Ready In:




  • Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for 1/2 hour -(optional, but they handle easier).
  • Make into 4 patties and cook until browned on either side turning once.
  • I make a double batch and freeze part of it in flattened patties in zipper bags, and just thaw in the microwave, then fry.
  • Also good as a sauce on them: mix 1 part blue cheese dressing to 1 part horsy mustard, or Jack Daniels mustard, or some kind of flavored mustard -- it is yummy!

Questions & Replies

  1. What oil do you use for frying them in?
  2. Can i substitute almond or coconut flour for the pork rinds?


  1. Oh these were good!!! I use pork rinds in a lot of things, so was not scared! :) Love that they are low carb and full of flavor. I used a dill mix instead of parsley, everything else just as the recipe states. Came out perfect! My daughter even loved them! They will be a staple in our house!
  2. These are fantastic. They taste better than using breadcrumbs or crackers. You can actually taste the salmon. I add a little extra pork rinds and found that they are easier to patty. I eat these regularly now. Great recipe.
  3. This is probably the first time in my life I have followed a recipe to the T. Absolutely gorgeous looking and tasting. This beautiful brown crunch on the outside from frying them. And the rich salmon flavor with that pop of fresh lemon and some onion and garlic. Just delicious. It was a HUGE hit with everyone. I even took a risk and fried them up without refrigerating them. They held together just beautifully. The sauce I made was blue cheese, mayonaise, lemon juice, and dill. Generous dash of hot sauce on top of that. Served with a lemon wedge. I am so pleased. It took me 10 minutes to do the whole thing start to finish. I will be using this recipe in years to come. It's perfet as is. Thank you!!!
  4. I hardly ever write reviews. Only when something is either really bad, or really good. I'm dieting, lie carb, and I was craving salmon patties. I stumbled across this recipe. I was expecting sub-par "I'll have to settle because I'm dieting" salmon patties. But, WOW! These are delicious. I can hardly tell the difference between these, and the high carb version. I'll be making these often. They're great with a pat of butter and a few drops of lemon on top.
  5. Totally delicious ~ I made 1/2 of the recipe and got 2 very large patties out of mine so the photo I took isn't the prettiest (lol). Thanks for sharing!!


  1. THANK YOU! Finally a salmon cake that holds together, that tastes like salmon instead of breadcrumbs and is a snap to make. Easy peasy and a big hit with my guy. We had them over salad with ranch dressing, tomatoes, avocado. Yummy!!! I let the mixture sit in the refrigerator for an hour or more - no problem. Going to try this recipe next with canned crab. Oh yeah ....


I am diabetic and have been able to quit using insulin by eating a diet extrememly low in carbs. I have also lost 28 lbs and feel great! So I am always on the lookout for recipes that are VERY low in carbs.
