Large Salmon Patties

Sharing is caring!

This is a clone of the large salmon patties served at my favorite restaurants. I always ask them to put cheese sauce on mine.


  • 2 (14.75 ounce) cans salmon, drained and bones removed
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (Optional)
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt (Optional)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder (Optional)
  • 2 tablespoons shortening (such as Crisco®)


Mix salmon, bread crumbs, onion, eggs, flour, dill, basil, garlic salt, and onion powder together in a bowl; form into 5 large patties.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Melt shortening in a large frying pan over medium-high heat; fry patties until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer patties to a baking dish.

Bake in the preheated oven until patties are cooked through, about 20 more minutes.
