Salmon patties are a refreshing change of pace to the normal burger for dinner. They are extremely tasty and full of flavor.
How to Store Salmon Patties to Preserve its Juiciness?
The best way to store your salmon patties would be in an airtight glass container if they have already been cooked. Then place them in your fridge to be eaten within 2-3 days for best reheating results.
If you have yet to cook the salmon cakes, you will want to wrap each patty individually with plastic wrap and then store them in an airtight container in the fridge. This will prevent them from drying out while you are waiting to cook them.
You can also store this recipe for salmon patties in the freezer. This time again you would want to wrap each patty individually and then store them in an airtight container so they will not get freezer burn.
Best Practices for Reheat this Salmon Patties Recipe
To reheat this amazing salmon patties recipe, there are a few ways you can do it. Take a look below to try one way, or try them all!
- In the Oven
You can use the oven. For this you will want to preheat your oven to 375 degrees and bake the patties for 15-20 minutes, making sure to flip the patties half of the way through. This will allow each side to crisp up a little bit more.
- On the Stovetop
You can fry them again on the stovetop in a skillet with some more of the Crisco and heat the pattie for 7-10 minutes or until it is heated all the way through, making sure to flip it again half the way through cooking. Reheating time will depend on the thickness of the patties.
- In the Air Fryer
For a third and newer option, you can also use an air fryer. For how to make salmon patty in the air fryer you will want to place the frozen salmon patty on the bottom of the air fryer basket after it has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Then put the basket in the air fryer, and turn it on for 12-14 minutes at 400 degrees.

What Kind of Salmon to Use for Salmon Patties
For this salmon patties recipe, you will be using canned salmon to make the patties. The most important thing to know is to NOT get the canned salmon with skin.
If you happened to choose the canned salmon with skin, while you might be getting a slightly higher omega-3 consumption, you will not get the consistency you will need to make the perfect salmon patty.
Making sure to have boneless and skinless canned salmon will allow your patties to form properly and hold together tight.
Also, if you have the choice between either salmon in oil or water, choosing the salmon in water will cut down on the added unsaturated fats that you are consuming. For that reason, I normally will choose salmon canned in water or oil. However, they won’t make too much of a difference in the cooking process.

I was so excited to find this recipe! I had this recipe from my mom but since our move I couldn’t find it and my mom has been gone for several years. It was delicious!
Would this work to double and bake in a loaf pan for Salmon Loaf also? Can’t wait to make it. We make a similar one so always trying new. Thanks
I think this would work, you may need to adjust the cooking time a bit.
I have used this recipe for over 40 years. Ever since I found it on the old Crisco can. Make it at least twice a month
Could you please modify this recipe to state what size can of salmon? — Thank you.
