Salmon Patties Help Celebrate March


Salmon Patties Perfect for Spring Menus



In celebration of St. Patties day, the Recipe Redux theme for March is patties, whether they be beef, chicken, tuna, bean, or whatever. I love salmon so I decided to make fresh salmon patties. Add, in keeping with St. Patrick's Day theme, I added dill for a bit of the green.

Fresh or frozen salmon can be used for this recipe, but I find it is best with fresh. The salmon in this recipe is chopped by hand instead of using a food processor to give the cakes a courser texture.

 Here is the recipe:

Dilly Salmon Patties

Ingredients:

1 pound fresh or frozen (thawed) salmon fillet, pinbones and skin removed if needed

1 slice whole wheat bread, crusts removed and discarded, chopped fine

2 tablespoons lowfat mayonnaise

¼ cup finely chopped green onion

1 lemon, divided (1/2 used for juice; other half cut into wedges for garnish)

2 tablespoons fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried dill

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup white wheat flour

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup panko bread crumbs

2 tablespoons canola oil


Directions:

Line a baking sheet with foil. Set aside.

Cut salmon with knife into pieces about ¼-inch in size. In medium bowl, combine chopped salmon, bread, mayonnaise, onion, lemon juice from half a lemon, dill, and salt. Using a ¼-cup dry measure, make 6 patties and place them on the foil-lined baking sheet or plate. Freeze the patties for about 15 minutes.

Dip each patty into flour, then egg, and, lastly, the panko bread crumbs. Heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the patties. Cook about 3 minutes on each side. You will likely need to cook the patties in two batches, depending on the size of the skillet. Serve with lemon wedges.

Makes 6 servings.
