Hey Foodies!

Welcome back for a new super easy salmon patties recipe that you’re just going to love.

You can make it with your favorite healthy fish and a few basic ingredients, it’s packed with healthy omega-3 fats and great for meal prepping.

I’ve also included below all of the ways you can mix up the ingredients in this recipe and how I love to season and serve these healthy salmon cakes.

Plus, I’ll show you two ways to cook them up: on the stove and in the oven (and a bonus: the air fryer!).

Don’t miss my helpful Tips & Tricks below before you start making this baked salmon patties recipe.

Best Tips & Tricks for this easy salmon patties recipe

1. Which ingredients can be changed in this fresh salmon patties recipe?

If you’d like to add a bit of savory, briny flavor, chopped capers work great in your fresh salmon cakes. Make sure they’re thoroughly drained before folding a tablespoon or two into the salmon pattie mixture.

Chopped, pitted olives are another great addition for more flavor and moisture. 

If you’re not on keto, paleo, or Whole30 diets, you can make this fresh salmon patties recipe with crumbled crackers instead of almond flour.

Saltines or another salty, basic-flavored cracker will give the healthy salmon cakes a slightly crunchy, extra crisp texture.  

If you’re not a fan of salmon, you can also make fish patties with any fillet you like, such as tilapia, cod, pollock, or tuna.

You can also make healthy salmon cakes with canned or leftover salmon (more on that below).

2. Can you make these healthy salmon cakes with breadcrumbs?

I made these healthy salmon cakes without breadcrumbs to make them Keto, Paleo, Whole30 and gluten-free.

I used almond and coconut flour instead, but you can certainly replace these with 1 1/4 cups of panko breadcrumbs.

Gluten-free panko will also work.

Note that if you do opt for breadcrumbs, the patties will be crispier on the outside, especially if you fry them on the stove.  

Let me know how they came out in the comments below! I love to hear about how you tweak and adapt my recipes to your taste. And other foodies might find that helpful too!

3. What is the best canned salmon for healthy salmon cakes?

To make healthy fish patties with canned tuna or salmon, opt for a can labeled: 

Low sodium
ASMI and MAC certified
Non-GMO Project Verified
Contains skin and bone for extra calcium

Wild Planet* is a common supermarket brand that makes high-quality fish.

Make sure you drain the canned fish very well before adding it to the mixing bowl*. Too much moisture can affect the texture of the patties, causing them to fall apart while cooking.

4. What is the best sauce for fresh salmon patties?

I love to serve my fresh fish patties with sweet chili sauce or a spicy ranch. My favorite keto ranch dressing recipe is always a winner with this meal.  

Other classic dips you might like include marinara sauce, ketchup, or simple mayo. Rao’s marinara* is a great healthy and keto-friendly sauce to look for. 

5. Can you use these for meal planning?

Yes, you can meal prep salmon patties.

Cooked patties will freeze for up to 1 month. Simply reheat them on the stove, in the oven, or in the microwave whenever you want a quick meal.

You can also freeze uncooked patties for up to one month.

6. Can you make this easy salmon patties recipe in an air-fryer?

This recipe is perfect for an air fryer.

Simply follow the recipe as written. Instead of baking them in the oven, preheat your air fryer and cook the fresh salmon patties for 10-12 minutes. They will be golden and crisp on the outside and cooked through.
