A Salmon Recipe & A Memory

Camping meals are a rather planned event as it's a little hard to 'wing it' in the wilderness.  This past weekend, we took the kids camping and our dinner consisted of "Campers Bean Stew" (Read: Beans & Wieners).  Now, I am not complaining about the foods we chose to eat;  however, I recalled an article by my friend Merry about how there were more glamorous ways to do camping fare than the traditional burger or dog.  That sparked a memory of something my Grandmother used to make for us when I camped as a child, and I think it'll make our list of things to eat our next camping trip out.

Salmon Cakes.  Much less like cake than it sounds, but a great way to use canned salmon or even a salmon caught on the lake.  The ingredients are minimal (perfect for camping), yet tasty and a frying pan is all that is needed.

  • 1 Can Pink Salmon, de-boned
  • 1 Cup of Bread Crumbs or 2 slices of bread crumbled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp of grapeseed, canola oil or melted butter  
  • 1 chopped apple
  • 1 tsp dill

    Mix ingredients and form into patties. Place patties in the frying pan when oiled and hot. Flip the patty over after a few minutes and do so until both sides have been browned.  Sprinkle with salt if desired, or pair with tartar sauce or ketchup.

    This recipe will yield 6 good sized patties, but can easily be doubled or made into smaller patties.
