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).

  • 3 cups mashed potato
  • 213 grams tin salmon (fresh flaked Salmon can be used)
  • 2 beaten egg

  • This will perfect for our dinner tonight. Simple and delicious


  • Love how simple these are. I wonder what can be substituted for mayonnaise to make it a bit healthier? Canned salmon is underrated.


  • Finally got to make these tonight for dinner. The whole family loved them. They turned out delicious and crunchy. Added some vegetables on the side. The family loved them as we had no let overs. Super easy.


  • These sound delicious!
    I might opt out of the mayonnaise as I’m not a big fan but I’ll definitely be giving these a go.


  • Easy way to get some sneaky omega 3s into the kids diet!


  • Love love salmon patties and love the mixture of ingredients you can add.


  • I think I’d swap the salmon out for tuna perhaps?


  • Wow, I would love to give this a try. I tried similar one but instead of potato, I only used flour. Hope to make it good!


  • Looks amazing thanks for sharing your recipe


  • Great recipe to try. Thanks for this.


  • Would be a great way to try Salmon. Will give this one a go. Thank you


  • Reminds me of when my Mum used to make them. You could always use tuna if you weren’t a salmon as well.


  • These sound like a great meal prep idea on top of some veggies


  • Yum, I can’t wait to try this one, I haven’t had salmon patties in decades.


  • These look great, not a lot of ingredients and easy to make
