Salmon Patties with Lemon Sauce


20150429-150303-54183452.jpgI started making this recipe over fifteen years ago, and it is a wonderful way to serve salmon! If you have leftover salmon from cooking a fresh/frozen salmon, that can be used instead of the canned salmon.

The Recipe:

1 can (14 ¾ oz.) pink salmon, bones and skin removed

¾ cup milk

1 cup soft bread crumbs

1 egg, beaten

1 Tblsp. dried parsley or 2 Tblsp. fresh parsley, chopped

1 tsp. minced onion

½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce

¼ tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. ground pepper

Lemon Sauce:

2 Tblsp. oil

4 tsp. flour

¾ cup milk

2 Tblsp. lemon juice

¼ tsp. salt

Dash of pepper

Optional, but a nice touch: 2 Tblsp. grated lemon rind

Combine the first nine ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, and then pour into a greased 9”x9” square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

To make the lemon sauce:

Heat the oil over a medium heat, and add the flour; stir to make a smooth paste. Stir in the milk, and stir constantly until it starts to thicken. Once it is a sauce-like consistency, add the lemon juice, rind, salt, and pepper and talk off the heat. Makes about 1 cup, and let people spoon it over their salmon patties.

Enjoy! Makes 4 servings.

The original recipe for this dish came from Taste of Home magazine. I modified and added to it.
