A nice change from canned tuna, canned salmon is great in a variety of patties, chowder and pasta dishes.

Indian-Style Salmon Fry

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
My mother used to make a simplified version of this that got me through my broke years in college. I've become a big fan of Indian food, so I 'Indianed' up this old favorite. You can tone down the heat by removing the seeds from the chili pepper. Serve it with rice.

I'm using canned salmon for this delicious salmon cakes recipe. Every grocery store carries it, and canned salmon is almost always wild salmon. I'm not going to go into the wild-versus-farmed salmon debate here, but wild is not only more eco-friendly, it tastes better, and is more nutritious. You could use fresh cooked salmon for this recipe if you have leftovers, but since we are mixing this up with eggs and cracker crumbs, fresh salmon just isn't necessary, so why spend the extra cash?
