Supreme Salmon Patties and Matthew and Coco

First off:  for those of you who have asked about our adorable grandson Matthew, I thank you so much for thinking of him!





Matthew is 4 weeks old now, weighing in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces and is a sweet delight.  That’s Daddy holding him in the picture and his babysitter Coco supervising. 

Kathy brought 2 adorable Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers along with her when she married our son Matt.  Coco, the younger one, is amazing with the baby!  She leaves Matthew’s side only for the essentials and tries her best to get her licks in every chance she gets.  When we hold Matthew, the look on her face begs us, “Please let me have him ~ I know I could do better!”  I know she and Coco will be best friends as Matthew grows up and so will Bella, who leaves the babysitting to Coco most of the time. 

Now for a great dish I hope you all will enjoy:

I guarantee you’ll like these salmon patties if you adore salmon the way I do!

This recipe is from an old friend and it is chocked full of flavorful ingredients to go with the canned salmon ~ corn kernels, Dijon mustard and paprika, for starters.  Mom used to make them but just added eggs, cracker crumbs and onion.  This is not my mom’s salmon patties!

The corn adds a crispy sweetness with the Dijon mustard and lemon juice adding zesty flavors.   I used “pink” salmon.  Refrigerating the patties for an hour ensures that they will not crumble when fried.  These are simple and easy to make for fast dinner.  Just flip them carefully when frying!






I really like canned salmon straight out of the can!  Do you?


Supreme Salmon Patties

Ingredients:

2 cans (7.5 oz. each) salmon, drained
½ cup finely-diced onion
½ cup corn kernels, canned or frozen
Pepper, to taste
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 dashes hot sauce
½ teaspoon paprika
1 egg
½ cup crushed saltine crackers
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil

Method:

Place salmon in a large bowl and combine with onion, corn and pepper.
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, Worcestershire and hot sauces and paprika.
Gently fold into salmon mixture.
Lightly beat the egg.
Fold into the salmon mixture along with ½ cup of the cracker crumbs.
Place remaining crumbs on large plate.
Form the salmon mixture into 8 patties.
Coat them with the panko bread crumbs carefully.
Refrigerate, loosely covered, for one hour.
Melt butter/oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Cook the patties 3-4 minutes per side, pressing down on them slightly with the spatula.
Add more oil or butter if necessary.
Remove and drain on paper towel.
Serve with lemon wedges or tartar sauce.



They’re tasty ~ scrumptiously good!!!

  1. Pam that is a great photo. I can't believe how cute Matthew is in that picture...and Coco too! I'll bet you are having the time of your life with them.

    How can I not try a recipe when it's called Supreme? I usually don't like corn in things, but this sounds like it would really work well. I am going to bookmark this one! Thanks for sharing!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Matthew is such a little sweetie. I haven't had salmon patties since I lived at home 44 years ago. They sure look good.

  4. Your grand baby boy is so dang cute! He has a friend for life in that pupdog, doesn't he?
    I adore salmon patties and love getting new ideas and tips on how to make them.
    Thanks bunches, and enjoy Matthew. I'm awaiting our new grandson who will arrive in early May.
    Oh boy, oh boy!

  5. I ate salmon from the can, like you said, as a child, at my grandma's home. I remember the salmon cakes but no corn just crackers and egg. That baby boy is so teeny tiny and so precious. Enjoy him now as they grow up too soon.

  6. He's a beautiful little guy! Adorable shot, looking at his daddy :) Cute pup!
    The salmon looks delicious. Lucky kid, he'll be getting fed so well by his grandma when he gets big!

  7. Pam, I know that you're really enjoying your grandson... We'll be spending a few days with our grandsons in the near future, something we always look forward to! Great looking salmon patties! I'm thinking that they'll go well with a couple of fried eggs and a touch of Tabasco... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  9. Lyndsey, thanks so much and yes, we are having the time of our lives. It's just great being grandparents! Hope you try the salmon! The corn gives it some crunch.

