Serves: 4

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 


1 (10-ounce) can pink salmon
1 small onion, diced
1 large egg
2 tablespoons white cornmeal
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
1 cup vegetable oil


Place salmon in a large bowl. Do not drain. Remove the bones and stir in the onion, egg, cornmeal, salt, pepper, garlic powder and hot sauce. If the mixture is too moist, add more cornmeal.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large cast iron skillet. Form small portions of the salmon mixture in a ball and flatten. Place in hot oil. Brown on both sides, remove, and drain on paper towel. Keep warm while cooking the remaining salmon mixture. Serve.
