“When I couldn't find a recipe that sounded like what I wanted, I set out to make the perfect salmon patty. This is it for me. After a few tries, I learned that when forming the mixture into patties, leaving it loose rather than packing tightly makes for a more tender finished product. Serve with your favorite sauce or eat them on buns with ketchup as my grandkids do.”
4 patties

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place salmon into a bowl. Gently flake, removing the bones & skin.
  2. Toss with eggs, potatoes, onion, crackers, baking powder, lemon pepper and Tabasco.
  3. Using your hands, form into 4 loosely packed patties & gently coat both sides & edges with cornmeal.
  4. Add oil to frying pan & heat to medium high.
  5. Brown patties 2-3 minutes on each side, trying to turn them only once.
  6. **Note 1: I use the frozen hash browns for convenience only. (1) small to medium potato, peeled and grated, could be substituted for them.
  7. *** Note 2: Sometimes I "raise the spice bar" & add chopped parsley or diced jalapenos or whatever else appeals to my palate at the moment of mixing.
