2. Salmon patties

With only two steps and six ingredients, these versatile salmon patties are perfect for a quick and easy dinner, a delightful lunch, or a flavorful savory snack. Enjoy them hot or cold, paired with your favorite salad or steamed veggies, or use them as a filling for sandwiches, burgers, pitas, or wraps. Finely chopped gherkins and thinly sliced green onions add a zesty kick, making these patties a hit with both kids and adults. This recipe is an excellent way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. If you don’t have any, simply make a fresh batch and let it cool before mixing it into the patties. We use one cup in this recipe, but you can serve any extra mash on the side. Additionally, you can substitute tinned tuna for salmon if needed. If you’re a salmon lover, try our air fryer salmon fish cakes, crispy Japanese sushi salmon patties, or explore other creative dinners using canned salmon to add variety to your meal planning.
