Running short of money a couple of days before payday or trying to stick to a budget? Don't have time (or the energy) to run out to the store? If you've got a can of salmon or tuna, and a healthy spice cupboard, you might just have dinner.
This recipe is inspired by "Salmon Chops" from Patricia R. Wagner's "Depression Era Recipes" and I altered it a little bit to suit my taste ... and with what was available in my cupboard! I often turn to her recipes as they are easy, use few or low cost ingredients, and make a good meal in a pinch.
The beauty of this recipe is that you likely have most of these items already ... and the ones you don't have are easy to stock up on, and don't spoil by storing. It pays to keep your pantry stocked up on basic items such as the ones used in this "Salmon Cakes" recipe. The Depression was a time when people had to make do with what they had, and also what was available. I like to apply that to today by just living simply ... which usually saves money to boot!
