Salmon Patty Tutorial

Today I took another step in “eating myself out of house and home” 

I’m making a Salmon Burger for lunch. It will use up canned salmon from my pantry and burger bun from the freezer.

Doing a tutorial will give me the opportunity to showcase some of the kitchen tools I have acquired while thrifting. Everything in this photo is pre-owned except the knife and glass bowl. (I have lots of thrifted bowls but I wanted one you could see through for this tutorial)

burger press,  portion scoop, cheese slicer, pancake turner, cutting board, cast iron skillet

I use a non-recipe when I make these patties. Just drain a can of salmon. Put it in a bowl with an egg, chopped onion and some breadcrumbs, add seasonings of your choice. I use dill, garlic powder, and a smidge of seasoning salt.

Image

Get in there with your fingers and smush it all together.

I read on Frugal Girls blog that the liners from cereal boxes can be repurposed, so I cut circles to keep the individual patties from sticking together.

Using a burger press makes nice uniform patties but you can mold your patties by hand if you don’t have one. Eat now or store in the freezer for future use.

Put a little fat of your choice (oil, butter or my favorite bacon fat) in a skillet and fry the patty until golden brown on both sides

Toast a bun, add tartar sauce and lettuce and enjoy.
