  1. I’m not sure I can do it, Faith. I’ve had this thing about canned salmon ever since I was pregnant with my son. Just the idea of it kind of makes me want to gag. So weird, because I loved canned salmon before! Maybe I should just suck it up and give it a try. My kids love salmon in other forms, so they’d probably be all over these…

    • I can’t stand any other tinned fish-tuna, sardines, anchovies-eating any of these would be like a fear factor challenge to me but the salmon burgers were really good. It does kind of smell like cat food though, whoops I probably just turned you off the idea for good! 😉

  2. I have never been a fan of salmon. Shame on me… I know. It’s so good for you, assuming we buy it responsibly. I haven’t given it a try in a couple of years – I probably should give it a go again. But canned salmon? I don’t know… It does look good, though.
    Maybe I will try this with my canned tuna! ha,ha.

      • 15oz can salmon, not drained, with bones! Mash it up. Mix in 11oz corn, 1/2 cup finely chopped onion, 1/2 cup finely chopped red pepper, 2 large eggs, one cup bread crumbs. Cooking spray in a pan and form them and cook them. Sooo easy and my whole family loves them!

  3. I’ve never been able to eat canned salmon. Love it fresh or frozen though. I’ll try your suggestion to get skinless/boneless. It might make a difference. I’d love to be able to keep some in the pantry for recipes like your patties. They sound delicious.

    I walked to the Farmer’s Market this weekend and picked up all kinds of goodies. I’m trying new (to me) veggies. This trip I picked up a couple of bunches of mustard greens. I made a salad from a recipe I found in Natural Health. The first couple of bites the taste was iffy but by the end I was thoroughly enjoying it. Thanks for helping me to try new things.

  4. How funny — as I read your post, I thought, “I must be the only person in the world who dislikes salmon.” Glad to see I’m not alone.

    These do look amazing, though…and I suppose I like it if someone else prepares it for me,,,maybe I’ll try to get my husband to make these!

    Thanks for the super-recipe, Faith!

  5. I love salmon burgers…I usually use my kefir instead of eggs and it adds great flavor too. That mixture is also really good inside of grape leaves (just leave out the bread crumbs).

    I made the same mistake with the bones one time. I gagged, too, and my husband had to handle the meal prep that night!

    My mom used to make these for me! I forgot how much i loved them. These will be on the menu very soon in my house:). I’m with you on other canned fishes. I hate canned tuna. Blah!!

    I love canned salmon, but don’t like regular salmon and much prefer canned salmon to canned tuna. I actually don’t mind the bones (I need the calcium!), but I do try and pull out most of the skin. I love to make my salmon patties with black beans. Just another delicious nutrient!

  9. Omg… I had to laugh. My first attempt at this ended similarly. I was excited to make my (at the time) new hubby salmon cakes… I opened up the can, and got the surprise of my life!!
    Now I just stick to the pouched up salmon, or smoked fillets from my butcher. YUMMMMMM!
