Sammie Cakes

1 14.75 oz can Pink Salmon
1/2 c saltine or oyster cracker crumbs
1/2 c finely chopped onion
1/2 c finely chopped red bell pepper
2 TBSP light mayo or salad dressing
2 eggs, beaten + 1 separate egg beaten with 2 TBSP water
juice from 1 lemon
3 TBSP chopped parsley (fresh) or 1 TBSP dried
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2-1 c Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Drain and flake salmon in a medium bowl (it will have skin and small bones, which are edible, soft, and a great source of calcium and Omega 3's)

Combine cracker crumbs, onion, bell pepper, mayo, 2 eggs, lemon, parsley, garlic, black pepper and salmon.

Shape into 8 patties. Dip each patty in 1 egg/water wash, then the Italian breadcrumbs to coat.

Heat 1-2 TBSP oil in a large skillet. Cook patties over medium heat, turning only once, until both sides are golden brown and heated through.

Remove from skillet to platter lined with paper towels to remove excess grease.

*** These are very kid friendly and a great way to get kids to eat more healthy seafood! ***
