I used to love when my mom made salmon patties as a kid. It was a recipe I couldn’t wait to learn how to make and serve my own family. I have been craving these lately, so I thought I would try to give them a whirl…low carb style.
Just like all my recipes, I tried to keep the ingredients to a minimum. Here’s what you need:
1 ounce pork rinds (these are taking the place of bread crumbs/mashed crackers)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of Dijonnaise
2 5-ounce pouches of Pink Salmon.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Dump everything else in a bowl.
Mix together well, and form into 4 patties. Place the patties in the oil and let cook 2-3 minutes on each side.
Unfortunately, this is what mine turned out like. I was in a really big hurry cooking this last night. I was leaving this meal for my husband, and I was going to eat later.
I should have put the patties in the fridge for a few minutes, and used a spatula to flip them. Instead I used a baby spoon because that wall all that was clean and then I cried when this happened.
Who likes admitting when they fail? Not me. But, remember this month I am stepping out of what is comfortable. I wasn’t going to post this. Because it looks like crap, and who post the recipes when they are a disaster?
I do. Me. I am human. I rush around and do rambunctious things. I make mistakes, and learn to laugh at them.
Lucky for me, I made a mini Squash Casserole earlier in the day. (the saving grace of dinner.)
Lucky for me my husband is a good sport and ate the salmon crumbles. I ate them when I got home too. (I was out gallivanting around Charlotte getting even more out of my comfort zone.) These crumbles were awesome!
I just gotta slow down.
I would love to hear about your cooking fails! What is the biggest kitchen blunder you’ve ever made? Fess up!
2 patties…or half of the crumbled mess
