Salmon Patties

By now y'all must think all I do is travel and poor Bill can't get a homemade meal without going to Mom's house.

Well, you are almost right!

I decided that I'd better get in the kitchen and make his favorite salmon patties... before the shipment of ceramic pottery arrives from Orvieto.

Salmon Patties
1 large can salmon
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 onion, diced
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbs butter
1 Tbs creole seasoning
1 sleeve ritz, crushed
olive oil

Drain salmon and pick out the bones (or buy boneless!) Saute onion in butter until tender. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Stirring to blend. Form into large patties.

Coat the bottom of a skillet with olive oil. In a hot pan, brown the patties on each side for 3-5 minutes.
Serve with a salad and you will have a quick home cooked meal in minutes.

Y'all know the fastest way to a man's heart!

You're back?!!! I haven't been by in awhile, I have such a hard time visiting everyone. Looks like a wonderful time & I'm still So jealous of that trip. I just love, love Italy. Oh, and a hot air balloon ride for your 50th! HOw cool is that. I loved all the pics of the cappuccinos too...and we have the same frother. I just love mine. They do make some great coffee (caffe) in Italy don't they?! I know you loved it...

Talk to you soon. We need to get together again!

YUM! These sound so good ~ I'm going to try it! I'm going to share recipe this with my Mom, too - she's been making crabcake patties lately and this sounds like a good switch! (PS - do you ever eat fishcakes (cod cakes) with beans when you're in New England? Good ol' Yankee meal. lol)

Thank you for your comment on my blog today! =)

When I see salmon patties, I start getting all nostalgic. My grandmother used to make those for me when I was a kid. Luckily, one of my college friends loved them too. We made them for dinner all the time when we were in school! :)

Sandi - I've enjoyed reading your blog, your trip to Italy sounded wonderful. Between you, Jerry, & Palma you get a well rounded Trip Report.

Can't wait to see your pottery from Orvieto, hope you post some photos.

I've never made salmon patties before but this looks easy and I think I'll give it a try.

Just hearing about these brings back memories. My mom used to cook these for us and they were so delicious. I may just have to fix us up a batch of these soon. Thanks!

Oh, she would also add something to it and serve it over rice. That was good too.

um um um...I'm headed to the kitchen...I know there's a can of Salmon in the pantry and I'm gonna cook up some grits and roll out a coupla biscuits and we're in for a treat! Thanks for the recipe!

My favorite thing in the world - Salmon Patties - you know, I have made them with tuna and they taste the same and I have also baked them in the oven and they are very good - but of course, the first best way is to fry those suckers until they are almost black - I eat them like cookies at room temp all day long!!!!!

Mandie said...

Sounds fantastic!! Have a great day!

We like salmon too. I know you are glad to be home but loved your trip......Mary

I was so excited... while mon mari was in hospital, I found a can of salmon at the store (He remembers too many Friday's at Catholic school to eat it now).
No Ritz, but I made some darn good salmon patties... and ate them all myself... sigh.... The first in far too many years.
