I love these! Similar to what mom use to make, but no one gets it exactly like mom!

1 can Salmon, drained, crush bones fine

1 Egg, beaten

8 Saltine Crackers, crushed fine

1 T. Dried Onions, hydrated with 1 T. water, or fresh, minced onions

1 T. (heaping) Flour

¼ tsp Dried Parsley

Canola Oil

Pre-heat oven to 350.

Line long cake pan with foil.

Add all ingredients in bowl and mix with hands. 

Pour oil in bottom of skillet to about 1/8 inch deep and heat to medium heat.
Form into six - eight round balls and place lightly in oil. (1/4 C. about right amount for each ball)

Brown about five minutes and turn and flatten out slightly. Brown five minutes on other side.

Turn off oil and place all patties in foil-lined pan. Bake 30 minutes on one side only. This will remove oil.

Serve with fried potatoes or buttered and parsley noodles with a vegetable.

Delicious cold too!

Hint: Double ingredients and enjoy leftovers or larger patties!
