Kathy Queen’s husband will not eat fillet of salmon. But these salmon patties are so good, says Ms. Queen of Swanton, that he gladly eats them. We can certainly understand why: It looks like a great recipe for crab cakes, only with salmon.
1 pound fresh salmon, skin removed
¼ cup bread crumbs
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
½ fresh lemon, juiced
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
½ cup chopped red or yellow bell peppers
½ teaspoon dill
5-7 shakes Frank’s RedHot sauce
¼ cup flour
¼ cup cornmeal
Canola oil, for frying
Chop salmon in a food processor until slightly chunky. In a large bowl, mix together salmon, bread crumbs, garlilc, green onions, mayonnaise, lemon juice, egg, Old Bay, bell peppers, dill, and hot sauce. Mix together flour and cornmeal, and set aside. Shape salmon mixture into patties and dust with flour-cornmeal mix. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties until browned, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Serve with tartar sauce or fresh lemon.
Yield: 4 servings
