Delicious Salmon Patties! My niece and nephew, who wouldn’t eat fish if I promised them candy for the rest of their lives, ate… this… seafood dish. I am not exaggerating when I say these fish patties were fantastic, with or without the cheese. We made both, and both were delicious.
The original salmon patties recipe called for things like sugar, flour, hellmann’s and all the other heart-clogging food, so I left those on the back burner and added a few things of our own. But I really appreciate the video that went with the recipe because otherwise, we would have shaped the patties all wrong.
So consider putting this salmon fish in your regular line-up and fill your families with more omega-3’s, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin D, selenium, protein, phosphorus, iodine, choline, pantothenic acid, biotin and potassium. Your body will thank you. LET’S MAKE SALMON PATTIES!
Delicious Salmon Patties
- 3 pounds salmon fillets - fresh, minced/ground later
- 1 stick butter - raw

- 2 shakes cayenne pepper

- Heat up a saute pan on medium and coat with butter.
- FORM PATTIES: Form each patty into the shape of a golf ball, roll in cheese (optional), place in a pan and press down to flatten it out just a little. (see NOTES #2)
