the illustrator's . He prepared this one and the kids loved it. Growing up, they called them Salmon Patties, but to make it seem more interesting to the kids, we called them Salmon Croquettes. The illustrator asked me if I had his mom's recipe. I told him no, but that if he called her she will tell him that she goes by looks on it. She also uses saltines (I think or buttery crackers) which we can't use. So, he made bread crumbs from the gluten free bread I baked him earlier this week and they came out perfectly. I was so happy for him since he loves sharing his old favorites with the boys and he loves being able to get in the kitchen (another reason why I felt rotten snapping at him on Saturday...I want a do over for that day). Anyway, this recipe is super simple and according to the kids it's "a keeper". When you read this, the measurements on the seasonings are per the illustrator. He used the shaker stuff.Anyway, since I was really not the cook around here this weekend, I thought I would share with you a family favorite of
Salmon Patties or Croquettes
2 cups bread crumbs (we used gluten free)
2 14.75oz cans canned salmon (check for bones, Trader Joe's has bones in it, great product though)
Mix everything together well and then form into 1/4 cup patties (make sure you press them together well). Cook in a nonstick skillet for 4-5 minutes on both sides (or oil a skillet). Keep cooked patties in a 200 degree oven while the others cook.
Just before I totally crashed on Friday, I did make some gluten free banana bread. I will share that one tomorrow...
What do ya think? Patties or Croquettes?
