These salmon patties are so full of flavor! I give instructions for pan frying, baking, and how to freeze the salmon patties. these are low carb and Whole30 approved!
I have always been a big fan of crab cakes, salmon cakes, and tuna cakes. I love them all! My favorite would have to be these Baked Salmon Patties. They are easy to prepare and cheaper than crab cakes. Plus these are low carb and gluten free!
I like to use canned salmon for this recipe, or you could use salmon that was baked in the oven.
CANNED SALMON PATTIES
I always use canned salmon when I make salmon patties. I don't know about you, but I cannot take a beautiful fresh piece of salmon and turn it into a salmon patty. I like to use Wild Planet canned salmon because it is wild caught, not farmed.
The other ingredients in these baked salmon patties are almond flour, old bay seasoning, fresh dill, fresh chives, lemon zest and juice, diced red pepper, and egg for binding.
Before I add the egg, I like to stir everything really well and taste for seasoning. I actually didn't add any salt to my mix because the Old Bay seasoning has plenty of salt for me.
I then divided the mix into 9 salmon patties on a baking sheet.
I chose to bake the salmon patties because I prefer that method as opposed to standing at a skillet for 30 minutes cooking these in batches.
I will give baking and pan frying instructions in the recipe card below.
HOW TO FREEZE SALMON PATTIES
After you put the formed salmon patties on the lined baking sheet, put them in the freezer for 1 hour. Pull them out of the freezer and pull them off of the baking sheet and individually wrap them in plastic wrap. Store in a freezer safe container or bag for up to 3 months.
To bake after freezing: remove the salmon patties from the freezer wrapping and place on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes at 375F.
