Slammin' Southwestern Salmon Patties or Salmon Cakes

"I was hungry for salmon patties, wanted something fresh tasting and healthy. Was also hungry for cilantro. This is what I came up with, it will be my only way to cook canned salmon from now on...hope you enjoy! *Note: the amounts for onion, peppers and herbs are approximate. I typically use more of all and especially more sriracha...use your discretion!"

    We love salmon patties and really enjoyed this SW uptake. Served them on rolls with chipolte mayo. YUM! I had a little trouble getting them to hold together so I might do a combo of oats and crackers next time. Thanks for posting!

    Great salmon patties. Served with Southwest sweet potato latkes.

    These were yummy! I've always added crushed crachers and never would have thought to use oats.

    This is a great recipe, and very easy to make. I added a little more sriracha, and the heat was just right. The patties held together and everyone loved them!


I love food. I love my family. I love my animals. I love life. I really enjoy simple but special recipes. My "kids" (2 "big dogs" and a cat) usually are my taste testers...(not to mention disposals)... I look forward to having some human responses to my creations.....More than that, I hope you enjoy and find some happiness in all of them. I've enjoyed creating/collecting, it is my priviledge to share with my Zaar friends! Favorite cookbook? Of my 500 or so, I must say Sid Goldstein's "The Wine Lover's Cookbook" takes top rank. Decadent, but absolutely amazing food, and pairs everything up with the appropriate wine to boot! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
