Salmon Patties with Homemade Tatar Sauce

Salmon patties are one of my families "stand by" favorites. We have eaten them for years. I first learned to make these when I got married and my mother-in-law made them for us on one of our visits to her home. I loved them immediately. They were easy and delicious....which was right up my alley. Give them a try...I think you'll like them too. I serve them with my homemade tarter sauce and we very seldom have anything left over...this meal disappears in a hurry.

Salmon Patties
2 cans of Salmon, drained and de-boned (you don't have to take the bones out if you don't want to, they are soft and
   won't hurt you...but I just don't like the looks of them or the skin in my patty...but you choose)
4 eggs
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. onion powder
1 t. season salt
1/2 t. pepper
2 c. oatmeal

After de-boning your salmon, mix all ingredient together in a bowl by using a large wooden spoon or your hands (I use my hands because it's easier to mix that way). Put a small amount of oil in a frying pan and heat. Make patties by using the same technique that you would when making hamburger patties. Place patties in hot pan and cook for about 15 minutes, flipping periodically so they won't burn (just like a burger). Serve on a bun (if you like) or as the main course with potatoes and a salad...serve them however your family will eat them. 

*Yield: approximately 8-10 patties depending on the size that you make them...BUT this recipe can easily be cut in half to make a smaller batch.

*Don't let the "fish" part of this dish make you turn your nose up at this recipe...Salmon Patties taste a lot better than they sound...they really do. 

Homemade Tartar Sauce

1 c. mayonnaise (not salad dressing!)
1/3 c. lemon juice
2 dill pickles, diced into small pieces

Mix all ingredient together, chill until ready to serve.
We use this on almost ALL of the fish dishes that I make, my family loves it. I hope yours does too.

Happy Cooking~
