"This recipe is an old family favorite that we enjoy from time to time. It's hearty, flavorful and great alternative to hamburgers! Substitute cubed cooked potatoes for the bread, if you like." — Donna

1 (14.75 ounce) can
salmon, undrained and flaked
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil for frying
Excellent and with such simple ingredients. I always make this with leftover salmon, not a fan of canned fish. I just double the ingredients if I have more salmon. A nice variation is to saute 1 tablespoon of finely minced garlic and parsley (fresh or dried) in some olive oil (appx. 1 tablespoon), then add to the mixture. The oil adds moistness and the garlic adds a fantastic flavor and aroma, just like in the restaurants. I've added dill, garlic powder, garlic salt, paprika, oinion powder, whatever I have on hand for more flavor. And definitely serve with garlic aioli or garlic mayonaise. (Mayo - 1/2 cup mayonaise, 1 garlic clove minced, dash of paprika and lemon juice.) Serve a small dollop on top and you're dining in style. My kids love this too. Nice fpr small ones just learning to chew since they can mash this easily in their mouths. Nice company dinner too!
Good basic recipe, but lacked flavor. I used 1/2 cup bread crumbs, two eggs, and added some minced garlic. Also added juice of half of one lemon, chili powder, some jalapeno, and honey. Broiled in the oven instead of frying. Good way to use canned salmon.
This was really good, but I was surprised to see that nobody else had the same problem as I did. I didn't drain the salmon and my mixture was like soup. I ended up having to add an extra tablespoon of flour and at least 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs too. I'd def drain the salmon next time.
This was a very easy recipe. Also, we don't eat fried foods so I just broiled it in the oven. It was great!
This is a great recipe. I did, however, change a couple of things. I drained the salmon and added a little lemon juice to the mix. I also added a pinch of dill weed, onion powder, and habanero hot sauce. I cooked mine in olive oil instead of the vegetable oil and only used about 1/3 cup. I will definitely make these again.
These are good! Very easy. I used left over salmon and rye bread and did not use oil, pan grilled using PAM.
Really good! I followed the directions exactly with the exception of adding a little Old Bay. Excellent! Thanks for sharing!
Delicious in its simplicity! E1 loved them. I added cayenne & onion powders along w/ a little italian seasoning and parsley flakes.
