Tinned salmon is something I always have in the house. It's a very versatile ingredient and something which we both love. It's great in sandwiches and pate's . . . in casseroles, on it's own, in salads, etc. One of my favourite ways of using it is to make these delicious salmon patties!
Yes, that is boxed mac and cheese . . . don't judge me. Sometimes you just gotta have what you gotta have. To me it's comfort in a box. Yes, homemade mac and cheese is infinitely better tasting and probably better for you . . . but sometimes you just gotta go for the box. ☺
These are simple and go together very quickly. They also use things that I normally have in my cupboard and fridge. They're also delicious! I normally serve them with my Lemon Butter Sauce or with Creamed Peas. Both go very well. This is good old fashioned home cooking at it's simplest and tastiest.
*Salmon Patties*Serves 3 to 4
pinch black pepper
Beat the eggs. Beat in the cream, cornmeal, spring onions, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Flake the salmon into the mixture. Melt a knob of butter in a large skillet, over medium heat. Once it begins to foam, using a dessert spoon scoop out the salmon mixture into the hot butter. Spread out a bit. Cook for about five minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve hot.
This is equally good with a salad on the side. I sometimes serve them in the summer with potato or macaroni salad on the side. Fried potatoes are also an excellent accompaniment, as is mash.
