A salmon patty by any other name…
2 (14.75 ounce) cans pink salmon, drained
1 cup bread crumbs (use panko for a lighter touch)
2 scallions, green part only, minced
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon salt
2 – 4 tablespoons oil
Mash salmon well (do not discard bones). Mix with all remaining ingredients except oil. Heat oil in a large skillet over a medium heat. Form salmon mixture into patties and fry until brown – about 5 minutes per side. Serve warm or at room temperature. Although I am offering them with a red pepper coulis, they are also really good with that other vegetable – ketchup!
Red Pepper Coulis
3 roasted red bell peppers (you can purchase them already roasted)
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (use a good quality one if you have)
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Using a food processor, purée all ingredients. Keep refrigerated.
