When you use this recipe, remember you can use canned salmon, or you can even use a couple of cans of solid-pack tuna!! This makes what I call "Faux Salmon Patties". Either way you make them, they are delicious!

How To Make simple salmon patties

  • 1
    Mix together first three ingredients, along with 2/3 Cup of the bread crumbs, reserving the rest for dredging. Add the egg, mayo, salt & pepper. Mix until very well blended.
  • 2
    Chill for at least an hour before frying.
  • 3
    Form into balls, then flatten out by hand into patties, about 5 to 6 inches in diameter. Dredge in remaining bread crumbs, then place in hot oil (Med-High heat) and fry until nicely browned, about 6 to 8 minutes on each side. When done, remove from oil and drain the excess oil on paper towels.
  • 4
    Serve hot with cocktail sauce (I am also posting my Cocktail Sauce recipe), or other condiment of your choice. Makes 4 patties.
