Southern Fried Salmon Patties

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Dari Donovan

Salmon patties are quick and easy. I got this recipe from my son's babysitter many years ago. My son is now 20 and we still eat these at least a few times a month. These are very moist when done.

The best Salmon Patty EVER! I will use this recipe from now on when making these...scouts honor! Easy to prepare, moist and delish. I only added some Dijon mustard, personal preference. Served with Orzo with Parmesan and Basil #79431 they went well together. Thank you for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Open salmon and drain thoroughly. Place drained salmon in mixing bowl and flake evenly with a fork.
  2. Add onion, corn meal, flour, mayonnaise, and egg. Stir until well blended.
  3. Shape the mixture into patties about the size of an average burger or less.
  4. Cook in oil in skillet over medium heat until browned on each side. Turn once while frying.
  5. Note: The mayonnaise helps the patties hold their shape and keeps them from being too dry.
