Ingredients

  • 10 ounces canned pink salmon boneless and skinless, drained
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs divided
  • olive oil or your preferred oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Add enough oil to cover the bottom of a large nonstick skillet to a depth of 1/4 inch.  Preheat the pan with the oil on medium heat while you prepare the salmon.

  2. Combine the salmon, the eggs, and 1/2 cup of Italian breadcrumbs.  Stir thoroughly until the mixture is well combined.  Pour the 1/2 cup of remaining breadcrumbs on a plate.

  3. Form the mixture into round patties about the size of the center of your palm.  Place the formed patty on the breadcrumbs on the plate; pat gently to make the breadcrumbs stick, then flip and pat the other side into the breadcrumbs.

  4. Slip each patty gently into the pan.  Fry on one side for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cooked side is golden brown.  Flip the patty and fry the other side the same way.

  5. When both sides are golden brown, remove to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Serve warm.
