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).
