Salmon/Tuna Patties With Dill Sauce

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by CarrolJ

I love good salmon. Whenever I cook fresh or frozen salmon I always make an extra fillet or two. You can also make this with a good quality canned salmon such as Alaska Red Sockeye...which I think is the very best canned salmon. This recipe is just as good cold leftovers the next day as it is hot. NOTE** you can substitute a different kind of cooked fillet for the tuna if you wish or even just use 2 filllets of salmon.

Loved these great fish cakes! I made half the recipe using 1 foil pouch of salmon and 1 foil pouch of tuna and that worked out perfectly. I don't care for raw onion so left it out. I cooked the patties over medium heat 5 minutes on each side and they got a nice crispy crust and were hot and tender inside. The dill topping is a great touch too. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Flake the salmon and tuna fillets and mix together.
  2. Add the finely grated carrot, salt, pepper, parsley, eggs, red bell pepper, celery, and onion to the fish.
  3. Blend well set aside.
  4. In a small bowl blend the sour cream, mayonnaise, dill weed and refrigerate while cooking the patties.
  5. Put the olive oil in a heated skillet over medium heat.
  6. Using a large ice cream scoop, place mounds of fish mixture into the pan.
  7. Using the back of the ice cream scoop gently flatten down the mounds to form patties about 1/2 inch thick.
  8. Cook patty for 4-5 minutes before gently flipping to the other side.
  9. When you flip the patty it should be golden brown.
  10. HINT***If you only flip the patties once they will hold nicely together since the egg will help to hold the ingredients together when cooking on the first side.
  11. Top each patty with a dollop of dill sauce and enjoy!
