Growing up, I wouldn't touch salmon. But now it's one of my favorite fish. This is a great switch from the grilled salmon that is so popular today. And the bake option lets you get a healthier result.

How to Make Susan's Salmon Patties

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mash salmon well with a fork. You can remove bones first, but I leave them in. Stir in all ingredients except the stuffing, buttermilk, and seasoned flour. Mix well.
  • 2Fold in one cup of the stuffing and blend well. If it looks too wet, add more stuffing. If it looks too dry, add a little buttermilk until you get a semi-wet paste that can be shaped into patties. Make patties or flattened balls about 2-1/2" in diameter.
  • 3There are two ways you can cook these, either frying or baking.
  • 41) to fry: Roll the patties lightly in the flour, breadcrumbs, or cornmeal. Heat oil over medium high heat in a heavy skillet. Fry quickly on each side until nice and brown. You may have to adjust heat down to prevent burning. Drain on paper towels and keep warm in oven.
  • 52) to bake: Roll lightly in flour, breadcrumbs, or cornmeal. Grease a baking sheet well with oil. Place patties on baking sheet about 1 inch apart, and bake at 425 degrees about 15-20 minutes, turning once, until nicely browned.
