This is a recipe for my Grandmother’s famous salmon cakes. It is a family recipe that has been passed down through generations. Serve with macaroni and cheese or any other type of side dish.
There’s something so wonderful about a simple recipe like this that was made a lot before the fancy food movement started. I remember my mother making this recipe when I was young. There’s nothing wrong with using canned salmon and saltine crackers; in fact, if you are used to eating restaurant fare such as poached sea bass with grape salsa, this recipe will come as a pleasant surprise. This is true old-fashioned comfort food.
We all know how important fish is for the health! I know I’m presenting a fried recipe, but still, it’s good! This is my old fashioned salmon patties recipe, they’re superbe!
Just as those stories weren’t what I was pining for as a young girl, my Mama also made a meal that was one of my Daddy’s favorite and was far from my own. I could smell it cooking as I walked down the steps and into our kitchen and would try to think quickly of some reason why I should eat any other supper but the one she had prepared.
