Salmon Patty Additions

  • c

For Thanksgiving, we had a small turkey, and my cousin's fisherman boyfriend brought a large salmon and fried it up like they do in his Greek village, for an appetizer! (had I known, I would have skipped the turkey) I still have lots of salmon left over, and I'm planning to make salmon patties tomorrow for a brunch. The additions I'm planning on at this time:

-leaf celery (from my farm)
-finely chopped white onions
-bread crumbs
-a few chopped capers

Any other suggestions for additions? Can I freeze this cooked salmon? Other left over deliciously fresh cooked salmon uses?

  1. Make asian salmon patties, with panko or white bread crumbs, sesame seeds, grated ginger, lime zest, mayonaise, and a little soy sauce. Serve with sauteed broccoli, green beans, or asparagus.

    1. If I'm not mistaken, I believe my mom added pimentos when I was young.

      1. The salmon looks great. Your idea sounds yummy. For me, I would also add a little dijon, chives, and cayenne. Would dredge w/ bread crumbs or panko and perhaps serve w/ aioli (garlic mayo) atop bed of baby greens.

        Other uses:
        Mixed into soft, fluffy scrambled eggs w/ chives and brie--a decadent brunch item

        1. I just recently made these with the same kind of ingredients along with the addition of a little bit of minced dill. I served them with my own tartar sauce, fresh lime wedges and pickled ginger slices. They were superb.

          1. Definitely the addition of some dijon mustard, scallions garlic, old bay seasoning. when I do mine I coat them in Crushed up Corn flakes mixed with pistaschio nuts. I serve them with a pureed cuckember/sour cream/mayo/dill sauce
