12 ounces skinless boneless salmon (sold in 6 oz cans or packets)
1⁄2 medium onion, chopped
1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs, seasoned or 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, plain
1⁄4 cup chopped parsley (optional)
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
Saute onions in 1 TBS olive oil until cooked through but not brown.
Drain liquid from the salmon.
Combine salmon, sauteed onion, breadcrumbs (parsley if you use plain breadcrumbs), eggs, salt, and pepper. Form mixture into patties.
Melt butter and oil in a pan.
Brown salmon patties on both sides (about 4-5 minutes per side). Place cooked patties on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
