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).

  • Yep, always a favourite in my house. I never had an issue getting my kids to eat fish with this recipe. Added veggies easy to do too


  • A good simple recipe. Great for kids to have a go.


  • these look yummy and healthy


  • Err – YUM. These look amazing!


  • Not a fan of salmon but have been making these with tuna since I was a kid. Great recipe for kids to help with they love to roll the patties and dip in breadcrumbs.


  • This sounds so simple and yummy. I don’t have babies or toddlers but I think even my teenagers would like this.


  • YUM great recipe. Sometimes I substitute the potato for sweet potato for a healthier option.


  • Yum, what a great recipe. Good for everyone as well, i know my kids would love them.


  • Also great with tinned tuna or just about any fish really. Add different veggies. Brilliant kids meal


  • I made these and I have to say they are the best I have ever tasted. Didn’t take me too long and they went down a treat! None were left over.


  • Thanks for the recipe….it looks easy, a great way to use up left over potatoes and we always have all the ingredients in our pantry. Love the fact it is simple and low cost. Going to try this on the weekend.


  • 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!
