Easy to Make Salmon Patties

Of course, when I was putting the recipe together, I got the “that looks gross” from my kids. You know that look right?!

Let’s just say that afterwards, they loved them and asked if I could start making them each week. No, I will not do that because I like to make different things, however, I am game to make them at least once a month.

One of the wonderful things about Salmon patties are that they are versatile in the fact that you can use either fresh salmon or canned. For our recipe though, I used canned salmon.

Before you get started on this old fashioned recipe that is a time-tested favorite, here are a few suggestions.

How Do I Keep Them From Falling Apart?

To make your patties stay together, you will need a binder such as eggs and an extender like breadcrumbs to create the “glue” so to speak that keeps the protein together.

What Do You Eat With This Dish? 

We normally eat asparagus or rice; however you could also do sweet potato fries, a pasta salad, or a crunchy side salad.

Do I have to Remove the Small Bones? 

Honestly, it’s a personal choice. I prefer to as it’s an odd texture to me, however, it’s totally up to you.

Salmon is one of those proteins that you can make in a variety of ways. Another way to serve up salmon is by making an orange glaze and baked it in the oven.

Step by Step Directions

This Salmon patty recipe comes together quickly. All you will need is two cans of salmon, eggs, mayo, panko bread crumbs.

Of course, you can also pick up dill, chives, and lemons to serve along with the salmon. My kids had their patty with a bun and added cheese…. yes, I know, but they are kids and for one of mine, who says, “cheese is life”, eats cheese with everything!

Below is a quick breakdown of the directions. To get the full instructions and shopping list, go down to the bottom of the post. There you will find the full recipe and a printable recipe card.

Step 1: Drain the salmon and add it to the large mixing bowl. 

Step 2: You can elect to debone the salmon if you wish. I do just because I don’t like textures like that, however, they are edible.

Step 3: Add in the other ingredients and mix them together.

Step 4: Heat the oil in the skillet and while the oil is heating, shape the patties into circles (like a hamburger).

Step 5: Cook the patties for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown.

Step 6: Serve with dill, chives, or lemon or with a side of rice.

*this mixture will be very moist*
