Fresh Salmon Patties
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
Have you ever wondered what to do with leftover salmon from the warehouse store? Joni Pelta of Atlanta says, "I purchased a huge hunk of salmon at Costco. On the first night, I grilled it. On the second night, I wanted to do something else with that delicious fish and thought about the canned salmon patties I make sometimes. That's when the inspiration hit me to use fresh ingredients for salmon patties, a recipe I've seen only with canned salmon."
Fresh salmon makes a lighter, less fishy-tasting patty. Don't worry about exact amounts. This recipe is very flexible. For a fifth ingredient, you can choose a bun for a casual salmon burger, or a dollop of tartar sauce for a more elegant presentation.
