TIPS to Make THE BEST Southern Salmon Patties

  1. When it comes to making southern fried salmon patties, there are a few tips that will help you create a delicious and satisfying meal. Here are some of our favorites:
  2. Make sure that your salmon is fresh. Frozen salmon can work, but it won’t have the same flavor or texture as fresh salmon.
  3. Be careful not to overmix the salmon mixture. This can make the patties tough and dense.
  4. Use a nonstick skillet to cook the patties. This will help them stay together and prevent them from sticking to the pan.
  5. Cook the patties over medium-high heat so that they can get a nice crispy crust on the outside without overcooking the salmon inside.
  6. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or condiment. Some of our favorites include tartar sauce, honey mustard, or sriracha sauce.

What To Serve With Salmon Patties

Salmon patties are a delicious and healthy meal that the whole family can enjoy. But what should you serve with them? Here are a few ideas:

  • Mashed potatoes: This classic side dish pairs well with salmon patties.
  • Rice: Serve your salmon patties over a bed of steamed rice for a filling meal.
  • Vegetables: Try serving your salmon patties with a side of fresh vegetables, like broccoli or green beans.
  • Salad: A simple salad is a perfect accompaniment to salmon patties.

With so many options to choose from, you can easily find a side dish that everyone in your family will love.

What can be used as a substitute for eggs in salmon patties?

One option for a substitute for eggs in salmon patties is mayonnaise. Mayo helps to hold the patties together and gives them the richness that eggs would provide. Another option is to use an egg replacer, such as an egg replacer powder or a commercial vegan egg product.

These substitutes help to bind the ingredients together without using eggs.
