Salmon Balls

Salmon balls or salmon patties are delicious for dinner and Super Simple to make. Here's how you do it.

2 cans of canned salmon
2 packages of saltine crackers
2 eggs

Mix ingredients together until you have a nice mash.

Then using your hands, squish patties (just like hamburgers) and fry on a cast iron pan that's coated with olive oil until the outsides turn golden brown - or for about 3 minutes on each side.  You can salt and pepper to your own taste. But, I like to squeeze fresh lemon on my patties.

Serve with rice and creamed spinach...at least that's how I like to serve them. Super healthy and tasty.

EZ Cooking and healthy too!

I like salmon. I like meatballs. Sounds like a match made in heaven! I shall endeavor to try this sometime, Kim. I'm especially intrigued by the saltine crackers. Will be interesting to try them in lieu of panko or regular breadcrumbs.

I make something similar only no crackers. I use garlic onions and stuff like that. And make both burgers and meatballs. Fun to do.

BUT, back when I lived on the cost I did this with fresh fish - so flipping good. YUM!

David: If you try 'em - let me know what you think.

THW: I sometimes add garlic and onions, but honestly I prefer them simple with only lemon squeezed on the top. Can't beat EZ ;D

If the salmon is fresh, I like simple as well. But the canned stuff for me anyway, needs a little help. But yeah, overall, I agree, simple is better. By far.
