Salmon patties or croquettes are easy to prepare. Follow the step-by-step instructions given below for making them.
Step 1: Drain the can of salmon and remove the bones. Take the salmon in a medium sized mixing bowl, and add the beaten egg to it. Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and ¼ cup of milk to the mixture and mix well. The lemon juice is used here to get rid of the fishy smell of salmon.
Step 2: Add about half a box of seasoned stuffing mix or any other seasoning of your choice to the fish. Mix well, and add an additional amount of the stuffing mix if required for the mixture to attain the desired consistency. Make sure the salmon mixture sticks together while forming the patties. You can use breadcrumbs to help bind the mixture as well.
Tip: Add some variation to this dish by using different flavors of the stuffing mix.
Step 3: Heat olive oil or any other cooking oil (sufficient amount for frying) in a large frying pan. Form the salmon mixture into equal sized patties. Add the patties to the hot oil and fry on medium heat, until they turn nice and golden brown.
Step 4: Once the patties are done, drain on a paper towel and add a topping of light, cream sauce to make them taste even more delicious. Serve with a salad, rice dish, and toasted French bread.
