Salmon Patties

Need an inexpensive way to get wild salmon, try it from a can.  Salmon patties are an excellent way to use wild canned salmon and keep grocery costs down.  Of course if you prefer to buy fresh salmon, by all means use it; just make sure it’s wild salmon.  You can also double or triple this recipe, bake all the patties, then freeze some for a quick dinner another night.  Some grocery stores sell larger cans of salmon if you prefer to make extra.  Or go to a big grocery club store and buy canned salmon in bulk.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4 patties, 2 people


1 6-oz can of wild salmon

¼ cup mayonnaise

¼ cup wheat germ, or bread crumbs

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (or yellow mustard)

1 lemon – zest and juice

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried marjoram

1 shallot, finely diced

1 egg

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix together all ingredients listed above.  Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop out four portions and shape into patties.  Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with a side of rice and roasted asparagus for a complete meal!

If you made extras, wrap the baked patties in plastic wrap and put them in a sealed freezer bag.  Reheat them in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes.
