Salmon Patties in Creamed Peas

Patty Ward


This is our go to recipe for quick, easy salmon patties. Hubby loves the cream peas also. Sometimes I will put a can of whole potatoes in there as well and just eat them on the side.
If you think you don't like salmon, this is a good starting place for you using canned red salmon. I hope you like this as much as we do! Enjoy!

How to Make Salmon Patties in Creamed Peas


  • 1It is best to make the creamed peas first; so that it's ready to pour over the salmon patties when done-the patties take very little time to fry.
  • 2For creamed peas: Melt the butter in a small pan and stir in the flour and seasonings. Gradually stir in the half and half, using a whisk to prevent lumps. Heat, whisking until sauce begins to thicken. Add drained baby peas and gently stir with a spoon. Stir often as it continues to heat and thicken. Remove from heat when it is finished.
  • 3To Prepare Salmon Patties: Break up the salmon in a shallow bowl and mix with remaining salmon ingredients. Sprinkle a piece of waxed paper generously with flour/panko mixture. Shape salmon into 4-6 patties and carefully dredge both sides with flour/panko.
  • 4Preheat skillet until hot-but not hot enough to burn the butter when added-and add butter to pan. As soon as it is melted place salmon patties into the hot,melted butter. Fry until golden on bottom then carefully flip and continue to fry until brown on bottom.
  • 5Remove from pan and plate; pour creamed pea sauce over patties. Enjoy your dinner! I usually start with a mixed green salad and fresh fruit for dessert.
