TO PREPARE FOR FREEZING:

In a small freezer bag combine red pepper, chives, dill, lemons juice and Tabasco. Label a sleeve of Ritz crackers and 3 cans of salmon for the pantry.  Be sure to have two eggs and oil on hand.

TO PREPARE: In a medium bowl break up the canned salmon with a fork. Add about 1 cup cracker meal and work through the fish. Add the eggs, pepper, chives, dill, Tabasco, and lemon juice. If the mixture is too wet add more cracker meal.

Form 3-inch patties about 1 inch thick.  You should have 8-10 cakes. Fry in hot oil in a single layer until golden, 3-4 minutes on each side.

Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. These are delicious with salad greens with a lemon flavored dressing.

    I have used this method for over 10 years. You can find more recipes and more information on http://www.organizedhome.com I love it. I have fibromyalgia and arthritis, and chronic fatigue, so when and if I ever have a fibro or arthritis flare or I’m too exhausted to cook, I will go to the freezer first thing in the morning and take a meal out and by the time supper prep comes, all I have to do is pop it into the oven.
