These easy salmon patties made with canned salmon, saltine crackers, onion, green pepper and seasonings are a quick and budget-friendly dinner!



  • 1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon, drained
  • 15 saltine crackers, crushed (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 21/2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Place salmon in a large bowl and pick out any bones and discard. Flake salmon with a fork.
  2. Add crushed crackers, egg, garlic, lemon juice, onion, green pepper, Old Bay Seasoning, salt and pepper and mix ingredients with your hands or a large spoon. Form into patties (I used 1/2 cup of salmon mixture for each patty).
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add patties and cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side. Place on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
