Family Favorite Salmon Patties

Carol *


I have been making these tasty salmon patties for many years. My family especially likes the lemon-dill sauce with them. They are good with or without the sauce. Yummy...

They are really good the next day cold on a bun with lettuce and a slice of tomato. If there are any left, that!!

Hope you enjoy these as much as my family does...

Savory and satisfying, these salmon patties are perfect for your next brunch, party or dinner! The creamy dill sauce on top makes for a wonderful presentation. For a lighter meal, you could serve these along side a simple tossed salad. So very easy to make! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Family Favorite Salmon Patties


  1. After cleaning the salmon, mix all patty ingredients together and form into patties. Coat lightly with additional bread crumbs on both sides and place in a shallow dish and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  2. Pan fry in olive oil until nicely browned on both sides. Place on paper towels and keep warm until ready to serve.
  3. Make the Lemon Dill sauce by melting the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour to form a smooth paste. Gradually stir in the milk; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice, salt and dill.
