How to Make Salmon Patties a La Jane


  1. Drain salmon and pick off the skin and the round crunchy bones. Crumble with your hands.
  2. Put salmon, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, egg, onion, mayo, lemon juice, horseradish, and seasonings in a large bowl and mix well. The hot sauce is optional, but we like it.
  3. Form 4 patties with your hands.
  4. Put the 2/3 cup breadcrumbs on a shallow dish and roll patties in them. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
  5. Heat oil in a heavy skillet, and fry salmon patties until browned, turn and brown on the other side.
  6. Make tartar sauce by mixing up all sauce ingredients, cover and chill until serving time.
