I love salmon patties and was thinking about using some of my freezer stock for salmon patties. Can salmon, besides being canned has bones and skin mixed in it....... bad stuff. It is easy enough to remove the pin bones and skin from a fillet. But it brings up some questions,

Has any ever used a meat grinder on salmon? If I got the fillet almost frozen and put it through a larger plate, larger holes it might work? Right? Lol, has anyone ever tried grinding salmon?

my wife asked me how many pin bones a salmon has so I googled it the only answer if found was 29 pin bones, which did not make sense because of the odd number of bones, is that 29 a side?

I like the added calcium. Need it as I grow older.

Salmon patties for burgers are excellent. I would remove the bones but I'm guessing ground bones couldn't hurt too much.

I don't think there are 29 per side. That seems like more than I've pulled. I always thought there were about 15 per side so that would make sense.
