This is one of my favorite dinners. I like it with a bit of heat, and a little toasted. It's nice and a bit creamy when you bite into it though. Another plus: very budget friendly. Serves 4.
3 5 oz cans boneless flaked salmon, drained
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs (plain or seasoned, your choice)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used Fat Free Miracle Whip, but use what you wish!)
1 tbsp parsley
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (more if you are so inclined)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 375F.
Dump the bread crumbs, parsley, cayenne pepper, black pepper, paprika and garlic powder into a mixing bowl. Use a fork or a whisk to mix it up. Add then the mayonnaise and egg and mix thoroughly. Lastly, add the salmon and mix well, making sure everything is well incorporated.
I like to line a cookie sheet with some aluminum foil and then spray it with nonstick spray, but you don't have to. It just makes cleanup easier and makes your sheet last longer.
Now make patties with your salmon mixture. Form it into a ball and smoosh it down, smoothing out the edges, and set on the cookie sheet. Will make about 10-11 patties. Stick it in the oven for about 25 minutes.
About 3 points per 2 patties. My kids love this too! And so does my husband! So, it's a win-win!
