Easy Salmon Patties - Recipe

Looking for an easy to make and healthy treat? Look no further than Salmon Patties. They will have you and your family asking for more.
What you need:

- 2 cans of Salmon (boneless/Wild Caught)
- 10 Saltine Crackers
- 1 egg (helps hold the patties together)
- 1 tbsp Mayonnaise (helps keep the patties from getting too dry)
- 1/4 tsp of Pepper
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1/4 tsp Dill
- 1/4 cup chopped Spinach (optional – I thaw out organic frozen spinach I try to sneak extra veggies in everything)

Open up you two cans of Salmon and drain. Put the salmon in a mixing bowl. Next put your saltine crackers in a sandwich bag. Make sure you close it up good and put the bag down on the counter. Using your fist or kitchen utensil crush up the bag of crackers until you get a fine sand like consistency. Add the crackers to the bowl with the salmon.

In a separate bowl crack open your egg and beat with a fork. Add the beaten egg to the bowl with the salmon, crackers and spinach if using. Mix together the 4 ingredients in the bowl together. Add the mayonnaise and mix again. Now we can take care of adding the seasonings. Add the pepper, salt and dill (if you don’t like dill, you can substitute lemon pepper) to the salmon mixture. Mix well. You can let that sit in the bowl for a minute.

Next, grab a skillet and coat it evenly with cooking spray (canola oil works the best). Place it on your burner and turn up the heat to Medium/High. Using an ice cream scoop (if you don’t have one a large spoon will work too), scoop up the salmon mixture, creating 4 different patties and place in the skillet. Once in the skillet, use a spatula to flatten the patties down a little and shape them as needed.

Cook the patties for 10 minutes total, flipping each one at the half way point. Take off heat and serve with your favorite side dishes. Enjoy!
