Southern-Style Salmon Patties

Salmon Patties are one of those 1950's-style foods that never really seems to fade away.  The patties are quick to make and can be served on a plate or, if you have kids who are a little too picky when it comes to fish, just announce these as Krabby Patties and serve them on a bun and your kids will love them.

There are many different recipes for Salmon Patties but this is a great starter recipe.  If you like foods a little more spicy, add the optional cayenne pepper, or add a 1/2 teaspoon of fresh dill to the mixture.

2 (14 3/4 ounce) cans Canned Salmon, drained and all bones removed
2 Green Onions, finely minced
1/2 cup Yellow Cornmeal
1/2 cup Flour
2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 tsp  Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp  Black Pepper
1/2 tsp  Ground Cayenne (optional but adds a nice little kick)
2 Eggs
3 TB Mayonnaise
Canola Oil for Frying

Place drained salmon in a mixing bowl and flake evenly with a fork, making sure to remove any bones.

Add all remaining ingredients and stir until well blended. Shape the mixture by hand into patties about the size of an average burger. We ended up with 8 patties, but these can be made larger or smaller.

Heat 1/4 inch of canola oil in skillet over medium-high heat, add patties and brown until crispy, about 5 minutes. Carefully turn patties and brown on the other side for about 4 minutes.  Place patties on paper towel lined plate to drain.  Serve with cocktail sauce or tarter sauce.