    Betty Ray, thank you! I also love the expression on his face looking at daddy.

    Donnie, thank you! I don't think I could go that long without having salmon.

    Corgidogmama, thanks! Matthew absolutely has a friend for life with Coco. She is a great doggie! I know you're really looking forward to your grandson and bet Emmy can hardly wait!

    Dodie, glad you like the salmon like that also. Matthew is tiny but growing fast. We're in love!

    Carol, thank you! I love this pic of them all. Yes, I can't wait to cook for him and let him help bake cookies.

    David, you're right, we are! Have a fabulous visit with your grandsons; I'm sure you will! Ummmm! Never thought about having fried eggs with the salmon. That works for me! And Tabasco too! Take care...

  11. Yes, I like salmon out of the can. I'm going to do an analysis of canned tuna versus salmon versus, yes, Spam. I think the results will be surprising.

  12. Yum, love salmon patties. And your grandson is truly beautiful.

  13. I love babies and dogs. You can see the devotion in Coco's eyes. It will be fun to watch this team as Matthew grows. Since we always seem to have a supply of fresh salmon, and we eat it a lot, I have not bought canned salmon in a long time, but I do love it...also, right out of the can!! Very nice recipe.

  14. It's hard to concentrate on your recipe (although it looks and sounds delicious) when there is a photo of that adorable baby to see. I love how the pup is eyeing him. They'll be good friends.

    Have a great weekend. Hope you have lots of cuddle time.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  15. What a sweetheart Mathew is! A real doll. I love Wheatens, our dear friends had one that we would take care of every time they went out of town. Sadly, he passed away at the ripe old age of 17 last fall.

    I love salmon patties too and these look great!

  16. Adorable! Baby,daddy and dog! The salmon patties look good also.

  17. Matthew is so adorable! I am surprised you are finding time to cook because I am sure all you want to do is hold and kiss him! My mom also made her salmon patties with eggs, crackers, and onion. I think she would love your recipe; I know I will!

    Have a great weekend!

  20. We had a dog who behaved the same way when our first child game along - immediately adopted her, slept under the crib and was always nearby. The salmon patties look delicious.

  22. Stephen, can't wait to see the results of this. It might be scary!

    muppy, thanks so much!

    Susan, thank you! Coco is infatuated for sure. Lucky you with all the fresh salmon. You sure can't go wrong with that!

    Bonnie, thank you! I agree, I'd rather look at a baby any day. Matthew and Coco are pals for life. I will be cuddling him soon and can hardly wait. Have a great weekend!

    Susan, thanks, we think he is also. Wheatens, these are the first ones I've been around and they are great dogs; very friendly, cute and lovable!

    Mimi, thank you! They're a great team! Have a good weekend!

    Melinda, thanks!

    Linda, you are so right! I'd love to hold and kiss him all the time. Hope you and your mom try the salmon. It's tasty. Have a great weekend!

    Cathy, thanks! Coco watches over him diligently. If he cries, both dogs are there instantly. Glad you like the salmon.

    Alessandra, thanks! I am!!!

    Big Dude, I know exactly what you mean about your dog as we had a dachshund pup before Matt was born and he did not let Matt out of his sight and watched like a hawk if someone outside the family picked him up.

    bellini valli, thank you; we think the same. Hope you enjoy the salmon and have a good weekend!

  39. What a sweet baby. I love the tale of his "sitter". You salmon sounds wonderful, but it is very hard to post anything that will upstage a newborn :-). I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary.

  43. I love salmon patties! I wish I could get the old standard canned sock-eye(I think that's it) but not here. What I get is okay for salmon patties, though, LOL I like tuna patties, too!

  46. Matthew is ADORABLE. Can I have a cuddle ????

    I can't believe how big my little monkey is getting. Time flies so fast and they get so big so quick.

    It's impossible to cuddle them too much at that size.

    Loads of love to all xx
