Maw-Maw’s Salmon Patties

29 Jan

Caleb’s mom wanted salmon patties last night, so Maw-Maw went to making them.

What you need:

  • 1 can of salmon
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 scoops (1 1/2 cups or so) of corn meal
  • oil for frying

What you do:

  • Mix together salmon, water, and corn meal.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet.
  • Make the salmon into patties, setting them into the oil.
  • Check patties to see if bottom is browned, then flip over to brown the other side.
  • Allow the patties to dry on a paper towels to absorb excess grease.

Step 4.

Maw-Maw made a suggestion I had never tried last night- eating salmon patties with tomato juice, salt, and pepper. Tomato really sets off the cornmeal flavor in the salmon patties, so I would definitely heed her advice in the future.

Thanks again, Maw-Maw, for making these delicious salmon patties and letting me take pictures of them!

    Looks fantastic. I had never heard of using cornmeal in salmon patties. I have always used flour, egg, salt, and pepper and then used oil to fry them. I will certainly try this with cornmeal – maybe even with tomato juice also real soon.

    Love love love Salmon Patties. It may leave an obtrocious smell in the house, but nothing evokes memories of Maw-Maw’s house much like fresh Salmon Patties does.

    Oh, yeah… Uh Huh….Just used Maw-Maw’s recipe for salmon patties with cornmeal and oh, yes, I will definitely be using that recipe from now on…I did half the way I have always made them with flour and egg and half with the new recipe…Not even close….Hands down the winner is the cornmeal recipe…Thanks for posting it….Oh, and please tell her thanks for introducing us to something that tastes so great…(Of course, I need some practice); I know mine are not nearly as good as hers, but for the first attempt….fantastic….
