1 (15-ounce) can salmon (bones removed)

2 green bell peppers, finely diced

1 yellow onion, finely diced

Salt and pepper

3 cups yellow cornmeal

1 cup all-purpose flour

Vegetable oil, for frying

Ketchup, for serving, optional

Hot sauce, for serving, optional


  1. Combine salmon, bell peppers, and onion in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Shape by hand into patties, as you would a hamburger. In a separate bowl, combine cornmeal and flour. Roll salmon patties in the cornmeal mixture.
  2. Heat about 1-inch of oil in a large, heavy skillet to 340 degrees F. Carefully place patties, in batches as necessary, in the hot oil and fry for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain patties on paper towels. Serve with ketchup and/or hot sauce, if desired.
