This recipe comes from the back of the package of Chicken of the Sea Pink Salmon. This is my go to recipe for salmon patties. I have tried them with crackers but have found I like the breadcrumbs better. They are crunchy on the outside and tastey on the inside. I also like the convenience of the salmon in the pouch, no waste and not bone or skin to deal with, yuck!

How to Make Simple Salmon Cakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine first seven ingredients in medium sized mixing bowl. add beaten egg and 1/3 c. of the bread crumbs (*see note). form mixture into 4 balls. Roll salmon balls in remaining breadcrumbs; flatten into cakes about 1/2-inch thick. In skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Fry 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown.
  2. * Note: Instead of using 1/3 c. of the breadcrumbs, I usually use 1/2 c. and use the rest for the breading. Also, after putting mixture together I slide the bowl into a ziplock bag and place in the refrigerator until ready to patty up the mixture and fry. Instead of making into 4 patties, I use a serving spoon and scoop up enough mixture to fill the spoon. I usually get 7-8 smaller patties. I have also baked these and they turn out great. I recommend spraying them with cooking spray and baking on parchment in a 350-375 degree F. preheated oven and turning when browned on bottom. Continue to bake until both sides are golden brown.
