Salmon Burgers

I have a can of salmon that I want to use to make Salmon Burgers. I googled and found this recipe that appeals to me, because it doesn't require any unusual ingredients. I just want basic salmon burgers. Those of you in the know about them, what do you think of this recipe? Would you do anything to tweak it? Should I add some Old Bay Seasoning?

That sounds good.

When we were kids salmon cakes (mackerel ) were an emergency shelf meal in the winter or on the day before payday!

You can use any recipe for crab or codfish cakes and just substitute the salmon for the crab. I grew up with a potato based version similar to this one.

That recipe looks good too, Aunt Bea and I think DH would like the creamed peas. I have saved it to my recipe file. I think I have some potato flakes on hand. Sometimes I use them for thickening. Baking them in the muffin cups is a good idea too, although I might want to stick with patties if we decide to eat them on a bun.

It sounds like a good recipe. When I make salmon cakes, I usually use plain bread crumbs over panko. Sometimes, I will skip the bread crumbs and add a spoon of flour with a teaspoon of baking soda. I also add onion powder instead of onion because I find the onion bits a bit too much for me in salmon cakes.

Aunt Bea, my mother made them with creamed peas too. Loved them on winter nights.

Back in the olden days when I was married, my ex made salmon loaf with canned salmon. She loved it. I ate it.

My salmon burgers turned out good. We ate a late lunch/early dinner because DH is leaving to go to a car cruise. I used the recipe I found on the internet and the only thing I did different was when I chopped up half an onion, it looked like too much onion so I only used half of what I chopped. The mixture was very wet and sticky. I formed the burgers, put them on wax paper in the refrigerator for 1 hour. They held together and browned up very nicely. DH came in while I was cooking them and said "I want mine burned." He like everything well done. So he ate them and liked them and said I could make them again. Success! A new meal to cook! I really loved the dill mayo.

In Andy's defense, I found a recipe online for Salmon Loaf. It doesn't look appetizing at all, and doesn't look anything like my salmon burgers. For one thing, it calls for 2 cups of bread crumbs, while my recipe only had 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs with the same amount of salmon. Sounds like this salmon loaf would taste more like stuffing.
