Mr. Crabs

I bet that title caught your attention!  No one in the house has crabs, just calm it on down.  Simmer.  Okay, so I wanted to share with y'all our dinner entree for tonight.  This is my moms famous dish that I have always enjoyed.  We typically eat it with Maw Maw's mushed up stuff but went a different route tonight.  These salmon patties are gold.  Serious biznas.  Gold.

My kids aren't about to eat SALMON patties, are you serious???  Dead.  Does your child watch Spongebob?  Well, Mr. Crabs presents to you: CRABBY PATTIES!  Oh yeah, its a total lie but hey, they eat it and they LOVE it!

Crabby Patties
(No crab needed)

2-14 Ounce Cans of Salmon (We like Double Q)
2 Eggs, Gently Beaten
1 Small Onion, Diced
3/4 Cup Yellow Cornmeal
1/2 Cup Evaporated Milk or Half and Half
Salt & Pepper To Taste
Oil for frying

Before Frying
Golden Brown
Drain the salmon really well but do not rinse it.  In a large bowl mix together the remaining ingredients.  Fold in the drained salmon. You may need to add more cornmeal or more milk depending on the texture of the cakes.  You want them to be moist but held together.  Heat your oil on medium heat, only use enough oil to lightly cover the bottom of the skillet.  We use veggie oil.  Patty out 2 ounce patties, about the size of your palm (small palms).  Then place the patty into the heated oil.  Fry for several minutes on each side until golden brown and thoroughly cooked.  Drain on paper towels or of course a paper bag works just as well.  Serve hot.  My kids eat them with                                                                                 ketchup.

Break a piece off, put it in your mouth, chew and say                 'mmmmmmm......soooooo......goooooood'.                                  
                             Your welcome.

                                                                       Gitcha Crab On,
                                                                                     Mrs. Crabs
