Salmon Patties

Other options Great “go to” dinner when you forgot to take something out of the freezer, (like I did today!) These can also be made ahead and frozen. Also great served as an appetizer. Form into “mini” salmon patties and watch your guests make these disappear! Have a salmon “burger night”. Place salmon pattie on bun of your choice, top with cheese, lettuce, tomato and tartar sauce.
