Salmon Patty Salad: Healthy, Quick & Easy Recipe

Today’s blog will be covering one of my favorite recipes that I make for my family regularly; Salmon Patty Salad! It is one of the most affordable, healthy and delicious meals that I make, so I thought I would share it with you!  Here’s what you’ll need:

Salmon Patty Salad Ingredients:

ingredients for salmon patty salad

  • 1 can of Alaskan Pink Salmon
  • 1 Egg (Accidentally put two in the picture)
  • 1/4 Onion
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • One Tomato
  • Cilantro
  • Cheddar Cheese (Or Cheese of Choice)
  • Lettuce or Fresh Spinach
  • Oregano
  • Mixed up Salt or Salt and Pepper
  • Dressing of Choice, I like Italian or Balsamic for this
  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
  • Croutons
  • Olive oil/Pam Olive Oil Spray


How To Make a Salmon Patty:

  • First, open and drain your can of salmon. Put it in a bowl big enough for mixing.
  • Next, I dice my onions. You can use as many or as few onions as you like, but I find that about 1/4 of the onion is a good amount.
  • Add your onions into your bowl with the salmon. Add your egg and 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs.
  • Next, you’ll add your seasoning. You can use whatever seasoning suits your pallet but I find that oregano and salt and pepper mix works well. I add about 1 tablespoon of oregano and 1-2 teaspoons of salt and pepper mix, but season to taste.
  • Now, you’ll mix it all together. I typically just use my hands to really get it mixed well. You’ll need to use your hands to form them into patties anyway, so just go ahead and get dirty!


  • I like to prep my salads before I make my salmon patty, so that as soon as they’re done, I can toss them on top of the salad, hot, and serve! I dice up my lettuce or lay out my fresh spinach leaves, cut half of an avocado in small sections, dice my tomato, pull my cilantro, spread cheese to my preferred amount, and add croutons. You can add the dressing before or after you put your salmon patty on, but it doesn’t really matter either way, as it typically all ends up mixed together in the end.
  • Once you have thoroughly mixed your patties together, get your pan on the stove. I like to have my heat up to 6 or 7.
  • Form 4 patties out of the mixture and flatten as much as possible. put on heat for about 4 minutes on each side, checking occasionally, until browned and crispy.


  • Once your salmon patty is done cooking (one batch usually makes 6 for me), throw one or two on top of your salad, depending on how hungry you are, or how big you made your salmon patty.
  • Finally, you’re ready to eat!
