Author Amy - The Speedy Spatula


  • 14.75 oz cooked, pink canned salmon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp dried basil flakes
  • 1 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh minced garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • organic, extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all ingredients EXCEPT the olive oil. 

  2. Stir the ingredients together until well mixed. 

  3. Please note, if your canned salmon contains bones and skin, these are both completely edible and actually very good for you. Once the salmon patties are cooked, you will not notice any difference in taste or texture by leaving the bones and skin in the patties. The bones are not sharp and turn to powder once cooked as does the skin. 

  4. Pour about 1 -2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet and heat over medium high heat until the oil is hot. 

  5. Scoop the salmon out of the mixing bowl with a tablespoon and form in to a patty about the size of the bottom of a water bottle. 

  6. Place the patties into the skillet and heat on each side, turning over as needed, after about 1-2 minutes per side. 

  7. Remove from skillet and serve with your choice of dipping sauce. 


  1. To make the "Awesome Sauce" for dipping, combine equal parts ketchup and mayonnaise and stir until well combined. This sauce is perfect for dipping fries or salmon patties in!
