Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy salmon patties recipe that literally comes together in minutes. Plus, this recipe makes use of that canned salmon in your pantry that you have been wondering what to do with. And no matter what you call them….salmon patties or salmon cakes…these are moist, flavorful, and just simply delicious!
A Pantry Staple: Canned Salmon
Canned fish of any kind is great to keep on hand in your pantry for preparing quick weeknight meals. But canned salmon is probably one of the most versatile canned fish to stock. You can turn it into a dip, top a salad with it, or create a crowd-pleasing favorite: salmon patties.
Perfect Weeknight Meal
Salmon Patties make a delicious weeknight meal because you can literally mix up the ingredients in minutes, shape the patties, and place them in a frying pan to cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Then, in the blink of an eye, dinner is ready!
Vital Choice Seafood
If you can’t find canned salmon or the seafood that you’re looking for at your local grocery store, try ordering from Vital Choice Seafood. My grocery store was out of canned salmon, so for my fish meals, I purchased freshly frozen salmon, white fish, and other products from Vital Choice, including the canned salmon that I used to make this recipe.
