We’ve just spent the summer catching Salmon in Alaska. Now we are traveling the US in a teardrop camper and cooking on a camp stove. Our mission is to explore ways to eat salmon while cooking on a 2-burner stove with two small frying pans. So, naturally, we make a lot of homemade salmon patties.
Salmon Patties are one of our first successes.
Salmon patties are kind of like hamburger patties. As pescatarians with a copious amount of freshly caught salmon on hand, we are excited to explore all the ways one can enjoy salmon patties instead of burger (sliders anyone?). But for today, we want to focus on something simple. Salmon patties dipped in cocktail sauce and served up hot.
- The Patties:
- 1 diced onion
- 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
- 2 cans of Salmon
- 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs
- 2 egg
- The Fry:
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (to fry the patties) or other favorite frying oil, like vegetable oil
- Cocktail Sauce
- Horse radish
Step 1: Make the patties
First, mix the onion, garlic, and salmon together in a bowl. Add bread crumbs and egg. Mix well.
Step 2: Fry the patties
Pop those patties into a frying pan with a quarter inch of oil on the bottom.
Fry up until they are brown and crispy.
Step 3. Make the Cocktail Sauce
Two simple ingredients: ketchup and horseradish
Mix the two in a bowl until it reaches your preferred level of spicy…more horseradish = more kick. more ketchup = more tame.
