Salmon Rice Patties

This special recipe came from our daughter-in-love, Kym.  She grew up eating salmon patties...made with rice...instead of the usual cracker crumbs many of us enjoyed.

(This is another yummy recipe found in my cookbook.)

We all know eating fish is good for us, and a great way to get those Omega - 3's.

It's simple and delicious.  It mixes/fries up for a quick meal anytime.

Kym now uses the 'envelopes' of salmon, like tuna, that has all the skin and bone removed.

We lived in Alaska for 8 years and enjoyed lots and lots of salmon. Hubby and his fishing buddy canned much of it too and we often enjoyed salmon patties or salmon salad.

Nothing ever quite compares to fresh!

But this is still a very tasty and nutritious meal.

Please give it a try and let me know what you think.


SALMON - RICE PATTIES 

1 - 16 ozs. can salmon, drained, flaked, skin and bones removed
3 c. rice, cooked (or less?)
2 eggs

OR....

1 - 5 ozs. envelope salmon (already cleaned)
1 - 2 c. rice, cooked
1 egg

Mix ingredients together. Preheat skillet and melt a little butter in it or simply spray with Pam. Make patties and fry until browned and heated through.

Add another egg (or an egg white) if you need more 'glue' to hold it together.
