Simple 4 Ingredients Pink Salmon Patty

Last week I bough some cans of pink salmon at the grocery store. Some people do not like can salmon, but they are great if you are in a diet.
I eat can of tuna a lot while in a diet. It is an easy, quick, and cheap source of protein. However, after awhile I get really tired of it. That is when can of salmon enter the picture.
Can of Salmon was on sale last week, so I both couple of them so I could switch to it instead of tuna.

Yesterday I made Salmon Patty for lunch using only 4 ingredients, here is the recipe:



- 1 can of drained pink salmon
- 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions of chives
- 2 tablespoons of Mayo (I used Kraft Reduce Fat Olive Oil Mayo - My favorite by the way)
- 1/2 cup of stuffing

Directions: (It could not be easier)
- Mix all the ingredients together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add a little bit of water if needed (depending how well you drain your salmon you might need a little bit of water to get a better consistency - But please add very little water at time so you do not add to much). The consistency you want is simple - You want the mixture to stick together, be a little wet but not to much.
- Refrigerate the mixture for at least 20 minutes, so the stuffing absorb the moist.
- Mold your patty. For that I pack a  1/2 of cup measuring cup, and just drop it in the HOT pan.
- Spray a non-stick pan and brown your patty on both sides.

Off course everything is already cooked so you just need to get a little brown on both sizes.

You can also use tuna, if you prefer.  : ) 

And VoilĂ ....


I ate with a little salad and sliced tomatoes for a complete lunch.

This recipe yields 2 servings, and each searching is about 215 calories, and 12 gr of protein.
My whole lunch was less than 300 calories, which gives me a lot of run for snacks throughout the day.

Today I had the other patty in an English Muffin open sandwich. I topped the salmon patty with ground stone mustard (my favorite), and roasted peppers. I also had some tomato on the side. Delicious and about 350 calories.
It might not look very appealing but it was delicious!!!!
