So, my intent was to try Salmon Patties, but due to cooking with a baby on my hip, or whatever I did wrong with the recipe, they did not form patties, so I just did a Salmon 'crumble'. Again, a reminder that I do not follow recipes nor do I measure anything...consider yourself warned!
Here's the basics:
1 can pink Salmon(recipe called for 2 cans tuna, but I don't do tuna...)
1 6oz box stove top mix
couple celery stalks
1/2 shredded cheddar
2 T pickle relish
1/3 c water
1/3 c carrots
So, scratch most of that..I used what I had readily available, and it was tasty...Nice to cook from the stockpile!
I actually made up my own dressing mix because I don't buy stove-top...I dried some cubed wheat bread in the oven, let it cool, then added sage & thyme.
I took half of that and added it to the flaked, drained salmon. All the while I was sauteeing the diced onion & celery in a little butter til it was transparent. I added the relish, sauteed onion & celery, & mayo to the bread & salmon, and I threw some Parmesan in there(sounded good!), stirred it up. I let this sit in thefridge until my hubby was almost home from work. I sprayed a pan with nonstick cooking spray, then I attempted the patties, but upon realizing they were not cooperating, I just tossed all the mix into the pan and cooked til heated through and a little browned, about 6-7 minutes. I served a couple serving spoonfuls of this on a bed of rice, with lovely green salad...voila! Easy, cheap(maybe $3-$4?) and we have leftovers for tonight! I think for the leftovers I may spice things up, literally, with a bit of chili powder, and maybe throw it back in a skillet for a couple minutes to crisp it up again!
