Spicy Salmon Patties (Recipe)
Permitted use provided by: MissHomemade.com
If you have some cooked salmon and a few minutes to spare, you must make my delicious spicy salmon patties.
Of course, you make them as hot as you want. These are really moist and a wonderful treat for everyone.
You may add a little "healthy" to these and the kids won't know (you may want to leave out the jalapenos). Meal suggestions are at the bottom of the page. Enjoy.
Spicy Salmon Patties
- 1-1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and diced
- 5 ounces baby spinach (secret ingredient)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
- 3 TBS chopped dill (and more for garnish, optional)
- 1-1/2 lbs skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1/4 cup heavy cream, plus 2 tablespoons
- 1/4 cup chopped green onion
- vegetable oil for frying
In a sauce pan, cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until tender. Drain and let cool. Transfer to a large bowl.
Heat 2 tablespoons of water in a large skillet. Add the spinach in batches and cook until wilted. Drain, squeeze dry and coarsely chop.
In a small bowl, mix the mayo, jalapeno and chopped dill together. Taste and season with salt, chill until ready to use.
Put the salmon in a food processor and pulse a few times until chopped. Pulse in the heavy cream until incorporated. Add the chopped salmon to the potatoes. Stir in the spinach and minced onion and season with salt. Form into patties.
In a large skillet, heat 1/8 inch of oil. Add half of the patties and fry over high heat until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Reduce the heat and cook until well browned; approximately 2 minutes. Turn and cook for 3 minutes, until browned.
Repeat with the remaining patties; add more oil to the skillet if needed. Garnish the patties with dill sprigs and serve with the sauce.
