CANNED SALMON BURGERS

1 can (14.75 oz.) canned pink salmon
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 c. finely chopped onion
2 T. chopped parsley
1/2 c. fine, dry bread crumbs
1 T. lemon juice
1 T. grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp. Rosemary, crushed
salt and pepper to taste
Optional addition: 1/3 cup Swiss cheese, finely diced

Drain salmon and flake with a fork. Bones and skin are completely edible, but you may choose to pick out the large pieces. Mix together all ingredients, shape into 5 patties, and pan fry in olive oil until lightly browned on both sides. Serve on toasted hamburger buns or simply as patties with a vegetable side. I wish I could remember for certain, but I believe I first saw a recipe like this on the back of a can of salmon, or even tuna? I wish I could be sure.
