Serves Preparation Time Cooking Time
2 People 5-10 Minutes 15-20 Minutes


  • 1 oz canned salmon
  • ¼ cup onion, finely grated
  • 2 tbsp minced basil or parsley
  • ¼ to ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 to 1½ cups ground whole wheat cracker crumbs / bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup ground flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


Step 1

Drain the salmon and place in a bowl, while reserving the liquid separately. Use a fork to separate or flake the fish. Mix in grated onion, chopped basil or parsley and pepper. Next, add two beaten eggs and blend until fish gets thoroughly moistened.

Step 2

Mix ½ cup of ground cracker crumbs or bread crumbs and ¼ cup of ground flax seed. Mix the crumbs into the salmon mixture until the consistency is thick enough to form patties.

Step 3

If the mixture feels too dry, add reserved salmon liquid, two tablespoons at a time; if too wet add more crumbs. Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, so that the mixture chills and sets.

Step 4

Remove from the refrigerator and roll mixture into balls. Next, flatten into round patties lightly. Coat each patty with bread crumbs.

Step 5

In a skillet, heat olive oil until it sizzles; lower heat and add patties. When the edges of the patties start to turn brown, gently flip and brown the other side two to three minutes.

Step 6

Serve warm with ketchup or top with grated cheese.
