Southwest Salmon Patties

Southwest Salmon Croquettes have been a tradition in our family for Fridays during the Lenten season. Canned salmon, green chile and onion patties are perfect for a light meal. They are great on St. Patty's Day too if you prefer a lighter meal than traditional brisket or corned beef and cabbage.
