Mama would pick out the bones and hand them to us as treats. We loved them.

    Well, I  love seafood and I declare that one can make wonderful  salmon patties and  croquettes  out of  canned  salmon.  Our  family  loves them..........guess you need  just the right recipe!

      I really don't want to turn many of my Roadfood friends into screaming raging tyrants over a can of Salmon... So I will just say ,  To Each His/Her Own (in reference to that bone-filled catfood-in-a-can).
      I will admit that I learned to love the deep-fried Clam Cakes and Fishcakes that a little fry-shop on the square in Haverhill, MASS. sold late into the night. I was working nights at the Post Office sorting Parcel Post, and, as the junior (read college kid) on that night crew, I made the coffee and snack runs at the break-time for our crew.  The Clam Cakes sold for $.40 each, so I could usually only get one as my lunch ration...but the fishcakes were just a Dime, so getting 4 of them for the price of one Clamcake was a real bargain. I would carry the tray with 15 or 20 cakes and the same number of sealed foam coffee cups across the square each night...I grew to love the fishcakes during that time.
       
      I quit cooking for HoJo's when I got the appointment as a 'sub-clerk' for the P O. That was the only time, other than buying a couple of houses along the way, that I ever used the Veteran's preference points to help land the job. That was the best part-time work I did during those 'working my way thru college' years.  Fond memories, yeah, I do like Fishcakes, the crunchier the better !

        Al, are those Codfish cakes? I think I had a topic about them some time ago, loved them as a kid, way better than Fish Sticks!

          Ode to Coddies...

          "For many Baltimoreans whose childhoods hark back to

          the 1960s and earlier, for example, the era in which they

          grew up is entwined with the memory of a deep-fried fish

          treat served up on a mustard-slathered cracker."
