FISH of all kinds are meal-time mainstays for us in Nova Scotia, so my search for new and tasty ways to prepare fish never stops. These lighter-than-air salmon patties are a favorite in my family and are especially good served with green beans and a tossed salad. -Beverly Willis, Bridgetown, Nova Scotia


  • 1 cup mashed potatoes (with added milk and butter)
  • 1 can (6 ounces) salmon, drained, bones and skin removed
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 saltine crackers, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Lemon wedges, optional


  1. In a small bowl, combine the potatoes, salmon, onion, cracker crumbs, parsley, salt, pepper and egg yolk; mix well. Beat egg white until stiff peaks form; fold into salmon mixture.
  2. Shape into six patties. Heat oil in a large skillet; fry the patties over medium heat for 3-4 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Garnish with lemon if desired.
