Salmon patties are one of my favorite things to have for breakfast. I’ve been making them since I was a teen so I have mastered the patty. For sure! That’s how you know you are southern for real.
Ask yourself… Can I make a salmon patty?
If not then we gotta throw your entire Southern claim all away. Revoke your status. Deem you a city slicker until you get this whole patty thing down. I will help you out today because I know it can be heart breaking to know that yes… it’s really that serious.
1 can of salmon
cap full of lemon juice
Lawry’s seasoned salt
1 tablespoon of Prepared Horseradish
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup of chopped onions
**tarragon** My secret ingredient!!!
panko bread crumbs
cornmeal to batter
Drain the liquid from the salmon as best you can. Then put the salmon in a bowl to mix in your ingredients. Mix togther salmon, egg, lemon juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce and onions. Then season the mix liberally with tarragon, garlic, and seasoned salt. Continue to mix it thoroughly. Then sprinkle in panko crumbs enough to bind the mixture. If it’s too dry add some more worcestershire sauce.
Spoon out and shaped them into balls. Then to make it easier I put some cornmeal on a plate and gently batter the patties.
On medium heat fry the patties on one side to a golden brown. Gently flip, press it down to flatten slightly and let fry until golden brown. Flip again. And you’re done!
