Indulge in the deliciousness of homemade salmon patties with this easy-to-follow recipe. These savory delights are perfect for a quick and satisfying meal. Packed with flavor and protein, they’re a great way to enjoy the goodness of salmon in a different form.


  • 1 pound fresh or canned salmon, flaked
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, for cooking


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flaked salmon, breadcrumbs, red onion, garlic, parsley, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, Old Bay seasoning (if using), salt, and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  2. Add the beaten eggs to the mixture and stir until everything is well combined. Allow the mixture to rest for a few minutes to let the breadcrumbs absorb some moisture.
  3. Shape the mixture into patties of your desired size. If the mixture is too wet, you can add more breadcrumbs to achieve the right consistency.
  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place the salmon patties in the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Once cooked, transfer the salmon patties to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  6. Serve the salmon patties hot with your favorite dipping sauce or on a bed of mixed greens for a light and refreshing meal.

Tips and Variations:

  • For added crunch, you can coat the salmon patties with Panko breadcrumbs before cooking.
  • Customize the flavor by adding ingredients like grated Parmesan cheese or chopped green onions.
  • Experiment with different seasonings such as cayenne pepper or smoked paprika to give the patties a unique twist.
  • These patties can be served in a burger bun with lettuce, tomato, and your favorite sauce for a salmon burger experience.
