Ingredients

Ingredients

    • 600800 g (21-28 oz) salmon scraps or 200 g (7 oz) boneless salmon fillet (cooked)
    • 3 tbsp chopped scallions
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp paprika
    • 1/2 cup celery leaves (finely chopped)
    • 23 tbsp breadcrumbs
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tsp lemon zest
    • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
    • pinch of nutmeg
    • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
    • 1/2 tsp of sea salt
    • sprinkling of freshly cracked pepper

Instructions

With scraps:
  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F.
  2. Put salmon trimmings into a casserole dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes or until fish is cooked.
  4. When fish is cooked, remove from oven and let cool.
  5. When cool enough to handle, carefully remove the meat from the bones.  Be watchful for the stray fish bone.  Discard skin and bones.  Keep any oil for frying later.
  6. Combine salmon meat with chopped scallions, garlic powder, paprika, chopped celery leaves, breadcrumbs, egg, lemon zest, ginger powder, a pinch of nutmeg,  Dijon, salt and a sprinkling of black pepper.  Mix until thoroughly combined and refrigerate until ready to fry.
  7. When ready to fry, add a drizzle of oil to a frying pan on medium/medium high heat.
  8. Using your hands, form mixture into patties and place in the hot frying pan.
  9. Cook until golden brown on both sides (should be 5-7 minutes on each side).  Try not to flip the salmon patties more than once as they can easily fall apart.
  10. When golden brown on both sides, remove from heat and serve with your favorite sauce.
