Salmon Patties

As long as you have the oil heated up for latkes, you might as well use it to make dinner.  Salmon patties are not something I grew up eating, this is from my husband’s family.  I got the recipe from my mother-in-law, who cooked by “dump this and then that” instructions.  After a few tries, I got the mixture right and added a few spices to give the patties a nice flavor.

I serve them with a side of spaghetti and marinara sauce because that’s how my husband’s grandmother served them.  I also include a green vegetable, though.


Salmon Patties

Salmon Patties


  • 3 cans boneless, skinless salmon
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Lemon pepper seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup oil for frying (I use grapeseed oil)


  1. In a bowl combine all ingredients. Use as much or as little of the spices as you like.
  2. Heat oil in a large frying pan until hot.
  3. Shape salmon mixture in to patties, about 3 inches in circumference.
  4. Fry patties in oil, flipping to cook both sides until browned
  5. If the patties stick when you try to turn them, then they are not browned yet. They will flip easily when they are browned.
