This recipe works just as well for tuna patties.
- 1 can 415gram Salmon
- 2-3 Small - Medium Potatoes
- 1 Egg
- Fresh parsley (or dried)
- Cracked pepper
- 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup Plain flour
- Olive oil
- Cook, mash potatoes (no extras) and cool to at least room temperature.
- Open and drain the salmon. Clean all the skin and bones out. Break into smaller pieces but not too fine.
- Put both potato and salmon to a bowl adding the egg, some pepper and chopped parsley. Mix until combined and egg is well distributed.
- In a fry pan heat enough oil to cover the bottom to shallow fry, medium-high heat. Roughly divide mixture into portions of 8. Wet your hands lightly then take a portion and roll into a ball, lightly patting into a patty then lightly dusting with the flour/crumb combination.
- Place in the oil and repeat for all 8 patties until golden brown. Flip carefully at half way. Add more oil if needed. Place on paper towel to drain.
- Serve immediately. We usually have with a salad.
This is a pretty easy recipe that has some give and take. There are always variables, the size of potatoes, the size of eggs just adjust to your needs. These are a basic cook item you are just heating up, cooking the egg through and browning the pattie. I don't always use both flour and crumbs sometimes I use just wholemeal flour but either flour will work. This is a nice cheap meal. You can substitute the salmon for tuna. Use flaked salmon steaks or other flaked and cooked fish. I usually do potato earlier in the day and just prepare the rest near dinner time.
