Ingredients

  • 1 14-ounce can Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon OR two cans of cleaned salmon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard or any mustard for that matter
  • 1/2 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning this is a must
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder or 3 tablespoons diced onion
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 sleeve of crumbled saltine or Ritz crackers if making gluten free or low carb substitute 1/4-1/3 cup good Parmesan cheese or gf bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley optional

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray or line with parchment.
  • If cleaning your salmon, open the can and empty contents into a medium bowl. Clean away any skin or bones and transfer the cleaned fillet into a separate medium bowl.
  • If using already cleaned salmon, just drain away any water and empty the contents into the bowl.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, leaving the crackers or Parmesan cheese until last.
  • Divide the mixture as evenly as you can, making five or six balls. Transfer the balls to the cookie sheet and press them down until they are about 1/2 inch thick. Drizzle with a little olive oil (optional) before baking.
  • Bake until evenly browned, about 20-25 minutes. Serve warm.
