Famous Recipes – Salmon Patties

Just mix salmon in a bowl with 1 or 2 eggs, depending on how much salmon you have.

Either canned or fresh.  Chopped onion, chopped garlic, cracker crumbs, seasonings depend on what you like.  I put paprika, parsley, dill weed, lemon pepper, cayenne pepper, salt.  Lemon zest is good and maybe a couple tbs of lemon juice.  Form it into patties and then fry it in hot oil until it’s brown on both sides.
