Recipe Notes
  • You can use whatever type of cracker you have on hand. They act as a binder to help form the salmon patties.
  • You can use a combination of olive oil and butter.
  • This recipe makes six good-sized salmon patties.
  • Barbara substituted the shortening in the original recipe with olive oil or butter, and she uses a combination of both to fry her salmon patties.
  • Serve them on a bun with lettuce and tomato or as is with a side of ketchup. Barbara's daughters prefer the latter.
  • Try our low carb version: Low-Carb Salmon Patties recipe.
  • Canned salmon is a great pantry staple.

These would pair great with this Simple Mango Farro Salad.
