Grandma’s Salmon Patties are an easy recipe that uses canned salmon and is one of grandmas most requested meals!
My husband is not a seafood fan but he loves these Salmon Patties and so do our boys! This recipe is one of his grandma’s staples and everyone from the farm help to the Fedex man have been known to stop by when she is making them!
Salmon Patties make the perfect family friendly, Friday meal during Lent but are enjoyed here all year long.
Grandma’s Salmon Patties
Grandma insists that you must use the red label Royal Salmon canned salmon. I have the best luck finding it at Walmart. But, you could also use leftover fresh salmon or any other variety canned salmon.
This recipe is easy to make, the hardest part is removing the bones. They are soft enough that some people don’t bother removing them but I always make sure to remove as many as possible. The only other tricky part is to get the moisture right. If the mixture is too wet it will be hard to make the patty and if it is too dry it will make the patty dry. That is why the recipe card says 5-7 crackers so you can add the amount needed.
Grandma always serves them with fried potatoes (yum) and creamed peas.
- 1 (14.75 ounce) can of Salmon
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 eggs
- 5-7 Saltine crackers, crushed
- A squirt of lemon juice
- Butter or oil for frying
- Drain the salmon and remove the skin and bones.
- In a medium bowl mix remaining ingredients.
- If the mixture seems to wet and another cracker or two.
- Divide mixture into 4 equal parts and form patties.
- Heat butter/oil in a large skillet and cook on both sides until brown.
