Mum seems to have collected a lot of booklets from Sun Rice Australia I suspect she went to one of their cooking demonstrations. This recipe has a great combination of rice, spices and seafood all in a coconut sauce. It’s a meal in itself.
As a child I loved going to stay at my Auntie Elsie’s as she would always make salmon patties for me, I loved them. I’ve never managed to make any as good as hers and they certainly weren’t as fancy as these ones that John West published years later. The closest here is the Australian version minus the corn or lemon.
I confess to liking salmon, whether it’s smoked, baked, grill or even tinned, so that’s probably why I really like this salmon pate. You need to use red salmon to get a good flavour, that makes it a little more expensive, but it does make a good amount. As it says it’s quick, easy to make and everyone seems to like it. Also, leftovers are great on toast this next morning!!!
It’s a bit strange to see this 70s recipe using tinned carrots and tinned stir fry vegetables. The article says ‘hearty meals – don’t have to mean hours of work”, but I think using apacket of prepared fresh vegetables, that are available now in the supermarket, would be a lot tastier and just as easy.
