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.
