    This recipe yields about 6 medium-sized patties, ideal for serving 2-3 people. It’s a perfect portion for a small family dinner or a couple enjoying a cozy meal.


      1 (14 3/4 ounce) can salmon

      1/4 cup finely chopped onion

      1/4 cup cornmeal

      1/4 cup flour

      1 egg

      3 tablespoons mayonnaise

      1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

      Directions & How to Prepare

        Begin by draining the canned salmon and flaking it into a medium-sized bowl. This ensures that your patties will have a consistent texture without being too moist.


        Add the finely chopped onion to the salmon. The onion should be small enough to blend seamlessly into the mixture, adding a subtle crunch and flavor.

        Incorporate the cornmeal and flour into the salmon mixture. These ingredients will help bind the patties together, providing the perfect crispiness once cooked.

        Crack an egg into the bowl and add the mayonnaise along with the garlic powder. The egg and mayonnaise will act as binding agents, while the garlic powder adds a hint of savory flavor.

        Mix all the ingredients until they form a cohesive batter. It’s essential that the mixture isn’t too wet or dry; it should hold together well when formed into patties.

        Preheat a large skillet over medium heat and lightly coat it with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

        Form the salmon mixture into small patties, roughly the size of a palm, and place them in the skillet.

        Cook the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side. They should be golden brown and firm to the touch, indicating they’re cooked through.
