Salmon or Tuna Patties for the Freezer
I actually made these last month and did not have time to post this. I love these things!! They are great to have in the freezer and easy to make.
I used a different recipe than the one I have on my website. I like that recipe, but if you know me I like to play around with recipes and try new things. Here is the recipe I used…
Salmon or Tuna Patties (for the freezer)
3 – 6oz cans of salmon or tuna, drained
¼ onion, chopped small
1 celery stalk, chopped small
¼ cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
1 T olive oil
approx. 1/2 cup flour
In a large bowl combine salmon or tuna, onion and celery. Mix in mayonnaise, egg, and a little salt and pepper. Add olive oil and then add flour until the mixture sticks together.
Using a ¼ cup measuring cup measure out a scoop and form a patty.
For Freezing: Lay patties on a tray and flash freeze. When they are frozen put them in zip type bags.
Cooking Instructions: Heat a frying pan to medium high heat. Add a thin coating of olive oil. Cook frozen patty (or patties, depending on how many you need) for 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side for 3 to 5 minutes. Try and not do a lot of flipping over and over with them as they will begin to fall apart. If you only flip once they will be fine.

Combine all ingredients adding enough flour for the mixture to hold together..
Using a ¼ cup measuring cup scoop salmon or tuna mixture and form into patties. Lay on a tray. I lined my tray with parchment paper to make it easier to remove them when they were frozen. Put tray in freezer and let them freeze…
When they are frozen remove them and store in zip lock bags…
