  • 20 ounces canned salmon boneless and skinless
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 64 whole Saltine crackers (about 2 sleeves)
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or salted butter


  • Drain and rinse the salmon. Then add it to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the eggs and lemon juice to the salmon, and give it a good stir.
  • Crush the Saltine crackers in a plastic baggie, using a rolling pin. 
  • Add the crackers to your salmon mixture.
  • Next, mix in the Miracle Whip.
  • Then add the salt, pepper, chives, and fresh parsley. Mix everything together well.
  • Add a dash of olive oil or a couple tablespoons of butter to a skillet and begin to warm.
  • Grab about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the mixture and begin forming a patty. Repeat and continue until all of the mixture has been formed into patties.
  • Add the patties to your skillet (or griddle) and fry each side on low to medium heat until the patties have turned a golden brown color and have a crispy texture.
  • When they are cooked through, remove them from the skillet, allow to drain, and serve while warm. 
  • They pair deliciously well with this homemade tzatziki sauce.


You can use canned salmon or fresh salmon, totally up to you.
You can also substitute dried chives or parsley for fresh.
If you have leftovers, these salmon patties are just as good the next day.
