Salmon Patties

This is something we have in the house once or twice a month. It is a good way to get some fish, as well as those omega fatty acids that are good for you. I use canned boneless skinless salmon. I used to use just regular canned salmon, but I found that I was throwing away more and more of it picking out the bones and skin (my dad's preference, otherwise I would leave the skin). This is a very simple recipe. I use three cans of boneless skinless salmon for 5 people.

3 cans boneless skinless salmon (drained)
2 eggs
1/3 cup of breadcrumbs
1 small onion chopped
1 tsp - 1 tbls of dillweed (to taste)
salt and pepper (to taste)

Mix everything together in a large bowl until well incorporated. Heat just enough oil to coat a large frying pan. I use a 1/3 cup measure to make patties. Then place them in the hot oil and fry until golden brown on the outside. Usually takes about 5 minutes a side depending on the heat setting.
