PREP

35 minutes

COOK

30 minutes

SERVINGS

4 Servings

Ingredients:

  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

Salmon Patties
  1. Drain salmon.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine salmon meat, eggs, green onions, spinach, carrots, panko bread crumbs, parmesan, lemon juice, and dijon mustard. Use hands to mix and then form into 4 patties that are no more than one inch thick.
  3. Heat large skillet over medium high heat. Add olive oil. When olive oil is hot enough to bubble when a bread crumb gets tossed in, add your salmon patties. Be sure to leave enough room to have a good inch in between each patty, so you may need to cook them in two batches.
  4. Cook until golden brown in large frying pan, about 5-10 minutes, then flip and cook until golden brown on other side.
  5. Serve warm. They also taste great cold on top of salad.
Easy Tzatziki Sauce
  1. In a medium bowl and stir in the yogurt, sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar, dill, garlic, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Serve cold or at room temperature.

Salmon Patties with Easy Tzatziki Sauce

These Salmon Patties with Easy Tzatziki Sauce are a great meal prep protein option. Serve them hot with dinner and then use the leftovers the next day to top a salad! Think outside of the box with protein, give healthy salmon patties a try! I even snuck in a few extra veggies.

Canned foods often get a bad rep however they can be very nutrient dense! One serving of canned salmon can provide up to 16 grams of protein, heart healthy fats and multiple micronutrients. Yes, it’s higher in sodium but by pairing canned salmon with fresh veggies it still can be a part of a healthy balanced meal.

Salmon patties were definitely a dinner staple growing up in Alaska. Get creative with salmon recipes to meet your weekly recommendation of 3-4 servings! I am bias as an Alaskan dietitian but the benefits of including salmon regularly in your diet are awesome!

Salmon Patties and Nutrition Info:

Canned Salmon: contains protein, omega 3s, vitamin D, B vitamins, phosphorus and selenium. Salmon consumption has been linked to anti-inflammatory properties, brain, heart and bone health and is a protein source to keep you full longer.

Spinach: Spinach is low in carbs but high in fiber which may improve digestion. Spinach also has high amounts of carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, and calcium. This leafy veggie may decrease oxidative stress, improve eye health, and help prevent heart disease and cancer.

Greek Yogurt: Both Greek and regular yogurt are packed with high quality nutrients and offer multiple health benefits. Regular and Greek yogurt are both fermented dairy products, but Greek yogurt is strained to make it much thicker and tangier than regular yogurt and often contains higher protein amounts.
