This recipe for salmon patties is made with fresh, not canned, salmon, giving them an excellent flavor. The patties can be pan-fried or, for a lower-calorie dish, browned on the stovetop and then finished in the oven. As a child, salmon patties were a popular Friday meal in my house. This treatment of using fresh salmon makes it all grown up and perfect as an appetizer or main dish.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4 servings Salmon Patties

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless salmon fillet
  • 1/4 cup dry white breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise or Creamy Garlic Dressing
  • 1/4 cup finely grated onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • All-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • Dry white breadcrumbs or panko crumbs
  • Oil for frying

Preparation:

  1. Remove any skin and pin bones from salmon. Chop into 1/4-inch pieces. In a medium bowl, mix salmon with 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, mayonnaise or garlic dressing, onion, parsley, salt and lemon juice. Scoop 1/4-cup portions and form into a 3/4-inch-thick patties. Place on parchment-lined pan and freeze for 15 minutes so they are easier to handle.

  2. Dredge patties in flour, then dip in egg and then in panko crumbs. Let dry 10 minutes before frying. Place oil in a skillet and heat over medium-high about 3 minutes. Place patties, dry side down, into skillet and cook until medium golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip patties and fry another 2 minutes or until second side is medium golden brown. If desired, the patties can be briefly sautéed in oil and then finished in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes.

  3. Drain patties on paper towels. Serve hot with tartar sauce or Creamy Garlic Dressing.
