These salmon patties require a few simple steps for preparation, but the combination of shallots, mashed potato, and a crunchy coating is really delicious.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1/2 pound salmon
- 1 red potato, peeled and chopped
- 1 shallot, minced
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup cornflake crumbs
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and lightly grease a small baking dish.
Place salmon in the prepared baking dish, cover, and bake 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork.
Place potato in a small saucepan with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and mash.
In a medium bowl, mix salmon, potato, shallot, egg, and bread crumbs. Season with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Place the cornflake crumbs in a small bowl. Form the salmon mixture into 1 inch balls, and roll in the cornflakes to coat.
Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Press the balls into patties, and fry 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
