How to Make Grandma's Salmon Patties
- Drain 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!
