I decided that I wanted to have some salmon patties for dinner, so I figured that I would share my recipe. My recipe is slightly different than most, as I use almond meal in place of any grains. So let's see how to put it all together and then you can try it too.
My recipe uses 1 can (14.75 oz) of pink salmon, an onion, an egg, and about half a cup of almond meal. Typically, my onion and egg would come from the dumpster, although I had to go buy onions this time. I will occasionally find almond meal, but I haven't recently, so I bought some last week for the snickerdoodles and I'm going to use it for these as well.
I usually clean and slice an onion, and then grind the slices with an egg using my Sunbeam Oskar Food Chopper. In another bowl, I dump the salmon and mash it up, removing the bones if they are large.
Then, I add the egg-onion mix, and almond flour. I just used a spoon to mix/mash all these ingredients together.
Once all the ingredients are together, I get the burner ready. I usually cook my patties at a medium heat on an electric stove (if you have a gas stove, they will cook faster). I use meat fat to cook most of the time, so I cooked these using beef fat to make sure that the patties wouldn't stick to the pan. If you aren't comfortable using meat fat, or you don't like to mix flavors like that, feel free to use butter or oil.
To cook the patties, I dollop the mix onto the pan and then flatten them immediately so that they can cook in the shape of patties. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the edges look cooked and the middle does not, then flip. If you flip your salmon patties too early, they will fall apart. Cook for another 1-2 minutes or until brown.
I usually just eat my patties with a fork, but if you want to turn them into a sandwich, go for it.
