These Salmon Patties with Wasabi Aioli rock! They taste incredible. You can make them in less than 20 minutes. And they’re healthy!
These salmon patties are one of those meals you can throw together in no time. Using only pantry staples and a little time, you can have a meal on the table quickly. To make it better, it’s healthier and less expensive than stopping in the drive-thru or ordering in. Toss a quick side salad or one of those pasta veggie mix bags and you’ve got dinner in no time!
Canned salmon is one of those things that not a lot of people keep on hand…then there’s me. I LOVE it! Well, I love salmon in general. The canned stuff helps out when I don’t have a meal plan, or the time to thaw anything out. You may be surprised to know that canned salmon costs about the same as tuna! Seriously. Add some to your pantry, and you can mix up those emergency meals anytime.
All of the step-by-step pictures may not be the greatest, because these babies are not so easy to photograph. But believe me when I say, if you love salmon…you WILL fall in love with them.

- 1 can Salmon (or we've used fresh smoked salmon)
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (or panko breadcrumbs)
- 2 tablespoons diced green onions (or chives)
- 1 tablespoon Cajun spice seasoning (I used Zatarains)
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- your favorite buns
Wasabi Aioli or favorite toppings
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1 teaspoon Wasabi paste (or less for milder heat) (found in the Asian isle)
- Mix salmon, egg, 1/2 of the breadcrumbs,seasoning, and pepper in a bowl. Form into 3 or 4 patties.
- Put the rest of the bread crumbs on a plate to press the patties in to coat.
- Heat oil in a skillet just over medium heat. You can use Canola oil if you prefer, Olive oil normally isn't used for frying, but it works for these because they cook up quick. Olive oil has a low smoke point so you just have to be careful it doesn't get too hot.(I use a tiny drop of water from my finger to listen for a sizzle to know the oil is ready. (Just stand back in case it pops)
- Cook the patties until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Serve on on your favorite buns with favorite toppings or give the Wasabi Aioli a try. You could also make a Sriracha Aioli if you don't have the Wasabi, just a few drops to taste. The kids would probably prefer ketchup or mayo.
- To make this, just mix together your wasabi and mayonnaise. If you would like to try a Sriracha aioli instead, just swap sriracha for the wasabi.
