Kittencal's Salmon Cakes/Patties

READY IN: 2hrs 6mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Plan ahead the salmon mixture needs to be chilled for 2 hours before shaping, this also work using cooked leftover fresh salmon --- for the very best flavor do not use all pink salmon use all red or half red and pink --- I have this yielding for 12 patties that amount is only a guideline it wil depend on the size you make the patties you may make them any size desired, if you have a large family to feed using one more can of salmon won't hurt --- these are just as delicious eaten cold in fact my family prefers them cold :)

I love salmon cakes! They always bring me back to my childhood -- and that's a good thing! I thought about cutting the recipe in half but decided against it. I made all the patties and froze half of them for another day. We had these with Recipe #381370. Absolutely delicious! Thanks Kitt! Another recipe to go into make this often file!

  3. Cover and refrigerate for 2 or more hours.
  4. Shape into desired size patties.
  5. Place about 1/2 cup flour into a shallow bowl or a plate.
  6. Carefully coat each patty in the flour, then place the coated patties onto a large plate (have all the patties coated before starting to fry).

  8. Fry the patties about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  9. Delicious!
