1 (14 3/4 ounce) canned salmon
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup flour
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
Open salmon and drain thoroughly. Place drained salmon in a mixing bowl and flake evenly with a fork. Add onion, cornmeal, flour, mayonnaise, and egg. Stir until well blended.
Shape the mixture into patties about the size of an average burger or less. Cook in oil in a skillet over medium heat until browned on each side. Turn once while frying.
Note: The mayonnaise helps the patties hold their shape and keeps them from being too dry.
