Retro Salmon Patties

Retro Salmon Patties at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

My Mother always kept a can of Pink Salmon in the cabinet. If we had unexpected company you knew the can of Salmon was coming down and Salmon Patties would soon be on the table. We lived inland so fresh fish was Catfish, Crapie, and mostly any other fish caught in the river or lake, fresh fish like Salmon would not have been on our table and wasn't. I love Salmon Patties, and every once in a while I really get hungry for them. There are hundred's of recipes for Salmon Patties, but this is our families recipe and I am happy to share it with you today. When I start making these patties, I can remember my mother standing in the kitchen with her apron on top of her "house dress" with her hair ever so carefully curled. A great memory to enjoy as I make up these delicious Salmon Patties with my apron over my yoga pants and top, wearing my running shoes, time move's on, but our Salmon Patties remain the same.

  1. Those look delicious - my mother made them for me as a child and continues to fix them for herself these days. I love recipe nostalgia - like a trip back in time. (:

  2. Now I'm hungry for salmon patties! I don't make them often, but we all love them when I do. I think I have a can in the pantry too!

  3. Thank you for posting this! This is the same recipe my mother used to make but never wrote down the recipe. She always served it with mashed potatoes, pork & beans, biscuits and white gravy!

  4. My mom used to make something similar. I'd forgotten all about it. Great post. Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner party - enjoy the rest of your week!

  5. You brought back great memories. My mom made a similar salmon patty decades ago but used crushed crackers instead of bread crumbs. I think I need to make these! Thanks for sharing. Coming from What's for Dinner?

  6. Salmon patties was my Dad's favorite. Yours look great.
    Hope you stop by Over The Moon Linky party since you are being featured.
