Salmon Patties

I've been making these salmon patties for years and years. This is my mother's recipe and my family loves them.

  • 1 15 ounce can salmon, undrained
  • 1 egg
  • 1 sleeve of saltine crackers crushed
  • 3/4 cup cooking oil I use canola oil for cooking


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using your hands mix the ingredients together and shape into patties.
  • Place the patties in the hot oil and brown on each side. Turn the heat down and continue cooking on low for about 20 minutes turning often. Let cook until the patties are brown and crusty.


You can add onion, green pepper and some people roll theirs in cornmeal but the only way my family likes them is the recipe posted above.
