Directions for the Salmon Patties Recipe

Pre-Cooking Instructions:

Separate the white from two eggs and set it to the side.  Save the yolks for scrambled eggs the next day. 

Chop the onion as finely as possible.  Finely chopped onions will create a more uniform looking patty.

Make absolutely sure you're using old fashioned oats.  Quick oats are high glycemic, and we avoid it for many reasons.

You can increase or decrease the amount of olive oil you're using. You can also use coconut oil or avocado oil for frying.


  • Thoroughly flake the salmon steak in a bowl.  

  • In another bowl, add the egg whites, oatmeal, diced onion, crushed garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.  Mix thoroughly.  

  • Add flaked salmon into the  mixture and mix it until it's creamy.

  • Shape the mixture into several patties. 

  • Pre-heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
  • Place the salmon patties into pre-heated oiled pan and cook for three to five minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

I'll bet you can't wait to sink your teeth into these gorgeous patties.
