Recipe: Salmon Patties and Cream Pea Sauce

What are your favorite meals that are healthy and if served, you know your family, including picky kids will go away from the table full? Well this is our family favorite, may sound strange, but even my pickiest eater gobbles these down. In an attempt to get more Omega fatty acids into their diets we have these once a week and they never seem to tire of them! Crazy! This recipe comes from my sweet Grandma who always fixed them for us and we loved them too! We call them Salmon Patties, they are made using canned red salmon you can find in the same section of the grocery store that you would find canned tuna fish. I would love shared comments on what your family's favorite healthy dinners are!
Salmon Patty Recipe:
2 cans red salmon, drained,bones/skin removed
2 eggs
5-7 soda crackers, smashed fine
1/2 stick butter
4 Tbls flour
1/2 Tsp salt
3 cups milk
1 1/2 cup frozen peas

Drain salmon, and remove all skin, bones and any other undesirable thingy's. Shred salmon apart with forks until not too chunky, set aside and start on cream sauce. Melt butter in a sauce pan, add flour and salt into a roux, slowly add milk and stir with wire whisk until thickened, about 10 min, then add frozen peas and cook until tender, about 5 more minutes. Add eggs and smashed soda crackers to salmon and mix until holds together in a patty. Spray a non-stick fry pan with Pam or a pat of butter melted,add patties to hot pan and cook for about 10 minutes, turning once during cooking. Serve with fresh lemon juice squeezed over patty and topped with cream pea sauce.
