Salmon Patties

Salmon Patties

By: Sammy Jones

An easy meal prep lunch or a lazy salmon patty Sunday, filled with pantry staples and lots of flavour.



Prep time

Cook time



  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, peeled & cut into 1cm cubes
  • 400g tin Atlantic salmon, liquid drained
  • 1 carrot, grated (placed on paper towel to absorb excess moisture)
  • 2 tbsp mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 3⁄4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1⁄2 tsp chilli flakes
  • Oil, for shallow frying
  • 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp chopped dill
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  • In a medium-sized saucepan, place potatoes and cover with water. Bring to the boil and continue to cook for 10 mins on a medium/low heat or until quite soft. Drain the water and return the potatoes to the saucepan.
  • Mash the potato until soft, add in salmon, carrot, herbs and garlic salt and continue to mash.
  • Divide into 10-12 equal portions and roll into a nice ball shape and set aside for 15 mins.
  • Add all ingredients of the aioli into a serving bowl and set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine breadcrumbs, paprika and chilli flakes and roll each patty in breadcrumbs.
  • On a medium heat, add cooking oil into a large frying pan. Add 5-6 patties (depending on your pan size) and cook until golden on each side. Repeat this process until all patties are cooked.
  • Serve with a green or coleslaw salad or just on their own with the aioli.
  • Tip: If you have an air fryer, they cook well for a low-oil option. Cook for 15-20 mins at 185°C.
