How to make it

  • It’s best to make the creamed peas first, so it’s ready to pour over the salmon patties when they are done – the patties take very little time to fry up.
  • For the creamed peas, melt the butter in a small pan and stir in the flour and seasonings.
  • Gradually stir in the half-and-half, using a whisk to help prevent lumps.
  • Heat, whisking often, until sauce begins to thicken.
  • Add drained peas and gently stir with a spoon (a whisk may break up the peas too much).
  • Stir often as it continues to heat and thicken.
  • To prepare the salmon patties, break up the salmon in a shallow bowl and mix with remaining patty ingredients.
  • Sprinkle a piece of waxed paper generously with some flour.
  • Shape salmon into 3 or 4 patties, and place them in the flour.
  • Carefully flip the patties over so both sides are coated with the flour.
  • Preheat skillet until hot (but not hot enough to burn the butter when added) and add butter to pan – as soon as it’s melted, place the salmon patties into the hot, melted butter.
  • Fry until golden on bottom, then carefully flip and continue to fry until brown on bottom.
  • Serve immediately with creamed peas poured over each patty.

    I just found this recipe and brought back instant memories! The same dinosaurs were roaming parts of Texas when I was a kid! lol!
    Yes, creamed peas smothering the patties. And yes back then we used canned or fresh peas and now for conveience I use frozen petite peas. Love this recipe - it is a little different from mine - but out with the old and in with the new - I'm trying yours!

    Just looking at the pics. brings back memories of my Mom, cooking up a batch of salman patties for all of us, there were eight of us running around. I was to young to remember how she made them, and even through trial and error, I just can't seem to get it right. I'm anxcious to try this recipe. The creamed peas will be just the right touch.

    Hey Krum! I made this recipe for dinner tonight...only difference is I used salmon I had purchased at Costco and frozen. I defrosted and poached the salmon, then flaked it and followed your recipe right down to the canned Le Seuer peas! It really turned out great and hubby was very happy! I give you a 5 on this! More later this week...take care!

    Hello Krum, don't know how I missed this when you posted! Anyway, it's more than wonderful! So, so comforting! This is the same recipe that my mother used, then passed on to me. Always have to have creamed peas, (your way, too) but always have them on the side. I love the "smothered" part. I will do this the next time. Of course, next to my mashed potatoes! :)

    Krum, I have to confess I have never bought a can of salmon. I remember my mother buying it and picking thru bones and bits of skin and it just never appealed to me! I do have fresh salmon in the freezer (does that make sense??) and I bet I could use that in place of the canned, right? This looks delicious, particularly with the creamed peas! A good way to eat fish!

    Krum, This is just wonderful. I love salmon patties and usually have peas on the side. I didn't think to combine them. Your pics are great. I have made creamed pea over toast but this is a yummy twist. I'm saving and printing this. You have a ^5 for sure sweetie. :)
