Salmon Patties

Salmon patties are wonderful to eat all year round.  Served with rice,  mash or salad,  they make a wonderful tasty meal.

1 410 g tin of pink salmon
1 stick of celery finely diced
1 large potato cooked and mashed
1 medium carrot grated
2 eggs
Salt,  pepper,  parsley,  dried onion flakes and garlic granules to taste
1/2 cup of dried seasoned bread crumbs
Juice of 1 lemon

¾ cup of milk
1 cup of plain flour
1 ½ cups of dried seasoned bread crumbs
Olive oil for cooking

 Drain the juices from the salmon and flake it in a large bowl.  Add the celery,  potato,  carrot,  1 egg,  lemon juice, 1/2 cup of bread crumbs and seasonings.  Mix well.  Line up three bowls on the bench.  One with flour,  one with egg and milk mixed together and the last one with the seasoned bread crumbs.

Spoon the salmon mixture into balls using a dessert spoon.  Roll in the flour,  roll in the egg mixture then coat with the bread crumbs.  Once all the patties are done,  cook in a fry pan with some olive oil until browned on each side.  Flatten the patties with a spatula while they cook. Alternatively,  spray the patties with olive oil and cook in the oven for about 40 minutes at 180 degrees.

Makes about 12 - 15 patties which is enough for  5 - 6 people.


*  Patties can be frozen.  I freeze them in meal sizes as well as in bundles of 2 or 4

* Salmon patties are wonderful in a wrap with salad or as a toasted sandwich.

 *  This recipe can be multiplied. I use 4 – 5 tins of salmon at a time and freeze most of the patties for future meals.

 *  Other veggies can be grated and added to the mixture.  Zucchini and pumpkin work well.


  1. Yum. These look so good. Looking forward to making a batch on the weekend. Thanks for this recipe Wendy. Lisa (o:

  2. I just adore Salmon cakes, my darling mum would make them often, especially on Fridays and Easter when we didn't eat meat. I still don't eat meat on most Fridays, silly really, all these years later. Salmon cakes are a delight, easy to make and just delicious. Thanks for reminding me of them. Have a lovely Friday.

  3. I love salmon patties! I've never used celery in mine, but have some in the fridge I need to use. I'm going to try it. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. We have a salmon patty recipe but this one I will have to try! Your recipe seems to make more and I'm all for making meals stretch that little bit further! They also look very delicious!

  5. Our kids used to love these in their lunch boxes. We have fish patties quite regularly in this household. They are great camping food as well.

  6. Wendy do you freeze them crumbed and uncooked or cooked and cooled?

    1. Cooked then cooled. I freeze them in lots of 2 and 4 to cater for whoever is home for dinner.

  7. I keep dried potato flakes in pantry to make these - 1 cup of potato & 1 cup of hot water - they are really an instant meal with some veg - easy to do when camping as well
