Cool-jams Salmon Patties

Cool-jams Salmon  Patties

I always keep a can of canned salmon in my pantry for a quick dinner like Salmon patties. This is an excellent recipe for canned or fresh salmon patties. This recipe is from the Oregon coast. My family loves these! 


1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon

2 tablespoons butter

1 medium onion, chopped

2/3 cup cracker crumbs

2 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 teaspoon dry mustard

3 tablespoons shortening


1. Drain the salmon, reserving 3/4 cup of the liquid. Flake the meat. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium- high heat. Add onion, and cook until tender.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the onions with the reserved salmon liquid, 1/3 of the cracker crumbs, eggs, parsley, mustard and salmon. Mix until well blended, then shape into six patties. Coat patties in remaining cracker crumbs.

3. Melt shortening in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook patties until browned, then carefully turn and brown on the other side.
