I grew up eating salmon patties made with canned salmon. We always had them with peas and mashed potatoes. Since moving my diet to the Med Way, I decided to resurrect a childhood favorite and give it a modern twist. Using canned salmon makes this dish an easy go to even with salmon is not on sale. I choose to remove the skin and bones which takes a minute but gives the final product a better look and taste, in my opinion. This step is optional as are some of the modern twists I suggest. The recipe is a good basic one that you can add to as you like with different vegetables (such as green pepper) or spices. The canned salmon has a bit of salt already so I don’t add any more.
Serving Size: 1 Pattie
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 1 can salmon, skin and bones removed

Love salmon patties! Try with minced vidalia onions, orange, red, yellow peppers, 2 eggs, 3 cans wild Alaska salmon. I add swish of sea salt, black pepper, whole sleeve of saltines, I use a look large fork to combine. Put on those gloves & squish until you’re able make smooth patties. I prefer fried in grapeseed oil . 5 min. On each side, you must put enough oil to come up the side to the middle of the patty. 3 cans make 10 burgers.
My husband suffered a stroke and I made these for him as a healthy alternative to our traditional ones and he loved it. Said they were better than our traditional ones.
Awesome! We are glad to hear that you both enjoyed them.
No doubt I made this a little less healthy, but it sure was good! I used two eggs instead of one and put in a wee bit more bread crumbs. I also added about a 1/2 tsp of Crazy Mixed Up Salt. My husband loved them. I’ll be doing these again.
We are so glad you enjoyed them! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
