Salmon Patties

This recipe works just as well for tuna patties.

Salmon Patties

Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Course Mains
Servings 4 People


  • 1 can 415gram Salmon
  • 2-3 Small - Medium Potatoes
  • 1 Egg
  • Fresh parsley (or dried)
  • Cracked pepper
  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup Plain flour
  • Olive oil


  • Cook, mash potatoes (no extras) and cool to at least room temperature.
  • Open and drain the salmon. Clean all the skin and bones out. Break into smaller pieces but not too fine.
  • Put both potato and salmon to a bowl adding the egg, some pepper and chopped parsley. Mix until combined and egg is well distributed.
  • In a fry pan heat enough oil to cover the bottom to shallow fry, medium-high heat. Roughly divide mixture into portions of 8. Wet your hands lightly then take a portion and roll into a ball, lightly patting into a patty then lightly dusting with the flour/crumb combination.
  • Place in the oil and repeat for all 8 patties until golden brown. Flip carefully at half way. Add more oil if needed. Place on paper towel to drain.
  • Serve immediately. We usually have with a salad.


This is a pretty easy recipe that has some give and take.
There are always variables, the size of potatoes, the size of eggs just adjust to your needs.
These are a basic cook item you are just heating up, cooking the egg through and browning the pattie.
I don't always use both flour and crumbs sometimes I use just wholemeal flour but either flour will work.
This is a nice cheap meal.  You can substitute the salmon for tuna.  Use flaked salmon steaks or other flaked and cooked fish.
I usually do potato earlier in the day and just prepare the rest near dinner time.
