Ingredients

  • 2 14.75 ounce cans wild red salmon (or you can use pink salmon like I did in the video)
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 green onions (minced)
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 4 tablespoons avocado oil (or sub with olive oil)

Instructions

  • Drain salmon and pick out all of the good meat you want to use. I'm sure all of it can be used, but I like to discard any bone and skin because I think its gross. Personal preference.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine salmon meat, eggs, green onions, panko bread crumbs, parmesan, and lime juice. Use hands to combine and then form into 8 patties that are no more than one inch thick.
  • Heat large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil. When oil is hot enough to bubble when a bread crumb gets tossed in, add your salmon patties. Be sure to leave enough room to have a good inch in between each patty, so you may need to cook them in two batches. Cook until golden brown, about 5-10 minutes, then flip and cook until golden brown on other side.
  • Serve warm. They also taste excellent cold on top of salad.

Notes

  • Recipe easily doubles or triples if you want leftovers, however you may need to cook in batches to ensure they crisp properly.
  • Popular reader variations/add-ins include lemon juice, crushed crackers, sauteed yellow onion, corn meal, fresh dill
