My Version Of Salmon Patties

Salmon is not too expensive when purchased in a can. It can make a nice addition to a simple meal. I usually prepare brown beans, fried potatoes, corn bread and salmon patties with white sauce on it. I posted the recipe for basic white sauce about a month ago. This is my recipe To make salmon patties. Salmon Patties This recipe makes about 4 good sized salmon patties. Ingredients: 1 can Salmon (Drain & take the skin off any pices that have it on it and crush bones well) 1/2 medium onion 1 large egg mixed well with 2 Tablespoon milk about 1/4 cup oats 2 saltine crackers salt and pepper Olive Oil Directions: Put your salmon in a large bowl and crush it well so the bones are all blended. Add all the rest of the ingredients except the olive oil. Mix it up well. Shape into patties. Fry in a skillet until lightly browned on both sides. You can finish them in the skillet or you can bake them in the oven on a cookie sheet for about 30 minutes until they're nice and brown. O do mine in the oven so I don't have to stand over them until they're cooked. I can pop them in the oven and make whatever else we're having for supper that night. When they are done, I put a spoon full of basic white sauce on each patty and it is ready to serve. A lot of people remove the bones but there is alot of calicum in the bones and they crush so well that you can not even tell they are in the salmon. Some people leave in the juice but I think it makes them too strong. So I drain mine and use the egg and milk to make them moist instead of dry. How do you make Salmon Patties?

That is EXACTLY (minus the oats) how I make mine! I watched my grandmother make them for years! I too, crush the bones and leave them in due to the large amount of calcium that they provide. My family and I love salmon patties. I don't use the oats and I use a few more saltines. I may try the oats next time, as that is yet another way to increase the oats in our diet! I may try all oats and no saltines!

I have never tasted salmon patties but how you prepared it here seems actually good. I guess I'll try to see if I can cook this for my family. Thanks!:)

You are number one on my list today. My son was just asking about tuna patties, I had made them a while back. I told I would have to look for the recipe when I got a chance. Lo and Behold here you come with the answer. I can substitue the tuna for the salmon . I like your whole meal idea. Thanks once again for saving me some time.

I love salmon patties but I haven't make them in over a year! Now that you've got me thinking about them, I'll have to whip some up! I leave the bones in as well. Also I always bake, instead of fry when I make them. Your recipe sounds almost exactly the same as what I used. I'm on a computer at school right now, so I can't actually look at mine!

This sounds great! But, I remove the bones and eat them! That is one of my favorite parts of canned salmon. We do enjoy salmon patties. I haven't tried them using oats. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Good idea but be careful. Do you know that salmon is the most unhealthy fish to eat if it is farm-raised. Only the wild, free-range salmon are healthy, just like all foods should be eaten only organic. Don't worry about price when it comes to food. Its your health and your body. Is it worth it being cheap, and putting contaminants, and carcinogens into your body? I'm cheap with everything else, but never food

thanks for the recipe, it is different in not having much in the way of breading - so sounds much better in way of lending itself to a low carbohydrate diet. I will make this tomorrow! I will have to use Mackeral in place of the salmon I think as that is what I bought at the shop last week. Unless I find a can of salmon in the pantry, hiding. Was it you that posted the recipe for croquets? If it was I want to applaud you! it was so good. I put a can of mackeral in the batter and some garlic and cheese...I did need to use a bit more milk than suggested, but it was not a problem to add a little more at a time till right consistency. I doubled the recipe and df fried up about half of it everyone loved them...then I got lazy and put the rest in a casserole dish and baked it as a bread. WOW! that was really good. we had it the next day toasted with cheese - and some with seafood salad on it. It was even good just toasted with no additions.
