1 can (14 3/4 ounces) salmon

1/4 cup onion, finely chopped

1/4 cup cornmeal

1/4 cup flour

1 egg

3 tablespoons mayonnaise


Prepare Salmon:

Open the can of salmon and drain it thoroughly.

Place the drained salmon in a mixing bowl and flake it evenly with a fork.

Mix Ingredients:

Add the chopped onion, cornmeal, flour, mayonnaise, and egg to the salmon.

Stir the mixture until it is well blended.

Form Patties:

Shape the mixture into patties, about the size of an average burger or smaller.

Cook Patties:

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Cook the patties until they are browned on each side, turning once during frying.

Note: The addition of mayonnaise not only helps the patties hold their shape but also keeps them from being too dry.

These Southern Fried Salmon Patties are a testament to the comforting and wholesome flavors of Southern cooking. Serve them hot for a satisfying meal that's sure to please.
