I was happy to see asparagus when I went to the store and even happier that it was on sale! I cooked them in extra virgin olive oil with garlic and some salt. Just the basics to compliment the flavor. It has been quite a while since we have had salmon patties. There is onion, bread crumbs, egg and some seasonings that are mixed with the salmon. Then the patties were fried in butter for that nice flavorful outer crust.
