Instructions

Salmon Patties

  • If using canned salmon, drain and reserve the liquid from the salmon. Flake with a fork. You’ll use reserved liquid only if the batter will seem too dry. But it’s better to have then regret afterwords.
  • If using fresh salmon fillet, remove the bones with fish bone tweezers or small tongs. Chop finely.
  • In a large bowl mix salmon, lemon juice and lemon zest if you’re using organic lemons.
    Add chopped parsley and an egg. Mix well.
  • Start adding a few tablespoons of breadcrumbs, add more if needed. The mix should remain soft but still come together to form patties.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or simple your hands form salmon balls and press them lightly.
  • At this point you can either bake them in the oven on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. OR...
  • Bread each salmon patty in a bowl with breadcrumbs and fry the in a preheated pan with 3-4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
    It takes about 3-4 minutes on medium-love heat to brown salmon patties on each side.
  • Once ready transfer salmon patties on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Dipping Sauce

  • Pit and mash avocados with cream cheese, add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve salmon patties with avocado dipping sauce or lemon wedges.
