This is a new dish for me. I did not grow up eating very much salmon, and certainly not salmon patties. My sweet Granny has often talked about how she used to always make salmon patties – she just loves them! Until recently, that’s all I knew of them.
For the past two years I have been really trying to get lots of seafood into our diet, but it’s been really hard! Fresh wild-caught fish is expensive, so I have mostly bought frozen wild cod from Trader Joe’s. I’ve come up with many ways to serve it – fish balls, cod pot pie, baked cod, sauteed cod…. We’re so tired of cod. For real. And the husband was beginning to seriously dread “Fish Night.” I dreaded having to tell him it was “Fish Night!”
So, still determined to find a way to get fish into our diet, I bought canned wild salmon. And for some reason I decided to make salmon patties without really knowing much about them!
After several weeks of making them, this is our favorite recipe. Now the husband can’t wait for “Fish Night.” It’s one of his favorite meals!
These little salmon patties are so delicious! I love the texture – they have a perfect crust on the outside and a soft, creamy inside.
My grocery bill loves these patties, too! 🙂
I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
