Sweet Potato Salmon Patties

Alice Bowers


This recipe originally came from the internet. I have improvised and made it my own by omitting and adding ingredients.

pinch tips: How to Perfectly Cook Fish in a Pan



10 patties


large sweet potato or 2 small
salt and pepper
3 6oz. can(s)
1 Tbsp
seafood seasoning/old bay
1 1/2 c
saltine cracker crumbs (or combination of cracker and bread crumbs is ok)
egg, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp
finely chopped thyme leaves/dried is also ok
1 Tbsp
hot sauce
scallions, finely chopped/or 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
3 -4 Tbsp
finely chopped fresh dill/dried dill also works (use less)
2 Tbsp
olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

Put the potatoes in a small pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Salt the water and cook until tender (10 to 12 minutes) Drain, then return the potatoes to the pot and mash.
Put the canned salmon in a bowl(I drain/rinse the salmon) and flake with a fork, add salt and pepper to taste. Add the mashed sweet potatoes to the bowl along with the seafood seasoning, half of the cracker crumbs, the egg, thyme, hot sauce, scallions and dill. Mix to combine. The mixture needs to be just firm enough to mold into cakes. If it's to wet, add a few more crumbs.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Form patties and coat in the remaining crumbs and then add them to the skillet. Cook till a golden brown. We like a crunchy crust, so I cook for about 4-5 minutes per side.
