This recipe has been in my family for many years. I changed the bland original and tweaked it a bit. Added the grated onion, lemon juice, and dill seed. Then fry in butter. My friends say it is a "Recipe to Die For!" in a manor of speaking only. The picture of my mom (June E.) and dad (Andy E.) in Chicago 1944 is because he loved salmon, as I do. We could and would eat it cold right from the can! Must be our Finnish heritage.

We really liked this salmon patty recipe. It's super easy to make which is always a bonus. Fresh veggies add flavor add a bit of texture to the patties. The flavor of salmon is really the star so if you love salmon this recipe is for you. No one will ever guess it was canned. We loved the crust and flavor frying in butter creates. Nancy gave several serving options. We opted for fresh lemon and a little bit of dill. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Canned Salmon Patties (Best Ever)

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain salmon. Remove bones and skin.
  2. In a large bowl combine salmon, bread crumbs, onion, celery, mayonnaise, and beaten egg.
  3. Mix.
  4. Shape into 4 even-sized patties. Two for dinner. And two the next day for a salmon burger. Condiments of your choice.
  5. In a large saute pan, melt butter on low.
  6. Add salmon patties.
  7. Cook on medium until golden brown on each side and cooked through.
  8. I like to serve a patty with boiled, and cut up cooked potatoes, a hard-boiled egg, cream gravy, and my Candied Crunchy Dill Pickles on the side. Sprinkle a little dill seed and a splash of lemon juice on the patties.
  9. My mom and dad.
