  • 13-15 ounces Canned salmon
  • 1 cup Bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons Green onions, chopped Any type of onion can be used
  • 2 tablespoons Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise Plus one extra tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Fine ground sea salt
  • 2 large Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons Ghee, olive oil, or other fat suitable for sautéing


  • Open can(s) of salmon and drain liquid if desired.
  • Transfer salmon to a bowl and break into chunks using a fork.
  • Add all the other ingredients to the bowl, reserving 1/3 of the bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, and mix gently to combine.
  • Shape salmon mixture into 4 patties and rub each patty with a bit of mayonnaise and then coat with remaining 1/3 of bread crumbs.
  • Melt ghee or other cooking fat in a frying pan on medium heat and then place each patty into the frying pan and saute each side for 3 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown. Serve immediately.



Te extend this recipe, you can add the full cup of bread crumbs to the salmon mixture and make 6 patties instead of 4.  If you do this, you will need an additional 1/3 cup of bread crumbs to coat the patties as you would have used the original 1/3 cup to add to the salmon mixture.
