One of my readers recommended this Betty Crocker recipe for Salmon patties (thanks Goodfountain!). I finally made them last Friday and they turned out great. My husband gave the meal a thumbs up, which he doesn’t always do with new fish dishes.
I served it with guacamole, hamburger buns, fruit, and salad. Little D dipped his salmon cake pieces in the guacamole and Big A ate the guacamole, fruit, and bread (shocker!). Although she continues to say salmon is one of her favorite foods.
Overall, a nice change for fish night. I think next time I’ll double the recipe and freeze some. These patties would be perfect topped on a salad for a quick and easy lunch or as a snack.
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- ½ cup Bisquick Heart Smart® mix
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 8 medium green onions, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 can (14¾ oz) red salmon (I used 2 smaller cans), skin and bone removed, drained and flaked
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 whole wheat burger buns
- Lettuce leaves
- 4 tablespoons dill dip, ranch dip or guacamole
- In a bowl mix all ingredients except the butter, buns, lettuce, and dip. Shape mixture into 4 patties (about ½ cupfuls per patty).
- In a nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat and add the patties cooking for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, until brown and cooked through (mine almost burned so watch out).
- Make into sandwiches with dip and lettuce or eat by itself. Enjoy!
