1 large slice bread (crust removed), shredded (1 cup, 50 g)

3 tablespoons green onion, chopped (including the green parts)

1 medium garlic clove, minced

1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried

3 tablespoons green bell pepper, minced

1 tablespoon flour

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika

1 teaspoon lemon zest

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

Several turns of freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


Mix the patty ingredients: In a large bowl, gently mix together the salmon (including 2 tablespoons of the can liquid), bread, green onion, garlic, dill, bell pepper, flour, egg, paprika, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Form the patties: Form 8 patties, about 1/2 inch thick.

Chill at least 30 minutes: Cover the patties and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (or up to several hours) to help them firm up.

Brown in skillet: Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Cook the patties until nicely browned on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Did you love the recipe! Leave a comment and give us some stars below!
