Salmon – I’m keeping this recipe very simple and using canned, boneless skinless salmon! It’s so easy and it works well for making patties.
Egg – A couple of large eggs for binding the other ingredients into the patty.
Almond Flour – When you mix this with egg and herbs it creates a wonderful low carb binding that’ll hold the salmon patty together and add flavor.
Green Onion – We add chopped green onion right into the salmon patty mixture for even more flavor!
Herbs – I like to mix in some fresh dill and fresh parsley when making the patties.
Salt & Pepper – You can use more or less of this to taste.
Butter – You’ll need some butter for frying the patties in a skillet!

How To Make Keto Salmon Patties:
Ingredients – We’re going to start with canned salmon to keep things nice and easy. Add that to a mixing bowl along with the rest of the ingredients.
Mix – Stir well to combine all of the salmon patty ingredients and you’re ready to cook! Told you that salmon patties using canned salmon were super easy and quick! 😉
Scoop – I use a medium sized cookie scoop to portion these low carb salmon patties. Once scooped, press the salmon into a patty. This recipe should make about 10 salmon patties.
Fry – Add the patties to a hot skillet with some melted butter and fry them up until golden brown on each side. The salmon is fully cooked already, so we’re just looking to brown the outsides and heat them through. That’ll take about 3 minutes per side.
Your fried salmon patties are ready to devour!
What To Serve With These Easy Salmon Patties:
I like to serve these easy salmon patties with this cucumber tomato feta salad for an easy and refreshing dinner on a hot night.
For dessert, my low carb blackberry cobbler is a winner every time.
This recipe for salmon patties is! Just be sure to grab canned salmon that is pure salmon – no funky stuff added. These easy salmon patties have 2 net carbs per 3 patties.
If you have leftovers, store them tightly covered in the fridge.
To reheat, I recommend baking or air frying them, rather than microwaving. Most fried foods taste better if they’re reheated in the oven or air fryer. Heat at 350 degrees until warmed through.
