Growing up, I watched my mom make these salmon patties. These salmon patties have been a big part of my childhood. I always asked my mom to make these for me, and I even have some packed for lunch. These tasty salmon patties are made with cans of skinless and boneless wild salmon, old bay seasoning, eggs, mayonnaise, panko, green peppers, and fresh chives. Mix them and shape them into big patties. This recipe is a no-fuss, easy, and whip up fast!
