Salmon Patties

Mum's Salmon Patties


  • 210 g tin red salmon
  • 2-3 medium sized potatoes (you want about equal quantities of salmon and potato - or adjust to your liking)
  • 1 small onion , finely chopped
  • 1 tbls chopped parsley
  • Salt (optional)
  • Oil for frying
  • Flour to coat patties


  1. Cook the onion - either steam or toss in the frying pan until tender
  2. Boil the potatoes in water until also tender; mash
  3. Combine the cooked onion, mashed potato, salmon, parsley and salt if using, in a bowl
  4. Form into little patties and toss in flour
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook patties until golden brown.

Recipe Notes

All the ingredients are cooked so you are really just trying to achieve a nice golden colour.  Suitable to freeze.  Once H was a little older I left the onion raw and it cooked enough in the pan alone. 
Try adding veggies like broccoli, grated carrot or sweet potato to the mix if you like.
