Easy Salmon Patties
- 15 oz. canned salmon large bones removed
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 small bell pepper finely diced
- 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp. chopped scallion
- salt to taste
- olive oil or vegetable oil for frying
Place the salmon into a medium mixing bowl, and gently flake with a fork.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix everything well.
Using a 1/2-cup as a measure, form small patties with your hands.*
IF FRYING: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat (use enough oil to generously cover the bottom of the skillet). Fry the patties for about 5 minutes on each side, until crispy and cooked through.
IF BAKING: Just drizzle some olive oil onto a large, non-stick cookie sheet, making sure that the surface is evenly covered. Arrange the salmon patties on the sheet and gently brush the tops with some oil. Bake at 425˚F for 15 minutes. Flip, and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.
