oz costs a mere .81 cents! Talk about an affordable, yummy protein!
Servings: 10 servings
- 14.75 oz can pink salmon
- 5 saltines crushed
- 1 egg
- 2-3 tablespoon oil
- To a medium bowl, add salmon, saltines, and the egg. Break apart the salmon with the back of a fork, and blend the ingredients until it’s a cohesive mix.
- Heat oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, drop the salmon in 3 tablespoon size patties, and gently pat to flatten. Cook 4-5 minutes per side, then remove to a serving dish.
