Salmon Patties are perhaps one of the best recipes you can have up your sleeve …

Salmon Patties are so quick and easy to make (and you can learn the recipe by heart to make it even faster), they are great to keep in the fridge to eat hot or cold as leftovers and everyone loves Salmon Patties!

Everyone has their favourite recipe for Salmon Patties – we love this one for the fact it contains only 4 ingredients so it’s nice and easy to remember.

If you’re wondering about the best potatoes to use for your mashed potato in this recipe, we’d recommend Desiree or Dutch Cream Potatoes (if you can find them). This article from Poh’s Kitchen is a great guide to potatoes.

Serve these delicious Salmon Patties with a crunchy green salad filled with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, grated carrot and avocado.  Then look for a delicious Sweet Chilli Sauce or a wholesome Tomato & Capsicum Relish (recipe here).

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 3 cups mashed potato
  • 213 grams tin salmon (fresh flaked Salmon can be used)
  • 2 beaten egg
  • 4 tbsp whole egg mayonnaise
  • 1 pinch salt & pepper


  1. Boil enough potatoes for 3 cups of mashed potatoes, mash and let cool.
  2. Add drained salmon to mashed potatoes. Add 1 whisked egg , mayonaise and salt and pepper. combine
  3. shape into pattie sizes and coat with beaten egg and coat with bread crumbs
  4. lquickly lighly shallow fry patties on both sides and then put on grease proof paper and bake for approximately 5-10 minutes in moderate oven
  5. serve with extra mayonnaise and side of salad

  • We don’t keep mayonnaise in the house, it is an interesting ingredient for this recipe.


  • My mouth is watering just thinking of these. My mum made the best salmon rissoles along with a homemade tomato sauce that we dipped the patties into. The salmon patties were also delicious cold the next day (if there were any left over). I think the quantity she made just got bigger and bigger as time went by.


  • Made something similar based of this recipe instead of canned salmon I used canned tuna and was a hit with the family.


  • A fabulous recipe just like mum makes!


  • Made these the other night as I’d had a can of salmon in the fridge for a while and wanted to use it up. I used half sweet potato and regular potatoes and added a couple finely chopped up shallots and finely chopped sweet red pepper once again just using up stuff. The patties were a little soft to work with but my fussy hubby went back for 2nds so winner right here. Will be making again.


  • Sounds very easy might try this one out this week I have a can of salmon to use up. Be a nice change


  • Posted in haby and toddler, I can confitm yummy for the Mummiesas well


  • Yum these look so good and easy too


  • Tried this recipe and it was a huge hit


  • my mum made these for us all the time!


  • These found delicious! Might have to make some for myself


  • Great having left overs so you don’t have to cook for the next night.


  • These remind me of my childhood, mum used to always make these


  • Totally making these tonight for dinner


  • This seems really easy – I’ll give it a try,
