  • 1.5 pounds Salmon filet skinless, finely diced
  • 1/2 Red bell papers
  • 1/2 Green pepper
  • 3 sprigs Scallions
  • 1/3 cup Parsley
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 Eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp Lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
  • Black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp Canola oil


  • Dice skinless salmon filet and place it in a large bowl.
  • In the food processor combine red and green peppers, scallions and process.
  • Transfer veggies to the bowl with salmon.
  • Add chopped parsley, panko breadcrumbs, old bay, mayonnaise, lemon zest and beaten eggs. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.
  • Refrigerate salmon mixture for up to an hour to help form patties and blend flavors.
  • Form patties. I use a large ice cream scoop to portion my patties. It is about 2 table spoons of mixture per patty.
  • Heat a large non stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil.

  • Cook the patties about 5 minutes on each side, until browned.

  • Alternatively, you can grill salmon patties at 4-6 minute per side.
