My family has always loved these salmon patties. They come out very crisp and have a wonderful flavor and they're easy to make. I serve them with potatoes or mac & cheese and a vegetable for a great meal. Hope y'all enjoy!

    HELPFUL TIPS: When forming patties, try not to make them too thin or they may break apart when turning. Be sure to remove all of the skin and bones from the salmon before mixing and forming into patties. When browned well in hot oil, these patties are very crispy and delicious.
