Easy Salmon Patties

Easy Salmon Patties

Everybody needs some quick dinner ideas to use when you’re short on time, but still want to cook a nutritious meal. Even better if you can easily keep the ingredients on hand.

These salmon patties fit the bill, and can be adapted for your preferred ingredients.

Here’s what I use, with substitution ideas:

2 cans of salmon (about 5 oz each)
1 egg, or the equivalent egg substitute
1/2 cup of gluten free flour (I use plantain flour, but almond flour, rice flour, or something similar will work)
1/4 cup of chopped veggies like celery, onion, bell pepper, scallions (any combination)
1/2 tsp horseradish (or more to taste)
a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
oil for cooking the patties (olive, palm, coconut, avocado, etc.)

Simply sauté the chopped veggies in some oil. While they’re cooking, drain your salmon, and mix well with the flour, egg, horseradish, lemon juice and seasonings. Add in the the drained veggies, and shape into patties. Cook the patties in your oil until browned on each side. That’s it! Your dinner is ready – just add a green salad and maybe some sweet potatoes on the side.
