Recipe by Bill Harrison
Makes two to four patties, depending upon size and ingredient ratios.
1 can Alaskan Red or Chinook Salmon
Cream or prepared horseradish
Plain yogurt or sour cream
1 small stick celery
1/4TH small onion
Panko or traditional bread crumbs.
Mix 1 egg with a heaping tablespoon of yogurt or sour cream in a medium bowl. Add seasonings to taste, salmon and diced vegetables. Stir in Panko or breadcrumbs until mix begins to cake. Form into patties by hand, usually on some wax paper. It can be difficult to find the right consistency of mix for patties to hold together. Id recommend starting with the mix a bit wet, then slowly adding Panko until it seems right. Patties can be baked in the oven for 20 minutes or so, turning once, at around 350 or pan fried in oil. If the latter is chosen, Id recommend dropping the formed patties in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes, as the cold will help them hold together when adding to the pan. This is a non-issue if baking as they may be formed right on the baking dish. Serve either as a traditional burger or on a bed of greens.
