Recipe Idea: Salmon Patties Excellent with Creamed Peas
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen, talking about one of my comfort foods—Salmon Patties. I like these fish cakes best when they are fried in a little oil, but my mom also made a Salmon Loaf exactly the same way except that she baked the loaf for about 40-45 minutes at 350F degrees.
Salmon Patties are especially good with White Gravy Creamed Peas, a milk gravy that contains nice, sweet peas. That’s the way my mom always served them. I love it. It’s my second favorite way to eat salmon (my first is Bourbon Salmon).

- 1 large size can of Alaska Salmon
- 1 egg
- 1/2 a medium onion, chopped (about a cup) or 4 green onions, chopped (white and tender green parts only)
- 1/2 cup cracker crumbs or cornflake crumbs
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Mix all of the ingredients until everything is thoroughly mixed.
- Split the mixture evenly into four parts. Shape each into a patty (like a hamburger patty).
- Heat oil in a skillet and fry for about 8-10 minutes per side until they are nice and browned and thoroughly cooked through.
- Serve with White Milk Gravy and Peas.
- If you would like to bake this as a Salmon Loaf, after you mix all the ingredients, oil a loaf pan and shape the mixture into a loaf.
- Put the salmon mixture in the loaf pan and bake it at 350F degrees for about 45 minutes until hot throughout.
- The top should also be nicely browned.
