Grandma's Salmon Patties

Dana Guest


I have always loved salmon patties, and this is what I use now because they are close to what my grandma always made when we visited her in the summer. Salmon patties, garlic dill pickles and deviled eggs were some of my favorite things she made.

How to Make Grandma's Salmon Patties


  • 1Drain but reserve the liquid from 1 can (14.75 ounce) of salmon and can of tuna
  • 2Mix egg, salt & pepper, lemon juice, and cracker crumbs together with the fish. I like them without any salt and pepper but you may like to add a dash or to according to your preference.
  • 3Make into 12 small thin patties (or 6 larger ones if you prefer). If mixture is too dry to form into patties, just add the reserved liquid left over from the can.
  • 4Heat olive oil in a frying pan and place patties inside once the oil is heated. Brown each side, flipping gently. Drain on paper towels and serve.
