Recipe Notes

  • If you don't have crackers, you would use fresh breadcrumbs.
  • Fresh is best, so squeeze your own lemon juice if you can. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the salmon, mayonnaise, lemon juice, egg, green onions, Worcestershire sauce and Old Bay in a mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add about half of the crushed cracker crumbs. Stir to combine. Form the mixture into patties. 
  2. Put the remaining cracker crumbs onto a plate. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a skillet over medium heat. 
  3. Dredge the salmon patties in the crushed crumbs and place in the hot oil . Fry until golden brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel.
