  • 1 lb salmon cooked and flaked
  • 1/2 cup green onions diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian herbs seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper or to taste
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoon hot sauce optional
  • Canola or vegetable oil to cook the patties


  1. Place salmon skin-side down in a lightly greased baking sheet, and season with some salt and pepper. Brush with olive oil, and bake it for 10 minutes (uncovered) in the oven at 425˚F.
  2. Once baked, discard the skin, and flake the salmon with a fork. If it has any bones, remove them.
  3. Next, add to the salmon the rest of the ingredients, and mix them together using your hands.
  4. Use an ice cream scoop for portioning so each salmon patty is about the same size, and make it into patties.
  5. In a skillet, add some canola or vegetable oil, about 1 inch from the surface. Once the oil is sizzling, add the patties to the pan. Cook on each side for about 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown, turning gently.
  6. Drain on paper towels and serve.
