Salmon Patties
  • 1 lb. fresh salmon fillets, skinned
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot or small yellow onion, minced
  • 3 Tb. red bell pepper, minced
  • ~2 Tb. fresh basil, minced
  • ~2 Tb. fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ c. Panko bread flakes (*)
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • ⅛ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tb. coconut oil
  • * you’ll need an additional ¼+ c. to coat patties before cooking
Sriracha Sauce
  • 3 Tb. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tb. sour cream
  • 1 Tb. Sriracha
  1. If salmon is not skinned, simply remove the skin with a sharp knife and discard.
  2. Divide the salmon in half.
  3. Place half the salmon in a food processor and pulse a few times to break it down -- this helps the patties stay together. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  4. Using a sharp knife, chop the remaining salmon into small pieces (but don’t overwork the fish to make it mushy); add to the mixing bowl.
  5. Add in garlic, onion, red bell pepper, basil, parsley, lemon juice, egg, salt and pepper and ½ c. Panko. Mix well to combine then refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  6. Make the Sriracha Sauce by whisking all ingredients in a small bowl; refrigerate until ready to use.
  7. Add approx. ¼ c. Panko to a small dish (this will be used to coat the patties before searing).
  8. Form 4 patties (size about 4-5" across, 1" thick), then place each in the Panko dish to coat both sides. Set aside.
  9. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  10. Heat a large, non-stick, oven-proof skillet on medium/high. Add coconut oil. Place each patty in the pan, then reduce heat to medium. Once the first side is golden brown (about 2-3 minutes), carefully flip and cook until the other side is slightly brown (about 1-2 minutes). Note: you may need to add a bit more coconut (or olive) oil to the pan if it's too dry - you don't want them to burn!
  11. Remove from burner and place the pan directly in the pre-heated oven, uncovered.
  12. Bake for about 10 minutes (you don’t want to overcook) until patties are just firm to the touch.
  13. Remove from oven.
  14. Place the patties on a bed of dressed greens, then top each with a dollop of the Sriracha Sauce.
