I've made salmon patties for years. Just take your flaked meat,(enough for four patties), add one beaten egg, some bread crumbs (not too many), salt pepper and chopped green onions. Then fry them until they brown up.

Yep and make fish patties. I've had a few in my younger days. There was an older lady when I grew up that we would give fish to. She told us to keep all the bluegill we could catch and she would take them. She would grind up everything once scaled beheaded and gutted. On the bigger ones she cut off tail and fins. Put on sliced bread or just eat them out of the pan.


Thanks. I'll have to try this next time I fish with the kids.

We always cut the fins off, but ate bushels of bluegills that way.
Man that tail is a delicacy, a heavenly tater chip...
I fillet most fish now for ease. I can fillet one faster than scaling and gutting, but always eat a couple batches whole, mainly just for the tail
