Salmon patties, also endearingly known as salmon cakes, bring to the table a delightful dish steeped in diverse culinary traditions. This recipe masterfully melds the rich flavors of fresh salmon with an aromatic mix of herbs, spices, and breadcrumbs, crafting a patty that crisply crunches on the outside while preserving a moist interior. As a popular choice amongst seafood enthusiasts, salmon patties are not only a joy to the palate but also an excellent means of integrating the healthful omega-3 fatty acids into your diet.
Pairing and serving these patties opens up a spectrum of flavorful opportunities. A favored approach is to lay them atop a bed of assorted greens, lightly drizzled with a zesty lemon-garlic aioli or classic tartar sauce, offering a vibrant, tangy juxtaposition to the patties’ savory nature. Alternatively, they can be transformed into a scrumptious sandwich, nestled within a toasted bun, adorned with lettuce, tomato, and a spirited splash of lemon juice. For a more robust meal, consider accompanying your salmon patties with a side of steamed vegetables, and perhaps a portion of creamy mashed potatoes or buttered rice.
Recipe for Succulent Salmon Patties:
24 ounces of canned salmon
6 green onions, finely minced
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup of panko breadcrumbs
Juice from 1 lime
4 tablespoons of olive oil
In a bowl, amalgamate the canned salmon (ensuring it is drained and flaked), eggs, minced green onions, panko breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, and lime juice.
Ensure all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Shape the mixture into patties, each to your preferred size. Aim for about 8 patties of around 1-inch thickness.
In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
Gently lay the salmon patties into the skillet, cooking each side for approximately 7 minutes, or until each patty has achieved a golden-brown hue and is cooked throughout.
Transfer the patties from the skillet to paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
Serve and savor your homemade salmon patties with an array of your chosen sides and condiments. Bon appétit!
