Today I had a yearning flung on me, so on the way home I stopped to pick up the fixings for one of my favorite foods from my childhood. Salmon Croquettes. Momma used to fix these occasionally, and I loved them then, I love them now. They're fairly easy.
1 can pink salmon - 14.75 oz
1 roll Ritz crackers
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 large egg
Salt and pepper, of course
In a large bowl, crush the whole roll of Ritz crackers. Powder them. Add the salmon, the chopped onion and the egg. Salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into six portions and form into patties. Fry in a flat skillet with a little oil until golden brown.
I'm going to serve them tonight with potatoes au gratin and steamed broccoli.
Friends from the PacNorWest might turn their noses up at canned salmon, but it's easy to find here, inexpensive, and with just a little preparation makes a darned fine meal.
