Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, combine salmon, shallots, ginger, egg, crushed red pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper. Form mixture into eight 1-inch-thick patties, packing each firmly; transfer to a plate. Place in freezer until just firm, about 20 minutes.

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon patties; cook until browned on both sides and just opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes per side, turning carefully. Serve with lime wedges and Sesame Mayonnaise, if desired.

  • Make the sesame mayonnaise: In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, scallions, lime juice, and sesame oil. Chill until ready to serve.

Cook's Notes

The uncooked patties can be refrigerated, covered with plastic, up to one day, or wrap the patties individually, and freeze up to two months; thaw before cooking.

Fantastic! I cut the salt to almost nothing and didn't miss it, added just a little bit of bread crumb because my salmon was very moist. Also, I added a little sesame oil to the pan while frying which may have been unnecessary but did add a nice, subtle flavor. These fried up beautifully and have wonderful flavor and texture despite there being so few ingredients.

We love this recipe! The 20 minutes in the freezer is key to them not falling apart. Do not be afraid of the fresh ginger, it is amazing!

I loved this recipe. I putted only 1 tablespoon of ginger and I added a bit of bread crumbs to help everything stick together.

These are awful. I have a great family recipe for salmon patties that I make frequently. Compared to those, this one is horrible. I was told by my friends to stick with my recipe; That they never wanted to eat these again. They are much too salty, and would not hold together. Add another egg if you plan on trying these.

Also, if you read the recipe it calls for uncooked salmon. As for canned salmon, I would imagine that you could use it.

I wonder if you could use canned salmon if you don't have fresh salmon.
