Salmon Patties

Recipe by Dee


  • 2 5 oz. cans salmon packed in water

  • 2-3 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 large carrot, grated

  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs

  • 1/2 tsp. plus 1/4 tsp. fine sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric

  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin

  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Drain the canned salmon and place it into a medium mixing bowl. Use a fork to break the salmon into small flakes. Add the eggs, carrot, panko, spices and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt to the salmon. Stir with the fork until well combined. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a 10-inch stainless steel skillet over medium heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, take a small amount of the salmon mixture and cook for one minute on both sides. Taste and add the extra 1/4 teaspoon of salt if necessary.
  • Place an english muffin ring in the pan. Measure out 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup of the salmon mixture and place it into the mold. Use the fork to press the salmon into an even layer and carefully remove the ring.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the bottom is toasty brown. Flip and cook the other side for 2-3 more minutes. Remove from the pan and place on a paper towel. Repeat with the rest of the salmon.
  • These salmon patties will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days. Enjoy!!


  •  You can find english muffin rings online for under $15 and can use them for making fried eggs, pancakes, shaping meat patties, etc. so you can get your money’s worth.
  • A third cup of this mixture will make five skinny patties, a half cup will make four big ones.
  • Could you make the salmon patties the same way on a pancake griddle so you can cook more than one at a time? Absolutely. The only reason I did not make these on a griddle is because I don’t have one. 


These salmon patties are nostalgia on a plate.

Granted, I didn’t like them as much when I was a kid, unless they were smothered in ketchup.

Ketchup fixes everything.

But I like salmon patties more as an adult. Maybe it’s because my tastebuds have changed, or it’s because it’s a totally different recipe.

Or maybe it’s the nostalgia? 

I don’t know. 

Anyway, I’m going to eat one of these now.

And I won’t even add ketchup.
