This is the way I've made salmon patties all my cooking life: it's quick, easy and tastes great! Similar to pan-fried croquettes, the cornmeal ensures a crispy crust while the inside stays soft and moist. Whenever I'm feeling low, I like to serve these with a quick-cooking leafy green like chard or spinach, and I feel better right away. Feel free to add some onion or other spices (Old Bay or cayenne, etc.) to suit your tastes.
