Salmon patties are the bommmmmmmmmmmmmmb! Don't sit on them! Open them up and use them!!! Dip them in a nice ketsup/mustard sauce too. Deeeeeelish.

An egg, some bread crumbs and corn meal is all you'll need, with two cans of salmon.

Can I come over?

Cool! Thanks for the info! If I decide to go with salmon salad... would I make it just like I would make tuna salad? I've got Miracle Whip, dill, lemon and celery. (Does it need to be cooked first, or is canned salmon precooked?) Yes.. this is my first can. :)

I think canned is precooked.....no? Really not sure. Check the can, should say. It's just like canned tuna, you dont have to cook that.

Canned IS pre-cooked.

We make our salmon patties with 2 cans salmon, 2 eggs, bread crumbs or cracker crumbs, a little Old Bay seasoning, other seasonings to taste (I'm fond of a little lemon pepper)....then fry till brown. Delicious!

Stir it into pasta next time you make pasta with a fishy sauce.


Or put it on a piece of bread, then put another piece of bread on top of it.

Y'all are making me want to go out and buy some canned salmon. Those salmon patties sound delicious.

You could make salmon kedgeree. Just mix the salmon with cooked rice, milk, and butter, and add plenty of salt and pepper.

Some people add curry powder too, but I don't like curry powder.


I usually use 3 cans Bumblebee salmon (oh, how I miss it; they don't have it here so unless my Mom mails it to us we don't have kedgeree, because salmon here, canned or not, is disgusting and flavorless) to about 6 cups cooked rice. So if you have one cane you could mix it with 2 cups of rice and see how that works. I mix it on the stovetop, sauteeing the salmon in butter first, then gradually adding milk, rice, and more butter to taste, until it's all mixed well. It sounds very basic but it really is delicious.

Thanks for the ideas! I ended up making salmon patties with shredded zucchini, onions and lemon/pepper spices. They were good!
Thanks again!

Why did I look at this thread just before lunch? Now my mouth is watering and it's still an hour before I can get home.
I love salmon patties. Sometimes I make them with a little cheese on top, with lettuce, and tomato between burger buns.
As SpongeBob fans, my kids call them crabby patties. :D

Throw it out or give it to a cat. I hate canned salmon. Anything you can make with canned salmon tastes 100% better with fresh.

Anyone ever considered using mashed potato flakes in their salmon patties instead of bread? Makes them brown beautifully and they are delicious.

We threw our can out. We had no idea what to do with it and when we opened it, it just looked so unappetizing.

Canned salmon is excellent for patties; never thought of using it for anything else. Plus watching your cat go berserk when you open the can is worth the admission price right there...

They were out of fillets in the market! Can you believe it? A grocery store in the Pac. NW is out of salmon fillets!! I was surprised there weren't any protesters out in front of the store. :) They had steaks, but I don't 'do' bones, so I thought I'd give canned a try. It wasn't too bad, but it was a special edition "Wild Alaskan" salmon.

1 can salmon, dry rolled oats until you have a thick mush, chopped garlic to taste, black pepper, salt to taste, tbs. olive oil.

Heat frying pan to half heat, add olive oil to cover bottom of the pan, pat out patties into small hamburger shapes, fry until golden brown and then flip for same. Makes 10-12 cakes, which is about right for 2 people, since they don't taste right the next day.

No eggs, flour, or anything else needed.

I have a great recipe for salmon patties. I made them once. Too bad I'm never make them again; opening that first can for the first time induced all sorts of squick.

Salmon noodle casserole is a glorious variation of tuna noodle casserole.

We ate it quite often growing up - It was an affordable alternative to meat.

We'd saute it in butter (bones and all) with onions (and a lil salt and lots of pepper) and then put it on top of a mound of cooked rice.

Voila! A quick, cheap, tasty dinner. ;)

I like it mixed with cream cheese, a little lemon juice, Tabasco, and finely chopped green onions. Great on crusty bread.
But I'd rather have fresh or smoked salmon any day.

This.

I had so much of it as a kid it wouldn't bother me if I never saw it again. But I love the fresh and smoked salmon.

Ahhhhh, lurve me some smoked salmon with cream cheese and capers on a poppy-seed bagel. Oh, yes I do! :)

Dawg bless lox, cream cheese, onions, capers and bagels. I prefer either a salt bagel or an egg bagel. But I'll take what I can get.

Smoked salmon, not canned. Canned salmon should stay in the can.

But still. CAPERS?!

:cry::scared::Wha:

Seriously. They creep me the hell out. I can't even look at their jars in the store.

Grilled salmon with butter-lemon sauce and just a sprinkling of capers is divine.

Salmon goes well with dill, but always remember tarragon ruins everything.

Swordfish steak is wonderful with capers too. As is halibut.

And have you ever tried tarragon in a wild mushroom pate? Yeah. No meat. Chopped wild mushrooms cooked in olive oil and butter and garlic, chilled, pressed, and sliced for serving? It might not sound so, but it's wonderous.
