2 cans (7 1/2 oz. each) salmon, drained and flaked
1 cup crushed saltine crackers
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 to 1/2 cup vegetable oil
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the salmon, cracker crumbs, egg, salt and pepper, breaking up the salmon well. Shape the salmon mixture into five 3-inch patties...make sure they are firm.
2. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Place the patties in the skillet. Cook until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Drain on paper towels.
