Salmon Recipe of the day...

When you have left over Salmon do you just crumble it over a salad or
heat it up in the microwave? Why not make it into something special!

Recipe for Salmon Patties:

2 Cups of cooked or canned salmon (if using canned try wild caught salmon it is better, and use the juice when mixing) if you are using fresh not in a can salmon add an extra tablespoon of Mayonnaise...

Chop fine in a food processor the following;
Fresh Dill and Flat Leaf Parsley, Celery, Green or Red Bell Pepper and Onion, and Garlic (I use about a 1/4 cup of each of the fresh herbs and veggies, except the garlic I use about 3 cloves)

Squeeze the juice of a whole Lemon into the mixture

Add 2 fresh organic Eggs

Add a 1/4 cup of Mayonaise (remember add a little more if the salmon is not canned)

Season with Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Paprika, and dried Herbs and seasonings that you like with your fish...

Use a whole sleeve of Saltine Crackers crushed, or be creative using a sleeve of Ritz, Townhouse or any of your favorite crackers, even cheese crackers are good in this recipe, you can also use Bread Crumbs just make sure you have the equivalent to a whole sleeve of crushed crackers.

Mix all the ingredients together until you have a nice wet (not to dry) dough like mixture...

Next heat your skillet up and add a nice pat of Butter and a tablespoon of Olive Oil, once the Butter is melted and the pan is coated, make individual patties about the size of your hand or about the size you make your hamburger patties and lay them in the skillet to cook for aprox. 7 minutes or so on each side until they are browned to perfection...

Lay out your cooked Patties on a paper towel to soak up any excess grease...

Serve your Salmon Patties with fresh Corn on the Cob, Pickled Beets, Cottage Cheese, Fresh Green Salad, and Baked Seasoned Potato wedges, I am also including a recipe below for a good Tartar Sauce...

Tartar Sauce:

2 Tablespoons of Dill Pickle Relish
1 Tablespoon of dried Minced Onions
1/4 Cup of Mayonnaise

Mix this up ahead of time to give the Minced Onions time to soften, increase any of the ingredients to taste and creaminess...
You can use sweet relish and Miracle Whip if you like sweet tartar sauce...
