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!

6 ounce cans honey boy salmon, drained and well shredded using a fork
3 Tbsp
finely minced green onions (use tops too!)
4 Tbsp
finely minced celery
1 2/3 c
fine, dry plain bread crumbs (divided)
1 large
2 Tbsp
mayonnaise (heaping tbsps)
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 to 3/4 c

How to Make Simple Salmon Patties


  • 1Mix 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.
  • 2Chill for at least an hour before frying.
  • 3Form 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.
  • 4Serve hot with cocktail sauce (I am also posting my Cocktail Sauce recipe), or other condiment of your choice.

    Makes 4 patties.
