Crispy crunchy salmon patties, or salmon cakes, are made with just three ingredients plus a little oil for the pan. Everyone loves them!
Add enough oil to cover the bottom of a large nonstick skillet to a depth of 1/4 inch. Preheat the pan with the oil on medium heat while you prepare the salmon.
Combine the salmon, the eggs, and 1/2 cup of Italian breadcrumbs. Stir thoroughly until the mixture is well combined. Pour the 1/2 cup of remaining breadcrumbs on a plate.
Form the mixture into round patties about the size of the center of your palm. Place the formed patty on the breadcrumbs on the plate; pat gently to make the breadcrumbs stick, then flip and pat the other side into the breadcrumbs.
Slip each patty gently into the pan. Fry on one side for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cooked side is golden brown. Flip the patty and fry the other side the same way.
When both sides are golden brown, remove to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Serve warm.
