Now my mother grew up poor, a child of cane field labourers in Hawai’i. It’s not a bad life but it is one of sacrifices made by families and stretching of food to feed a huge family. It also means growing up around a diverse cultural mix, which then of course means different types of foods. I’m not sure where this one came from but it was a standard in my mom’s kitchen. We all make a version of this. Usually it has more egg but can have bread crumbs. It tastes bests with green onions and well, ketchup.
Do NOT JUDGE THE KETCHUP. It’s one of the few things I eat with ketchup. *grins* And of course, rice. *grins*
Canned salmon, green onions, garlic, salt and pepper, beaten eggs and bread crumbs to firm up the patties if you want them to be more patties than omelettes.
