One of the most famous, most recreated menus on the planet has to be the Last Supper aboard the Titanic. I haven’t a clue as to why the sinking of this grand ocean liner holds such a romantically tragic place in the social physic, but it does. The Titanic has been the subject of many books, films and television programs. Immediately following the loss at sea, the public seemed unable to get enough and that appetite carried forward throughout the years. In all there were a total of 19 films and 27 Television productions, including a 1971 episode of Night Gallery entitled Lone Survivor.
As a kid, I remember my Tita (that’s Aunt) often made Salmon Patties on Fridays. Unlike mine, hers were served like a burger and were very delicious. One of my favorite things about visiting my Tita (besides hanging out with all my cousins) was having Salmon Patties for lunch. Let me tell you, her Salmon Patties beat the heck out of Mom’s Friday Fish Sticks!
First off, this recipe came to me about four years ago from That Skinny Chick Can Bake; who adapted it from her friend over at Manu’s Menu. So I wanted to give credit where credit is due and thank you both for the superb inspiration. As always, I did a little tweaking of my own, and I hope you do the same. The original recipe was part of Manu’s Italian Christmas Menu. I mention this with good reason . . .
