Tasty patties cooked in a skillet that are perfect topped with fresh lettuce, tomato, and a side of fresh or canned pineapple. 


  • 1 can salmon, 16 oz (Use canned salmon with bones to get extra calcium.)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • cold water
  • 1/4 cup minced celery (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon green pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs or cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


1. Wash fresh vegetables (if using).
2. Collect, mince, and measure all ingredients before starting to prepare the recipe.
3. Open salmon, and drain liquid into a liquid measuring cup. Add lemon juice and cold water to the salmon liquid to make ½ cup liquid total, and set aside.
4. Put the salmon in a separate mixing bowl. Mix in the celery (if using), green pepper (if using), and onion.
5. In another small bowl, beat the eggs. Then, add them to the salmon mixture. 
6. Add the bread or cracker crumbs, flour, pepper, and the salmon liquid mixture to the salmon mixture, and stir until all ingredients are mixed together.
7. Use ⅓ cup measuring cup to measure salmon mixture. Shape into a ½ inch thick patty, and place on a plate. Repeat to make 6 patties.
8. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, then add 3 patties.
9. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes (or until golden brown) on each side.
10. Remove patties from skillet, and place on a clean paper towel-lined plate to drain. Cook remaining 3 patties, then serve immediately.  Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours. Eat within 3 to 5 days.

This is basically the way I have made <br/>my salmon patties for years. (I thought <br/>I made it up!) My family has always <br/>enjoyed it. It's quick and easy and I <br/>usually have the ingredients on hand.
Easy to make by bachelors! Not fishy tasting at all and all healthy ingredients. I've made this twice now. My only suggestion: you might want to add some extra spices. I added tumeric, for example.
I added some garlic powder and lemon peper for a little more flavor :)
I have made this recipe straight and our class participants love it. I make it without milk sometimes and add the whole contents of the can of salmon instead of draining the broth.
