Salmon Patties

This recipe doesn't have to be followed precisely- mix canned salmon with eggs in any amount and you'll end up with a patty. The eggs are simply there to bind the salmon together.

This is great served with rice and steamed veggies. We enjoy it with tartar sauce, but ketchup is also good.
