My Ma used to make “salmon patties” when I was a kid, and the whole family loved them. You couldn’t help it… they were crunchy, mild in flavour, and Ma always served ketchup alongside in the cutest little pewter pitcher with a lid you could flip up and down with your thumb. I ate more just so I could use the ketchup pitcher. I know why she loved them- there were only 3 ingredients (canned salmon, saltine crackers, and egg) that she had on hand all the time. Plus, they could be whipped up in less time than it took for me and my brother to watch a Star Trek rerun on TV….
