I had a couple of pouches of salmon so I decided to figure out a tasty way to use it.

The result is delicious - the salmon is creamy, very flavorful, easy for a post op at any stage to eat.

The dish is also high protein, low carb, fast, and simple too. This is a perfect meal for your entire family!


  • One 7 ounce pouch or can of Salmon (very good quality, no skin or bones, nice product!)
  • 2 tablespoons Hellman's Light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon beaten egg - blend egg first, then measure
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion or scallion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay or favorite cajun or seasoning blend
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Mash together the salmon with the mayonnaise, egg, onion, and Old Bay.
  • Using a spoon, roughly divide the mixture and form into 4 slightly flattened 'meatballs'.
  • Place on a plate in the refrigerator to firm while you make your salad to complete your meal.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet with olive oil over medium high heat and saute the salmon patties until golden brown on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to plates and serve immediately with fresh greens or bagged salad mix as a side dish.

As a tip, our delicious Remoulade sauce from this easy Shrimp Cocktail recipe will pair beautifully with these patties if you have the ingredients on hand.
