Salmon Patties


Even a colorful dish towel won't make a jar of canned salmon look good :-)
     After looking at that aren't you all just watering at the mouth to try this recipe?  Heads up though, if someone offers you a jar of canned salmon, even if it looks like this (it will), gladly accept it!  We are talking good eating!

     This is the first year I have canned all the excess salmon from my husband's summer fishing.  He fishes Lake Michigan aboard his boat the "Salmon Slayer".  He got his captain license last spring, and takes people out on charter fishing trips over the summer.  Fishing and hunting, his two passions......we eat it all.

Son-in-law Jason, & son Tyler, with a catch of salmon last summer.

     My kids and I have found out how easy a meal can be by opening a jar of salmon, usually using it just like tuna.  But, this is one of my favorite recipes. 

Salmon Patties

1 pint jar of canned salmon (or 1 can from the store)
1 egg
1/3 cup onion, minced
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cups oil (or lard) for frying.

Drain the salmon, save 2 TBL. of liquid in a small bowl

Mix together the salmon, egg, and minced onions till sticky.

Stir in the flour and seasoned salt (which I forgot in the picture - just
                                                                   pretend it's there)

Stir baking powder into the saved salmon juice. Then stir into salmon mixture.

Form into 4 patties.  Fry until golden brown

Crispy, crunchy yummy.

Those look incredible! I grew up eating salmon patties that my mama made and loved them.

Funny thing is that now that I am married and have been for twenty years, I have never fixed them. Don't know why..

Nice to visit with you. Amy

After 13 years, my husband finally got me to start eating salmon patties this year and boy do I regret missing out on all those years! They are so fantastic! And they freeze well (before frying) too.
