Salmon Rice Patties

This special recipe came from our daughter-in-love, Kym.  She grew up eating salmon patties...made with rice...instead of the usual cracker crumbs many of us enjoyed.

(This is another yummy recipe found in my cookbook.)

We all know eating fish is good for us, and a great way to get those Omega - 3's.

It's simple and delicious.  It mixes/fries up for a quick meal anytime.

Kym now uses the 'envelopes' of salmon, like tuna, that has all the skin and bone removed.

We lived in Alaska for 8 years and enjoyed lots and lots of salmon. Hubby and his fishing buddy canned much of it too and we often enjoyed salmon patties or salmon salad.

Nothing ever quite compares to fresh!

But this is still a very tasty and nutritious meal.

Please give it a try and let me know what you think.


1 - 16 ozs. can salmon, drained, flaked, skin and bones removed
3 c. rice, cooked (or less?)
2 eggs


1 - 5 ozs. envelope salmon (already cleaned)
1 - 2 c. rice, cooked
1 egg

Mix ingredients together. Preheat skillet and melt a little butter in it or simply spray with Pam. Make patties and fry until browned and heated through.

Add another egg (or an egg white) if you need more 'glue' to hold it together.

  1. I am definitely trying this one! Being from Seattle I miss all that fresh, wonderful salmon, and it remains my favorite fish to this day. This looks great!

  2. Whenever we go to Florida, I INSIST that we eat "real" seafood at least once while we're there! :) This really sounds good and my kids love fish. We usually eat the crappie or stripper daddy catches, but I bet I could find an envelope of Salmon around these parts. Hugs to you and yours! T

  3. This looks delish!! I never made salmon cakes, but now I have a reason too!!

  4. I have never seen salmon patties made this way....I am definitely going to try this!!

  5. Hubby doesn't eat fish, but I do make salmon patties for myself when he is gone. This is a new twist that I am going to try next time. Hope everything is sort of getting back to "normal." Have a great weekend.

  6. This must be so crunchy and munchy - a light refreshing snack! I love fish very much and am always on the lookout for new fish recipes.So this is definitely a keeper:)

  7. These look delicious and your recipe is very easy to follow and duplicate. This is my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
