Kittencal's Salmon Cakes/Patties

"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 :)"

  • Drain the 4 cans salmon well and place in a large bowl; flake with a fork.
  • Add in all remaining ingredients except the flour and oil; mix to combine (if the mixture is very moist add in more cracker crumbs using only enough to hold together).
  • Cover and refrigerate for 2 or more hours.
  • Shape into desired size patties.
  • Place about 1/2 cup flour into a shallow bowl or a plate.
  • 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).
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Fry the patties about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Delicious!

    I am shocked I have not rated this yet because I have been making it for years. I hated salmon patties until this recipe. The onions are key for me. I use panko instead of flour. They are so good. We tend to eat them on buns like a sandwich and we also like them cold--I like a lot of food cold but these are excellent. Thanks Kittencal. You have so many fantastic recipes.

    Good recipe. I made 16 mini patties from this recipe with 2 modifications: The final dip was in panko instead of flour and I sprayed with oil and baked at 375 F instead of frying. 10 min on each side and broiler for browning afterwards.
