Winter Food 2 —Salmon Patties

Salmon Patties


  • 1 12 oz. can Salmon, deboned.
  • 1/4 cup celery, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup sweet peppers, minced
  • 1/4 mushrooms, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 sleeve saltines, crushed (or the breading of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (ish)

Mix all ingredients except oil in a medium bowl.  Heat oil in a skillet or sauté pan to about 350-400 degrees.  Form salmon mix in patties about three inches across and half an inch thick.  Fry both sides in oil for about two to three minutes.  Pat dry.  Makes about 12 patties.

This one I came up with on my own.  My mom used to make us salmon croquettes (ball-shaped, fried salmon and vegetables) but I never got the recipe.  This is a really good one for people with crowded schedules.  The whole batch can be made in about a half hour (maybe forty-five minutes if you need to mince by hand), and the cooked croquettes reheat well and are even good cold or in a sandwich.
