Round Four - What's Cookin', Good Lookin'

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Heard on SparkPeople radio not long ago that we should be eating fish two times per week. Fish is expensive in my opinion, and we don't have it very often. I'm making a commitment to serving it once a week.

Searching for good, inexpensive recipes to add to my repertoire. Here is the good news, bad news on this salmon patty recipe.

Canned Pink Salmon Patties

Here they are cooking...

And here is my delicious, super healthy dinner...

(This is one serving. The recipe serves 4. I made them into 8 small patties)

I made a couple changes to the recipe. I used four green onions instead of white onion because I had some in the fridge that needed to be used. I skipped the bell pepper and doubled the seasoning (it just felt right).

These were quick, easy and inexpensive. I loved them. The kids loved them. The husband despised them. He actually used the word "despise". I think he has some repressed childhood memory involving a salmon patty. I asked him if he would try them with tuna and he said yes. Will give that a go in a couple weeks.

If you like salmon patties, try these. The old bay seasoning and chili powder really gave them flavor. I'm looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow!

    Isn't it funny how some people just REALLY dislike something? But they actually look great and that's good at least your kids liked them!

    Thanks, Amanda, for the review. My family really likes salmon loaf made with canned salmon. I make it once or twice a month. Might try patties for something different next time. Wheat germ works really well in the salmon loaf, substituted for half the bread crumbs for extra nutrition. They make me leave out the onion, as we have several non-onion eaters in our family. With the patties, maybe I could do some with and some without!! Thanks for the idea. -Marsha

    Ooh, I love all kinds of fish cakes as does my husband. I'll definitely have to give these a shot. Thanks for sharing!

    These look really good! I have my own recipe for tuna patties and they're really delicious but I'd like to try them with salmon. Unfortunately we don't have canned salmon here. I may try it with frozen fillets that I'll cook first. But as you said, too expensive!
