Has anyone ever tried fish from a can?? This will be the first time in my life. . . .Not a fan of Tuna in a can, But for lunch today, I just really wanted a crab cake. Um, so how did we get here??
Well – we are here, because I’m currently not spending my stay-cation in Ocean City, Maryland and have Blue Crab on demand. So I looked for the next best thing at the grocery store today…….Salmon in a can?? Bumble Bee Skinless & Boneless Pink Salmon – for the win??.
Can’t be that bad, right??
So I picked up a couple cans of them and ran with the idea……
So below is my take on a ‘salmon cake’ or ‘salmon burger’…..
It wasn’t bad, no ‘fish’ smell. I’ll keep this recipe in my back pocket……
- 12–14 ounces cooked salmon
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of breadcrumbs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh
- a squeeze of lemon juice
- olive oil for pan-frying
Flake the salmon apart. Mix all ingredients together and form into 4 large patties. Heat olive oil over medium heat, ideally in a nonstick skillet. Fry the burgers for a few minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy. Place on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with salt. Serve Hot, I opted for coleslaw as a side (which I just picked up from the grocery store).
Enjoy – See you in the Kitchen!
