I have a very sentimental connection to Salmon Patties because it’s the very first meal my husband made for me when we started dating. <3 That was almost 9 years ago and it’s about dang time I add this recipe to my blog! This salmon patties recipe has evolved over the years and it differs slightly from the original recipe my husband used to make. His recipe leaves out the bread crumbs but other than that they’re the same salmon patties that won my heart all those years ago. ;)
Canned pink salmon are perfect for making salmon patties because they crumble to the perfect consistency and have a great taste. Just make sure to remove as many bones as you can beforehand. It may seem tedious, but if you start with the “spine,” most of the bones come off right along with it. And keep in mind that salmon bones are extremely thin and soft so it won’t be harmful or even noticeable if some get lost in the mixture.
After removing the bones, the rest of the recipe is a breeze! In a large bowl, you’ll mix the salmon, egg, bread crumbs and spices until everything is well blended and smooth. You’ll then separate the mixture into 6 even salmon patties, pressing each one firmly in your hands to prevent them from falling apart in the skillet. I used a fairly large skillet that was able to fit all 6 patties at the same time, which saved on overall cook time. The patties took approximately 10 minutes to cook (5 minutes on each side). Simple as that!
The end results are juicy, flavorful, satisfying salmon patties that would give any 5-star meal a run for its money! Salmon patties also pair great with Mac & Cheese or your choice of salad. So, go ahead and give this Salmon Patties Recipe a try and I hope it becomes a staple in your household as well!
