Salmon Patties, Easy? Oh Yes!

 We always get a large enough fillet to have seared salmon for dinner; salmon patties make a great brunch the next day.  Start with some chopped onion, celery, shredded cooked salmon, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
To this, add a large egg.

I like to add tarragon and a healthy measure of paprika.  Mix  this, squeeze in some lemon and about a cup of bread crumbs.  I prefer to run stick pretzels through the blender.  Work the pretzel or bread crumbs into the mix.  Have some pretzel crumbs for coating, too.  I place patties in a hot skillet with s smidge of oil just to keep them from sticking.  Brown on both sides and remove.  Another option is to pop them onto a baking sheet and into a 400 degree F oven for 12 min., turn and continue baking for another 6 minutes.

You get these lightly crisped, moist wonderful salmon patties that go with any favorite side:
coleslaw, tomato, basil, mozzarella,caprese, mac'n'cheese, potato salad, baked beans, tossed salad, whatever your taste buds demand.
