Canned salmon is such a good thing to keep in your pantry. It is always nice to know that I can have salmon cakes just by opening a can and adding a few ingredients that I usually have on hand.
1 small can of salmon makes 4 cakes
1 egg yolk
1 Tablespoon scallions
1/8 cup bread crumbs
wheat germ for breading or use extra bread crumbs
vegetable oil for frying
Drain and pick shells out off salmon. Combine 1st 3 ingredients. Add 1/8 cup bread crumbs. Form into patties and dust with additional bread crumbs or wheat germ. Fry 2 minutes on each side.I keep a jar of wheat germ in the freezer. This is about the only thing that I use it for so it lasts me forever.
