A quick and easy kid favorite, this recipe is a creative way to use canned salmon and saltines!

Ingredients

  • 1 can pink salmon (16 ounces, drained)
  • 16 saltine crackers (crushed, about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • non-stick cooking spray

Directions

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine salmon, cracker crumbs and egg.

2. Divide mixture into 8 balls and shaped into sticks about 4 inches long.

3. Lightly coat a skillet with cooking spray. Add oil and preheat the skillet on medium for 1 to 2 minutes. Add fish sticks and cook for 3 minutes.

4. Flip over and cook about 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

Canned pink salmon contains soft bones that are a great source of calcium. Take out any large, hard bones, and then mash the small bones with a fork. You can do this and you will never know the bones are there once the fish is cooked. Pink salmon is "swimming" with omega-3 fatty acids -- a "good" thing for your heart. So it's a good idea to get hooked on salmon.

Rinsing your hands in lemon juice and water will get rid of the fishy smell after preparing fish.
