Salmon Patties

This is an old recipe that I found on a dog eared, stained recipe card. The condition of the card is enough to make me think the recipe was well used and is a good.

You can serve the patties as the main dish with a vegetable and potatoes on the side or you can make a more elegant dish with a good sauce and garnishes.


  • 1 can salmon
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 tsp. parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce (or to taste)
  • 1/4 cup cracker crumbs
  • 3 tbsp. butter or margarine (softened)


Mix all ingredients together. Make into patties and fry until thoroughly heated.
