1 (7.5 oz) can of salmon or tuna
2 Tbsp finely diced shallots or onion ** I use dried, minced onion when I have no fresh
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp panko or regular breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp canola oil
I doubled the recipe and ended up using three (5 oz) cans of tuna. Drain and flake the tuna in a bowl, then add the onion, egg and 1/4 cup of panko crumbs.
Mix well. Then to make the patties, I score the bowl into eight sections. Can you see what I mean in the picture?
Then I take out one section at a time, form into a pattie and place into panko crumbs.
Make sure the crumbs are on all sides and place into a heated skillet with canola oil.
When they are nice and brown (about 2-3 minutes), flip them over to brown the other side.
These can be enjoyed with many different types of sauces, but for purists like us, ketchup was the first choice.
