I am a huge salmon fan. Like my fanaticism surrounding the sport of hockey, I find new and delicious ways to serve salmon all the time. My favorite is simple and grilled on cedar planks.
I have also done salmon with lentils in a crock pot. The lentils cook all day and the salmon goes in on top of parchment paper to steam when you get home from work for 25 minutes. It is a wonderful recipe and tastes delicious.
This past week I wanted salmon and just couldn’t justify the current market price for fresh salmon. I always keep a can of salmon available, just in case of power outages and such in the winter months. So, I went in search of a salmon patty recipe that I had all the ingredients on hand. This in itself is no easy task.
As I do with many recipes, I modified this one I found on AllRecipes.com slightly as I did not have dill weed or celery salt available. My version is below.
- 1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup garlic and herb seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup dry potato flakes
- 1 medium onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
In a medium bowl, mix salmon, eggs, garlic and herb seasoned dry bread crumbs, dry potato flakes, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Form the mixture into 2 inch balls, and flatten into patties about 1/2 inch thick.
Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. In batches, cook patties about 5 minutes on each side, until lightly browned.

Did you serve it with some kind of sauce or just au naturel? And salmon (if you refuse to buy the farmed kind which I started doing a while ago) is, indeed, pricey!!
I ate mine with just a squeeze of lemon juice. The kids put them between bread with a variety of different stuff on them – tartar sauce, honey mustard, who know what else.
Sounds good! I will try the Lentil recipe! I’m always looking to use the crock pot in ways other than stew. My boys are not big crock pot dinner fans, but I am!
I used left over salmon and made a salmon bisque using a crab bisque recipe. It was delicious!
If I manage to find where I tucked that issue of Clean Eating magazine with the salmon and lentils in the crock pot recipe, I will post it. It was delicious. It also was great as I served two seatings of dinner – the kids early as there were evening activities, a friend and I a bit later.
That sounds good! 🙂 I like to make veggie burgers using mashed lima beans. Black beans are also good to use. LOL There’s ample seasoning, onion, a lil’ egg and some filler and whatnot. They’re really pretty good! I’m going to try your recipe next! 🙂
Never tried one with mashed limas before but black beans – all the time…yum!!
