Salmon Patties

Lynn demonstrates how to make Salmon Patties.  These are made with canned salmon that you can keep in your pantry for a quick dinner.  The rest of the ingredients are probably things that you keep on hand.

Serves 4-6


  • 1 can (15-16 ounce) pink or red salmon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup minced onion
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/8 cup water
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Drain salmon and remove bones.  In a medium mixing bowl, mix salmon, egg and onion.  Stir in flour and cornmeal, baking powder, black pepper, Cajun seasoning, Old Bay seasoning, fresh parsley, lemon zest, and water.  

Form into small patties.

You can either bake them or fry them.  

To bake:

Preheat oven to 450°.  Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.

To fry:

Cover bottom of a skillet with vegetable oil and heat over medium high heat.  Add salmon patties and cook on first side about 5 minutes until browned and then turn over and fry for another 3-5 minutes until golden brown.
