  • 1/4 cup red onion minced
  • 1 whole egg lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 heaping teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning or your favorite seasoned salt
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned Panko bread crumbs or any kind you have on hand
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill plus more for garnish
  • 1 can 14 oz wild caught salmon, skin and bones removed, drained and flaked
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  • In a large mixing bowl combine the onion, egg, mayonnaise, pepper, Dijon, seasoned salt, bread crumbs, lemon juice, parsley and dill. Fold together with a spatula to combine. Add the flaked salmon and stir to combine. Form the salmon mixture firmly into 4 patties. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Once shimmering, add the salmon patties and cook until the bottom is golden brown. Carefully turn the salmon and cook until both sides are golden brown and crispy. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  • Serve immediately garnished with fresh dill, fresh lemon slices, hot sauce, and/or a dollop of your favorite salad dressing if desired. Cucumber ranch dressing is particularly great!
  • Refrigerate or freeze leftover salmon patties. ┬áRewarm in the microwave at 50% power until hot.
