Fresh Salmon Patties Tips
Can you use other types of salmon to make patties?
You can use various types of salmon to make this salmon recipe
, from wild-caught chinook or sockeye salmon to farmed Atlantic salmon. In a pinch, you can also use canned or precooked salmon in a pouch to make patties.
Can you use different types of bread crumbs to make salmon patties?
We like using panko bread crumbs
for fresh salmon patties because their coarse texture creates a fantastically crispy exterior as the patties bake. You can substitute different types of bread crumbs, such as seasoned bread crumbs from the grocery store or gluten-free substitutes for bread crumbs
to accommodate those with wheat allergies. However, keep in mind that the texture of the finished dish may not be the same as the original recipe when making such substitutions.
How can you keep fresh salmon patties from falling apart?
Fresh salmon patties will not fall apart if they have the appropriate level of binding agents. In this recipe, we use mayonnaise and bread crumbs to hold the mixture together, but some recipes call for eggs instead of mayonnaise. If you’re substituting canned salmon, be sure to drain the cooked salmon of excess moisture before forming the patties.
How long will leftover salmon patties last?
Leftover salmon patties are good for up to 3 days. Store the patties in a single layer in an airtight container. If you need to stack the patties, separate each layer with a piece of parchment or waxed paper. Salmon patties also freeze well when wrapped individually in plastic wrap and stored in a freezer-safe bag.—Lindsay Mattison, Taste of Home Contributing Writer
