Camping recipes – Salmon Patties

Last night’s dinner

Ok.  So you’ve had a big day out exploring your new surrounds.   You don’t feel like finding somewhere to eat, let alone going back out again!   Keeping a tin of salmon in your camping pantry gives you a protein base for a variety of recipes.  These patties are tasty and easy to cook with minimal ingredients.  Kids will love them.

This is a John West recipe.   They’ve added a tin of corn kernals to the mix.    I’ve also added herbs or curry powder in the past.   If you don’t have spring onions, substitute some finely chopped red onion.  Tweak the recipe depending on what you have at hand.

I made a quick seafood sauce using  mayonnaise, tomato sauce, lemon juice, S&P to taste and some chilli flakes.
