This is a recipe that I have been making for most of my adult life! It was taught to me by my mother and, therefore, not a written recipe. But, I will do my best!!
2 cans of salmon (14-16 oz. each)
1 sleeve of saltine crackers, crushed
2 T. lemon juice
*Cream of Mushroom Soup w/Milk
After opening each can of salmon - drain the juice and discard the bones. Mash the salmon in a large bowl. Add the eggs and lemon juice and mix. Add the crackers until you have the desired consistency you would like. (When I do 2 cans of salmon - it works to about 1 sleeve of crackers or 1/4 of a box) I crush the crackers in my blender a small portion at a time and adding each portion to the salmon mixture and stirring it.
I heat a little oil in a large skillet. Then, I like to keep my hands moist while forming the patties - so I run some water in the sink and in between forming each patty I run water over my hands. Form the salmon patties to your desired size and place them in the 'warm to hot' oil. Fry them til done.
* I always serve these with Cream of Mushroom soup that I mix with just a half can of milk. I like a little thicker consistency.

I always make sure each side is cooked a little again. Love these with mashed potatoes and the cream of mushroom soup/gravy over both the patties and the potatoes.
