This easy recipe instantly upgrades your canned salmon for a healthy meal packed with Omega 3 and an excellent source of calcium. Kids love this and Moms love this quick dinner favourite that comes together in just 5 minutes!


  • 1 can (170g) wild sockeye salmon, drained
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 1 spring green onions, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro, rough chopped (optional but I love adding this if I have it handy)
  • 1/3 cup of panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 lemon, freshly juiced
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 tsp paprika powder
  • dash of salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, more if needed


  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the extra virgin olive oil together. Mix well.
  2. Divide and form into 4-6 evenly sized patties. I like to use a 1/3 cup measuring cup and pack the ingredients in it.
  3. In a large non-stick fry pan over medium heat, heat oil.
  4. Cook patties until golden brown and crispy. Approximately 3-4 minutes per side.
  5. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Serve and enjoy immediately with a quick squeeze of of lemon juice if desired.


  • I like to use 1/3 cup measuring cup to form my patties and then flatten with a spatula in the fry pan.
  • I do not recommend using canned tuna instead of salmon.
  • We like to use wild caught sustainable wild sockeye salmon that is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified.
