Speedy Salmon Patties

I combine seven easy ingredients for this salmon patty recipe. When I was a girl growing up on the farm, my mom often fixed these when we were late in the field. These salmon cakes are also tasty with chopped green peppers added to the mixture. —Bonnie Evans, Cameron, North Carolina

Test Kitchen Tips
  • You can freeze salmon and other oily types of fish, such as whitefish, mackerel and lake trout, for up to 3 months. Wrap fish in freezer paper, freezer bags or heavy-duty foil before freezing.
  • Worcestershire sauce was originally considered a mistake. In 1835, an English lord commissioned two chemists to duplicate a sauce he had tried in India. The pungent batch was disappointing and wound up in their cellar. When the pair stumbled upon the aged concoction 2 years later, they were pleasantly surprised by its unique taste.
