  • 1 Tsp. lemon juice

Mix together salmon, breadcrumbs, egg and mayonnaise. Add spices and lemon juice, mixing well. Put about 1/4 cup additional breadcrumbs into a shallow bowl. Make flat patties from salmon mixture, then set in breadcrumbs, coating on both sides. Spray star mold with non-stick baking spray and then press each patty, one at a time, into the mold. To release from mold, tap bottom lightly, setting each star into heated pan with the olive oil. Cook on medium heat for about 4-5 minutes per side. Stars should be lightly browned. Serve with a honey mustard dressing or sour cream.

You Need

  • 1/2 Cup sour cream
