Easy Salmon Patties


Being pescetarian at a BBq party may seem hard: everyone having sausages, ribs, and burgers but you can not eat a gram of this. Since there are not a lot of pescetarian friendly sausages and patties in stores, I came up with this easy recipe of fish patties, that I can bring for myself. They are also great for burgers and smoking.

What’s good about these patties, is that the minute I put them on the grill, everyone start smelling fresh salmon and will be dying to try. So make sure to double the recipe if needed 😉


This dish can be made 2 days ahead if the fish is fresh.

Serving size: about 5 patties


  • 1 lbs of fresh salmon, no skin or bones.
  • 2 tbs of dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp of capers
  • 1 shallot
  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • Lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 Meyer lemon
  • 0/5 tsp f olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

In a blender, combine salmon cut into small cubes, capers, chopped shallot, Meyer lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Puree until well blended.

Transfer everything into a bowl and mix with olive oil, oats, and pepper.

Roll out the patties by hand and wrap in plastic if you are not cooking it right away.

Heat some olive oil in a pan, lower temperature to medium and cook for 3-4 minutes on both sides covered.

Goes well with roasted spring veggies and new potatoes with malt vinegar and sage.
