Let me tell you, they came out fantastic and now they are a regular in our household. Let’s get to the recipe!

  • 16 oz Fresh Salmon

Salmon Patty Mix

  • Chopped salmon
  • 1 Egg
  • ¼ cup White onion
  • 2 tbsp Pickled Jalapenos
  • ¼ cup Chopped red bell peppers
  • 2 tbsp Fresh parsley
  • 1 cup Finely grated parmesan cheese
  • ¾ cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Fresh Dill Sauce

  • 1 cup Mayo
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Chopped parsley
  • 1 Lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp Chopped dill


  • Get a medium-sized mixing bowl and make your dill sauce. Add mayo, dijon mustard, chopped parsley, dill and lime juice. Mix well and place in the fridge until needed.
  • Prepare the rest of your ingredients for your salmon patties and have them measured out. 
  • Place your 16 ounces of salmon on a cutting board and finely chop until it is basically minced. Now add it to a large mixing bowl. Add one egg, onion, pickled jalapeños, red bell pepper, parsley, parmesan cheese, panko and Worcestershire sauce. Hand mix for a few mins and then form 3-4 ounce patties. Place wax paper on a cutting board and place your hand-formed patties on it. Once all of the patties are formed, place them in the fridge for 30 mins. This will help the patties hold their form during cooking.
  • Place a skillet over medium heat, about 350 degrees, and add 3-4 cups of cooking oil. About 1 inch in depth. Let the oil heat up.
  • Fry your salmon patties until a golden crisp crust, about 2-3 mins, and then flip and repeat the same process.
  • Pour the dill sauce into a dipping bowl. Portion it out according to who you are serving for dinner.
  • Plate the salmon patties with the dill dipping sauce.
  • Serve and enjoy with friends and family!
