Here is how we make Salmon patties at Wild Heaven Farms:
2- 7 ounce cans of boneless/skinless salmon or 1 bigger can
1 large egg
2-3 shakes of celery seeds (finely chopped celery works, we just don’t like the texture in salmon patties)
chopped parsley to taste (celery tops can be substituted) this can be omitted if you have particular eaters who don’t like green in their food
shake or two of black pepper
crisco or olive oil for frying
1/2 sleeve saltine crackers
Drain salmon and mix egg into it with a fork in a medium sized bowl. Make sure you break up any big chunks in this step.
add celery seeds, parsley and pepper and mix well
now crumble the saltine crackers into the salmon mixture
Turn your stove burner to between medium high and medium heat and allow the pan to warm before adding the oil or shortening – you can even use bacon grease in a pinch, or because you want to, we won’t judge you!
Shape into patties- I use an ice-cream scoop like this one to get 6 even sized patties
If you like your patties extra brown, you can dip both sides into flour before adding them to the frying pan, but it isn’t necessary.
Add patties to the pan and fry on each side until golden brown.
That’s it, they are super easy and good for you too!
