Crispy Salmon Patties Recipe Puts an Asian Twist On a Southern Staple (20 Minutes)

Salmon patties are a quick, family pleasing and budget-friendly dinner. Salmon patties can be made in so many different ways. These crispy skillet salmon patties put an Asian twist on the southern staple.

This Asian salmon patties recipe is made with canned salmon, panko breadcrumbs, an egg, fresh ginger or ground ginger, crushed red pepper flakes (optional, but adds a little kick), lemon zest for freshness, green onions, sweet red bell pepper and toasted sesame oil. Mix the ingredients together in one bowl, shape into patties and pan fry until crispy and golden brown.

Not only are you serving your family a flavorful meal quick, but they get the health benefits of salmon. Serve these crispy salmon cakes for dinner with your favorite sides and a dipping sauce. We like sweet chili sauce, creamy Asian dipping sauce or Chinese duck sauce.

Recipe Notes

  • If you avoid canned salmon because it takes you forever to remove the bones (or it just grosses you out!), here’s a tip for you: crush the bones with your fingers when breaking up the salmon. The salmon bones literally turn to powder and disappear into the fish. The healthy bonus? The bones are full of bone-building calcium. Read more.
  • If you prefer to use fresh salmon, cook about 1 pound of salmon fillets, cool and then flake into small pieces. 
  • If you want salmon patties for appetizers, simply form into smaller patties.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the salmon, 1/4 cup panko, egg, ginger, crushed red pepper flakes, lemon zest, green onion, red bell pepper and sesame oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well. (If the mixture is too loose, add a little more panko.)
  2. Put the 1/2 cup of panko onto a plate. Shape the salmon mixture into eight patties. 
  3. Heat a little vegetable oil in a large skillet. Dredge the patties in the panko and then put into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. (You may have to fry in two batches.) Serve with lemon wedges.
