  • 1 16 ounce can salmon drained and flaked
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • ¼ cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 pinch dried basil


  1. Mix up the salmon, eggs, parsley, onion, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of basil, and red pepper flakes in a mixing bowl. Roll that mix into 6 patties. You want them to be about 1/2 inch thick and firmly packed.

  2. Heat up the veggie oil in a big skillet on medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the patties to the skillet and cook for 4 minutes. Flip 'em over and cook for another 4 minutes. You want a nice brown color on both sides. Serve on their own or between your favorite buns.

  3. To make the dressing, mix the mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and a pinch of basil together in a small bowl. Place a dollop of dressing on the patties.
