Fried seasoned salmon balls make a great easy entree, or serve them as an appetizer.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 (14.75 ounce) cans salmon, drained and flaked
- 2 cups crushed cornflakes cereal
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 quart oil for frying
In a medium bowl, mix salmon, crushed cornflakes, and onion. Blend in the eggs. Season with basil, oregano, and thyme. Form the mixture into 1 inch balls. Roll in flour to lightly coat.
Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet or deep fryer to approximately 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In batches, fry the salmon balls for about 15 minutes, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
