This recipe has been altered and tweaked with each batch until I felt it couldn’t suit us any better. I used to remove the bones and skin, which was time consuming, but found after smashing everything the bones are not noticed and the skin adds flavor! This is quick and easy and flavorful enough for the toddler in my house. Grilling these salmon patties is a healthy alternative to beef burgers. Serve alone, on a bun, or on a bed of fresh greens.
- ¼ cup cracker crumbs
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- 1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
- ¼ cup honey mustard
Combine cracker crumbs, egg, lemon juice, hot sauce, mustard, and paprika in a bowl; add salmon, stirring well. Allow the mix to stand for at least 5 minutes so that the flavors can join hands.
Preheat a grill to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a grill pan with foil.
Squeeze excess liquid from the mixture; this will allow the patties to hold together and turn that pretty golden brown. Form into patties.
Cook on the preheated grill until golden brown and fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes on each side. Serve with honey mustard.
