You Can’t Go Wrong With Nana’s Salmon Patties!

I never expected this recipe. I knew fish can be made into patties, but I have never encountered a recipe that tells me to use salmon as the main ingredient. At least not until now. It really came as a surprise to me.

And get this? These patties did not have an overpowering fish taste to them. Apparently, salmon is a very mild fish. So, if you like fish but you aren’t big on a strong sea-creature flavor, salmon is the way to go matey! My kids even enjoyed these patties.



1 (7.5 oz.) can red salmon, drained

1/4 cup finely diced onion

1/4 cup finely diced red pepper

1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1 Eggland’s egg

1/2 cup fresh whole wheat bread crumbs (not dried)

1 tsp Bertolli olive oil, for frying



Place drained salmon in a bowl and mash with a fork.

Mix with onion, red pepper, parsley, egg, and crumbs.

Shape into four patties.

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat and cook patties for about 5 minutes until browned and cooked through, turning once.



Quick tip: You can make fresh bread crumbs in a food processor, by processing a slice of whole wheat bread, crust removed.
