Pour 1/2 inch oil in a large cast iron skillet and place over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix the salmon, eggs, onion, bread crumbs, cornmeal, salt, and pepper

Form mixture into four to six patties.

Place the patties in the hot oil; brown on both sides until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and serve at once.

Tip: serve with tartar or cocktail sauce; use to top a crispy green salad; make a sandwich.
