How to cook pink salmon? Double "Q" can brand.?

What is the easiest way to cook canned pink salmon? Not looking for a fancy feast. I just have a can in my cabinet and want some of the salmon nutrients, you might say. Can you just prepare with the ingredients in the can? Do you add butter, grease, salt or any other everyday ingredient?

I love this....

Salmon Patties:

Take salmon out ...pick out all little can leave them in. but I pick them out..

Add one whole egg.

Crumble up and add a couple of pieces of bread that has been out for a little while to let it dry out...

Some people also use like crumbled up crackers

Any way mix this stuff up good ...then pat them our like hamburger or sausage patties ...

Fry them in grease ,,virgin olive oil, butter whatever you like......Fry them till the are a golden brown on both sides.

mmmmmm,,,,, try it .....easy cheap and good.

I like to eat mine with some mashed potatoes and cole slaw...... Yup I am a southern boy.

If you try it let me know how you liked it.

There are quite a few things you can do with salmon, it really all depends on how you want to cook it, Below are a few ideas


1 can salmon, boned
1 1/2 c. rolled crackers, saltines
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1 c. boiling water

Mix well and put in casserole: salmon, 1 cup crackers, eggs, salt and pepper. Mix 1/2 cup crackers with butter and spread over top. Pour over all water and bake at 350 degrees until brown.


1 (15 1/2 oz.) can salmon
2 c. water
1 c. tomato juice
1/2 c. diced onion
1 c. cubed raw potatoes
1 tsp. celery salt
4 tbsp. butter
4 tbsp. flour
3 c. milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Clean salmon of bones. Combine salmon, water, tomato juice, onion, potatoes and celery salt in large kettle. Cover and simmer slowly for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, in another pan, make cream sauce: Melt butter over low heat and stir in flour. Add milk gradually and stir over low heat until thickened. Add salt, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. When cream cheese is thick and smooth, add to salmon mixture. Stir well and serve hot.

Salmon patties are a great old favorite, I would suggest using a white or cheese sauce over these.


16 ounces pink salmon, canned
1 egg
1/3 cup onion, minced
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil, for frying

Drain salmon. Set aside 2 Tablespoons juice in mixing bowl. Mix together salmon, egg, and onions until sticky. Stir in flour. Add baking powder to juice, then stir into salmon mixture. Form into small patties. Fry until golden brown (about 5 minutes).
