Salmon Patties with Red Bell Pepper and Green Onion
Few foods in this world make me as giddy as salmon patties (or salmon burgers, if you prefer). Seriously, if I know I’ll be making them for dinner, it casts a glow over my entire day. They’re delicious, sit easily on your stomach, and go with a wide variety of sides.
While I often change up the ingredients, the basic principle and technique is the same. Because I have to eat gluten-free, I use gluten-free dried breadcrumbs or panko. If you don’t have to eat gluten-free, use the breadcrumbs of your choice. Kroger has their own wonderful brand of gluten-free breadcrumbs – they even have a gluten-free Italian blend that’s outstanding for meatballs!
Some of my favorite options to add to my salmon patties:
- green onion
- red bell pepper
- diced celery
- sweet onion
- green bell pepper
- chopped sage
Choosing a combination of any of the above is outrageously good, but my personal favorite combinations are (1) diced celery and shallots and (2) red bell pepper and green onion.
The recipe below calls for red bell pepper and green onion, but (obviously) use whatever you prefer or whatever you have on hand.
