Fish From a Can??

Has anyone ever tried fish from a can?? This will be the first time in my life. . . .

Not a fan of Tuna in a can, But for lunch today, I just really wanted a crab cake. Um, so how did we get here??

Well – we are here, because I’m currently not spending my stay-cation in Ocean City, Maryland and have Blue Crab on demand. So I looked for the next best thing at the grocery store today…….Salmon in a can?? Bumble Bee Skinless & Boneless Pink Salmon – for the win??.

Can’t be that bad, right??

So I picked up a couple cans of them and ran with the idea……
So below is my take on a ‘salmon cake’ or ‘salmon burger’…..

It wasn’t bad, no ‘fish’ smell. I’ll keep this recipe in my back pocket……


  • 12–14 ounces cooked salmon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh
  • a squeeze of lemon juice
  • olive oil for pan-frying


Flake the salmon apart. Mix all ingredients together and form into 4 large patties. Heat olive oil over medium heat, ideally in a nonstick skillet. Fry the burgers for a few minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy. Place on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with salt. Serve Hot, I opted for coleslaw as a side (which I just picked up from the grocery store).

Enjoy – See you in the Kitchen!
