- 1 oz canned salmon
- ¼ cup onion, finely grated
- 2 tbsp minced basil or parsley
- ¼ to ½ tsp ground black pepper
- 2 large eggs
- 1 to 1½ cups ground whole wheat cracker crumbs / bread crumbs
- ¼ cup ground flax seeds
- 2 tbsp olive oil
Drain the salmon and place in a bowl, while reserving the liquid separately. Use a fork to separate or flake the fish. Mix in grated onion, chopped basil or parsley and pepper. Next, add two beaten eggs and blend until fish gets thoroughly moistened.
Mix ½ cup of ground cracker crumbs or bread crumbs and ¼ cup of ground flax seed. Mix the crumbs into the salmon mixture until the consistency is thick enough to form patties.
If the mixture feels too dry, add reserved salmon liquid, two tablespoons at a time; if too wet add more crumbs. Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, so that the mixture chills and sets.
Remove from the refrigerator and roll mixture into balls. Next, flatten into round patties lightly. Coat each patty with bread crumbs.
In a skillet, heat olive oil until it sizzles; lower heat and add patties. When the edges of the patties start to turn brown, gently flip and brown the other side two to three minutes.
Serve warm with ketchup or top with grated cheese.
