Momma's Salmon Patties

I've seen plenty of variations around of this salmon croquette recipe but I'm partial to my Momma's of course! She used to make these growing up and it was one of my favorite meals. I was happy when I finally perfected the recipe on my own.


1 can Wild Caught Alaskan salmon

1 egg, local & free-range

1/2 - 1 cup organic sweet onion, diced

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

A few tablespoons of oil for frying - I've used olive, organic extra virgin unrefined coconut oil and butter before. Whatever is on hand.

1. Empty can of salmon in a bowl. Don't be alarmed by the flesh and bones! Speaking of bones, the bones are small and completely edible. I believe they even contain calcium and thus some health benefit. However, to suit our family's palette, I remove the bones. If you carefully separate the fish into chunks, it makes it easier to remove the backbones in one piece.

2. Using a fork, mash the fish.

3. Add in diced onion, egg and whole wheat flour. Combine ingredients.

4. Take a scoop of the fish mixture and form into patties.

5. Fry for a few minutes on each side until browned.

I usually sprinkle my cooked patties with a bit of Redmond Real Salt before serving.

That's it! Simple yet tasty.

Salmon patties were often served when I was growing up. I should make them for my family. Thanks for reminding me.
