If you've been keeping up with the saga of my broken foot, we're almost to the end of the story. I am once again vertical (after11 weeks!) and tonight was the first night I've been able to stand and cook supper from start to finish!
To reward Sweet Harold for all his hard work in taking care of me and the house and the cooking, cleaning, laundry......I made one of his favorites: Salmon Patties. For this meal, I seasoned with Old Bay seasoning. These were delicious!
2 large cans boneless/skinless salmon (drained and flaked)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 T. chopped parsley
2 t. Old Bay Seasoning
1 t. minced garlic
3 T. self-rising flour
In a medium bowl, lightly mix first six ingredients with a fork until well blended.
In a large skillet, add enough vegetable oil to have a depth of about 1/4 inch. Heat over high heat until oil shimmers.
Shape salmon mixture into equal sized patties. With this amount, I usually have 7 or 8 patties. Lower heat to medium-high and fry salmon patties in batches, turning when one side is golden brown, about 3 - 4 minutes each side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
