Canned salmon patties

This was the original recipe and I quadrupled it a bunch of times to use up our salmon:)

I can canned salmon, drained 14.3 ounces ( I have become an expert on how to take the bones out of these easily. Just pour out the contents carefully and use a knife to slide up and remove the bones.)

Mix in a bowl the following:

  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire
  • 5 saltine crackers-crushed
  • chopped onion (I used 1 tsp dried)
  • 1 egg
  • then add the salmon

Mix them all together thoroughly.  I then formed them into patties. I heated some oil in a heavy duty skillet and fried them.  I flipped them when they were browned. I have learned the less the better in a pan.

Place them on a rack when finished frying. You can do paper towels, but my “southern” friends told me to use a rack it tastes better.

I put them in a large tupperware container and refrigerated them.  My guys ate these for days.  They loved them.

I mixed up some miracle whip, relish, and salt and pepper for some tartar sauce.
