Salmon Potato Patties
1 small onion
handful of baby carrots
2 cups prepared mashed potatoes (I used some ready-made, but leftovers would also work well)
2 - 6 oz. cans of pink salmon
2 tbs corn starch
Finely chop the onion and carrots. I used a food chopper to get the onions very small so that my kids couldn't see the onions; otherwise, they would protest and refuse to eat it.
Next saute the onions and carrots with a little bit of olive oil until the onions start to caramelize and the carrots soften.
Then drain the salmon and empty it into a medium sized bowl. Mix in the onion/carrots, mashed potatoes, egg and corn starch.
Form the mixture into 8 patties and cook in a skillet with some olive oil for approximately 5 minutes on each side. I just used the same skillet that I used to saute the onions and carrots.
I served the patties with some peas.
