Slow Cooker Salmon Patties

By John Crowley

There aren't a lot of recipes that include seafood in the slow cooker. These salmon patties are a good source of Omega 3s and can be eaten year-round since they're made using canned salmon.

Tried these last night. Fried them instead of in the slow cooker. We really didn't care for the texture, & they were very bland. Won't have them again.

I'll give it a try, but do think it's too much cracker crumbs & not enough salmon, especially with the corn flake coating. Seems like the salmon flavor would be lost in all the filler & coating.

That does seem like an awfully small amount of salmon:cracker ratio!According to Alaska salmon comes in 3-3/4 oz., 64 oz., 7-1/2 oz., 6-1/2 oz.*, 14-3/4 oz. Skinless and boneless Alaska Salmon is available in 6 1/2 oz. cans only.

I might try the recipe as it sounds good. I would definitely use the large 14.75 oz can and not depend on fillers as much. I want the salmon taste not cracker. I have used cracker before and even less than in the recipe is too much. I also add a few drops of fish sauce (if you have it) to accentuate the fish flavor…not too much though!! I think the spicing sounds good. And they might be different in a slow cooker or my GE Roaster instead of frying.

Can anyone confirm that the amount of salmon is correct? 2.75 oz seems very small to me.

I really thought you had to FRY salmon patties for them to taste good. Must give this a try.
