As the Lenten Season is upon us, (I know not everyone observes), I am always reminded of a comforting meal that my Mother made for us, regularly, on Friday's through Lent. It was a staple in our home, which was on a budget, consisting of 7 kids and my Parents.

My Wife and I still enjoy this meal, as much as I did growing up, and it is still a top five all time favorite meal for me. It is especially delicious when served with Creamed Peas and Fried Potatoes.

I have refined my Mothers basic recipe, which is delicious, to accommodate my tastes and I hope you will enjoy it too!!

How to Make Salmon Patties


  1. Because this requires pan frying, I highly recommend using a well seasoned cast iron skillet. There really is no substitute but any good heavy skillet will do.
  2. Drain and clean salmon of all bones and skin.
  3. In a large bowl combine all ingredients, except cheese sauce, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Refrigerate up to an hour to let flavors blend and mixture to firm up a bit.
  5. Add Butter and Olive Oil to pan over Medium High Heat.
  6. Form Salmon mixture into 2"-3" balls and place in skillet a couple at a time. Don't crowd the skillet. Let sit for about a minute then gently press down and form into a patty about 1/2" - 3/4" thick.
  7. Continue cooking for about 3-4 minutes per side or until a nice crust forms. These should be crispy on the outside and tender and moist inside, not dry. The caramelization on each side adds an essential depth of flavor and texture to these patties.
  8. Remove patties and drain on paper towel. Heat Cheese Sauce, about 1 - 1 1/2 minutes in microwave, don't over do it. Serve Patties hot and drizzle moderately with cheese sauce.
  9. Enjoy!
