simple salmon patties

I love a good pantry meal. One that you can whip up with items you just happen to have to hand. I always try to have a big tin of red salmon in the pantry, so I can make some salmon patties. Which I did tonight. Here's how:

One 445g tin of red salmon {I like the ones with the bones in for extra calcium - and you don't taste it!}
Two large potatoes for mashing {swap with orange sweet potato for a different taste}
1/2 red onion, finely diced
a good sprinkling of dried thyme
a good squirt of lime juice
1 egg {plus two more for coating}
flour {for dusting}
panko bread crumbs {for crumbing}

In a bowl combine salmon, cold mashed potatoes, onion, thyme, lime and one egg. Mix together really well. Now, normally I'd form these into patties and refrigerate for 30 mins, but tonight I got distracted and just left the mix sitting in the bowl - and they formed beautifully! Form palm sized balls, flatten out and dip in flour, then beaten egg, then panko.

Place on a greased oven tray and sprinkle with a little olive oil.

Pop into a hot oven {around 190 degrees fan-forced} for 20 minutes - turning patties halfway through. Serve with lime mayonaise or a dipping mix of 2/3 sweet chilli sauce to 1/3 lime juice.

My daughter just LOVES these, as do both hubby and I. If there happen to be any left over they're damned delicious in a crusty breadroll with cos lettuce and some lime mayo {cheat and mix lime juice into good quality bought mayo - I do!}
