Salmon Patties Recipe
“This heart-healthy salmon patties recipe does double duty. It’s nutritious and delicious.”
Salmon is high in Omega 3 fatty acids and research have indicated that Omega 3 fatty acids may help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Be sure to check out the Food For Thought section at the end of this recipe to learn about an easy trick to make the patties stay together while cooking. Food for Thought also explains our suggestion about having the patties prepped about an hour before cooking time. We also share how we make the healthy bread crumbs used in this recipe.
Ingredients preparation for salmon patties recipe:
- Pull salmon apart and remove all bones and then set salmon aside. See Food For Thought for more details on this step.
- Combine all dry ingredients together, black pepper Mrs. Dash, dry bread crumbs, green onions, red pepper, green pepper and set aside.
- Whisk together fresh lime juice, minced ginger, Sriracha Hot sauce, egg, and garlic, and then set this liquid mixture aside.
- In a large mixing bowl thoroughly combine salmon with the dry ingredients.
- Blend the liquid mixture with the salmon. To make sure this mixture is blended well I use my hands! This reminds me of the way my mother made meatloaf.
- After the salmon mixture is all blended together, form 6 patties from the mixture. Place the 6 patties on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper and set in the freezer. See Food For Thought.
- Put the salmon patties into the freezer for about 1 hour before you plan to cook the salmon.
- After the patties have been in the freezer for about an hour prep a frying pan on medium heat with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil and cook salmon patties. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or till golden brown. Only turn the patties once when cooking. If you do not need to cook all 6 salmon patties, just freeze them for future use.
Serving Suggestions for salmon patties
We like to serve these salmon patties with our Spicy Corn Salsa. And serve the salsa cold and it’s a good pairing – something hot and something nice and cold.
We also like to serve our Greek Yogurt, Sriracha, and Balsamic Vinegar Sauce as a topping for our Salmon Patties.
Food For Thought
- We make our own bread crumbs by toasting 3 or 4 slices of Aunt Millie’s 12-grain bread. Then cut into pieces and grind in a blender into crumbs.
- If the crumbs are not dry enough just place the crumbs on a cookie sheet and let them sit in a low-temperature oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
- The reason we prepare our crumbs this way is to take advantage of the yummy flavor, they’re healthy, they have fiber, and they contain a lot less sodium than pre-made bread crumbs.
Removing the bones:
Take the salmon from the can, and pull it apart with a fork. Remove the line of bones and check carefully to see if there are any additional bones to remove.
Preventing the patties from falling apart when cooking:
We found that freezing the salmon patties for an hour before we cook them helps keep the patties together during the cooking process and they cook more evenly in the pan.
