I am often asked for an easy, tasty salmon recipe that kids will enjoy. This recipe, which has been passed down for over 60 years, fits the bill. Choose wild Alaskan salmon, along with it being high in healthy omega-3 fatty oils, it is sustainably harvested and has low levels of mercury and other toxins. Canned wild Alaskan salmon is a less expensive alternative and works well for this recipe.
These quick and delicious patties of healthy salmon are a favorite of all ages. Serve with a fresh salad or seasonal vegetables.
