  • 1 can (14.75 ounces) of salmon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of cornmeal OR 5-10 saltine crackers (or 1 tablespoon of flour if preferred)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped OR onion powder, to taste
  • Bald Buck Seasoning (Bold Taste Flavor)
  • Oil for frying


  1. Drain the salmon and transfer it to a mixing bowl. Remove any large bones if desired. Break the salmon into chunks using a fork.
  2. Add eggs, chopped onion (or onion powder), and Bald Buck Seasoning to the bowl with the salmon.
  3. For a fried texture:
    • If using cornmeal and flour: Gradually add the cornmeal and flour mixture into the bowl while mixing until you achieve a consistency suitable for shaping patties.
    • For traditional patties: Instead of cornmeal and flour, use crushed saltine crackers. Mix until you attain a consistency that allows you to form patties.
  4. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, reduce the heat to medium.
  5. Take portions of the patty mixture, shape them into patties by rolling between your palms, and flatten to your desired thickness.
  6. Place the patties in the pan and fry each side until they turn golden brown, which typically takes 5-10 minutes in total.
  7. Once done, remove the patties from the pan and place them on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
