Keto Salmon Patties

10 ratings

If you’re in search of a burger-alternative, salmon patties are the way to go! Salmon is incredibly healthy for you, since the protein is lean and the fat that is there helps fight bad cholesterol. You can enjoy the salmon patties as they are, or you can wrap them in lettuce or seaweed sheets. You can even break them up over a salad! At your discretion, you can garnish your salmon patties with sriracha drizzles and sesame seeds.

Recipe Steps

38 min

  • Step 1

    Begin by finely chopping the salmon. Dice it all into as small pieces as possible, as this will make the cooking process easier later on.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    In a bowl, combine the chopped salmon with all the remaining ingredients except for the avocado oil.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Melt a ½ TB of the avocado oil in a medium sized skillet on medium-low heat. Make the sure skillet is fully heated through before continuing. Then, divide the salmon mixture into 4 portions. Lump together the first portion and place it in the center of the pan.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Let the lump of salmon mix cook for about 10 seconds. Then, use a spatula to flatten the salmon pattie down into a disk just under 1-inch thick. Place a lid over the skillet, and let the patty cook for about 2 minutes. The fat that rises will help hold the patty together.
  • Step 5

    Remove the lid, and let the patty continue to cook until you feel it easily release from the pan and is sturdy enough to flip (2-3 minutes). Then, use the spatula to flip the patty over. You can Return the lid to the pan for an additional minute. Let the other side cook for about 2-3 minutes total.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Remove the salmon patty from the skillet. Repeat steps 3-5 to cook the remaining three salmon patties.
    Step 6

    When it says cut the pieces as small as possible it means it. Mine stuck together but with some help of extra utensils. Also for my pallet it could do with a little less salt, maybe 1/8tsp v what the recipe says. I also didn’t have fresh green onion so I used chives. Turned out great!

        I usedThis recipe but added crushed pork rinds as the binder. The pork rinds have zero carbs. They turned out great.

          I see everyone saying they didn’t stick together but I had no problems. They were delicious and I will definitely be making them again. They were a hit!

            If you Take 1/4 of the salmon and put it in a food processor and blend it and then add it to the cubes the patty stick together much better. Delicious and easy!!!
