This is a recipe my mother-in-law, a GRITS (Girls Raised in The South) gave me when my husband asked if I knew how to make Salmon Patties. I had to get it from her twice, because I lost the first recipe. And of course, as a true GRITS, this recipe is different from the first …. I know this because I did remember the first a little bit and this one had more flour and corn meal. Which means she just makes it off the top of her head. At least she didn’t tell me “a handful of flour and dash of salt.”
Large can of salmon
½ cup flour
½ cup corn meal
Salt to taste
Put enough oil in a skillet to make ¼ inch. Heat on medium. Mix all ingredients together in bowl and shape into patties. Fry until brown , 3-5 minutes each side.
