Small patties would make an excellent appetizer. From the Southwest chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 cup water, boiling
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, well beaten
- 8 ounces salmon, drained
- 1⁄2 cup grated cheese (American, Cheddar or Monterrey Jack)
- 15 ounces enchilada sauce (or Gebhardt's Chili Gravy)
- 1 onion, peeled and sliced into rings
- lard or other fat, for frying
- Mix corn meal, water and salt together.
- Cook until slightly thickened.
- Cool and add the egg and salmon; form into patties for frying.
- Fry in hot fat.
- When brown on both sides, sprinkle a tablespoon of grated cheese on each patty and serve with sauce and onion slices.
These are really good. I had my doubts about the enchilada sauce on the salmon, but it was FANTASTIC! They don't reheat well, but are really good the first time around!
