Salmon Patties with Flax {Gluten-Free}
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 4 medium patties
  • 1 can wild salmon (6-oz.)
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 3 Tb. ground flax seed
  • 2 Tb. chopped green onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 to 2 tsp. sriracha sauce (optional, but so good)
  • ¼ tsp. each salt & black pepper (or to taste)
  1. Drain the salmon and flake into a medium bowl.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Let sit for 5 minutes before dividing evenly into 4 patties.
  4. Heat oil in a skillet on medium heat and then add patties, sautéing until browned, about 4 minutes. Flip patties and cook another 4 minutes or until evenly cooked and browned on each side.
  5. Serving suggestions: I like to pair these in the summer with a green salad with chickpeas and onions, drizzled with a Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing (pictured in the photo below). They also make great salmon burgers served with a whole wheat bun, lettuce and tomato. The patties will be more of a 'slider' size, though, so when making regular burger-sized patties, I'd double the recipe so that the 4 patties would fit a normal sized bun.
