The Best Salmon Patties Recipe You’ll Ever Make

This recipe is a family favorite for many years. I modified the original recipe and made some changes. Add the lemon juice, grated onion, and dill seeds. Finally, fry in butter. It is said to be a “Recipe to Die For” by my friends. It was delicious cold straight from the can, and we would! It must be our Finnish heritage.”

This salmon patties recipe was a hit with us. This recipe is super simple to make, which is always a plus. The patties are enhanced with fresh vegetables that add some flavor and texture. This recipe is perfect for salmon lovers. It is so delicious that no one will guess it was canned. We enjoyed the buttery crust and delicious flavor. Scarlett offered several options for serving. We chose fresh lemon with a bit of dill. Yum!
