Salmon Patty Recipes

Salmon Patty on a PlateIt's trendy to call salmon patties burgers now, and to charge a fin and a gill for them, but I'll stick with patties. This recipe is very economical and very easy. Adding potatoes and oats really stretches the salmon, and makes them a bit milder tasting - and it's easier to get kids to eat them! If you plan to have leftover mashed potatoes on hand, it makes these even easier to whip up when you need a fast, easy, and nutritious meal. The real twist here is that you bake the patties in a muffin tin, really reducing the fat and making them even healthier. I make a big batch and freeze some.


  • 2 cans salmon, drained. Pick the bones and skin out
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup finely minced onions
  • 1 - 2 tsp. lemon pepper or seasoning of choice
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice


Mix everything but the salmon in a bowl and let it soak into the oats for 5 minutes. Mix the salmon in thoroughly, but gently.

Spray 18 muffin cups (I'm lucky, I have a 12 cups tin and a 6 cups tin, so it works out perfectly) with baking spray. Fill each one just to the top with salmon mixture.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 45 minutes.

Servings: 9 - 18
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 45 Minutes

This recipe is a family favorite. It's great for evenings when I'm pressed for time and want to put a good meal on the table quickly. I just add a couple of vegetables as sides to the patties, and I have a meal in about 30 minutes.

Until I made these, I had not had any good salmon cakes since being diagnosed with Celiac disease 9 years ago. This time, I used gluten free bagels for thickening and they turned out to be delicious.


They are flavorful and crunchy, just like I like them. When I make these, I freeze the leftovers and heat them for another meal or just when I'm craving one.

I learned to love salmon at a very young age. We ate salmon a lot when I was a kid. These burgers are truly a great recipe!

Drain salmon, reserving 1/4 cup juice. Discard salmon bones and skin. In a bowl, combine the salmon, egg, flour and dill; mix well.


Stir baking powder into the reserved juice; add to the salmon mixture.

One can pink salmon
one fourth cup finely chopped celery
one forth cup finely chopped onion
one egg
one half cup crushed crackers
one tsp salt and pepper


Mix and scoop up some in your hand and make a patty. Holding the patty on one hand sprinkle a good portion of corn meal on the top then turn and do the other side. Place in a skillet of hot oil and when one side is brown turn them over. These are wonderful.

My recipe is not as elaborate as the two before me. To a can of salmon, I add crackers or bread crumbs, diced onion, egg and a little bit of milk to the consistency to hold it all together. I fry mine in bacon grease until they are nice and brown on both sides. Yummy~!
