Salmon patties are a tasty way to satisfy your summertime seafood need. Sweet onions, fresh herbs, breadcrumbs, and spices are combined with flaky salmon before it is fried till golden and crisp.

Serve them with your preferred dip or tartar sauce, or simply eat them on their own!

You might recall the delicious baked salmon with a herb crust I recently made, which was motivated by our recent Alaskan cruise! Our voyage was sponsored by Princess Cruises, who also provided us with tons of excellent seafood and the recipe for these mouthwatering salmon patties.

We literally can’t stop talking about how much fun we had on the cruise with my hubby and our pals!

Taking a Princess Cruises Alaskan cruise is undoubtedly one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done.

Everyone should travel to Alaska at least once in their lifetime; it should be on their bucket list! In May, we had fantastic weather and took a ton of fantastic trips. Since there are so many options for trips, there is something for everyone!

We had the opportunity to observe glaciers, including the Mendenhall Glacier, which is undoubtedly one of the most amazing vistas you will ever see.

The Glacier Point Wilderness Safari and the Whale Watching & Seafood Feast were two of our favorites, and what a feast they were too!

I’m not even sure how many whales we saw (not only on the whale-watching tour but on the salmon fishing tour too).

It was undoubtedly a once-in-a-lifetime experience! It was difficult to believe we were there because of the gorgeous ocean water, a ton of wildlife, and mountain ranges that looked like they belonged in a nature magazine.

I truly enjoyed every second of our cruise; the scenery was magnificent, the shore excursions were breathtaking, and it was great fun to travel with my fellow bloggers.

When I think of seafood, I always remember our Alaskan trip, and of course, it has motivated me to come up with more delicious seafood recipes for you guys to try. Consequently, let’s put these salmon patties on your table.

Making Salmon Patties

Making these joy-filled tiny patties doesn’t take very long. Salmon leftovers work just as well as the canned salmon I use.

  • Salmon should be flaked using a fork (double check for any bones that might have been missed when your salmon was filleted).
  • To soften the onions, cook them in butter.
  • After gently blending all of the ingredients, chill for a short while. Make patties, then chill once more.
  • Your salmon patties should be brown on all sides after frying.
  • Serve with tartar sauce made from dill and pickles.
  • The chilling procedures are crucial to help the salmon cakes stick together, just like in my favorite crab cake recipe. This is the ideal time to prepare your tartar sauce.

Serving suggestions

This is such a simple dinner option: salmon patties (or make for a quick lunch too). I adore serving them outside with a glass of white wine, a wonderful salad with lemon vinaigrette, and a fresh zucchini salad.

The best salmon patties for a quick lunch are made from tender, flaky fish combined with our favorite seasonings.

  1. Cook onion in melted butter for 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Cool.
  2. Salmon that has been drained, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, old bay seasoning, eggs, lemon, dill, and parsley are all combined in a basin. Mix in the cooked onions.
  3. Give the mixture 15 minutes to chill. Take the salmon mixture out of the fridge and shape it into patties.
  4. Put the last 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Salmon are gently pressed to adhere after being dipped in breadcrumbs. Place for at least 20 minutes and up to an hour in the refrigerator (this helps them to hold their shape).
  5. Over medium heat, preheat a skillet or cast-iron pan. Cook salmon in olive oil in a pan until brown.
  6. If preferred, garnish with more herbs and tartar sauce.
