My Grandmas always made simple nutritious meals that stuck with you that you still crave to this day. I loved salmon patties, and still eat them the same way as I did when I was a kid, simply dipped in ketchup! These I'm sure would also be good dipped in my homemade tartar sauce, a honey mustard sauce or a dilled sour cream and cucumber sauce, too. Just enjoy them the same way you did when you were a kid! ;) *When I have these as a sandwich on a toasted bun, I do prefer tartar sauce, though. (photo from bing images)

How to Make Grandma's Salmon Patties


  • 1Drain salmon well, and remove skin and bones if not using boneless skinless. Place into medium mixing bowl and mash up with fork. Add all other ingredients except oil and butter and mix together (mixture should be stiff enough to form patties, but not too dry).
    Form into patties and place in a pre-heated skillet over medium heat with the vegetable oil and melted butter mixed together. Cook until deep golden brown on both sides. About 4 minutes per side, but watch so they don't burn and that they are nicely browned. Can sub 1/2 cup flour if preferred over crushed crackers. And if you prefer them "poofed" a little, add 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder.
    Serve with sauce of choice!
