What You’ll Need:

  • 1 lb fresh salmon filet, skin removed
  • ½ t. Garlic powder
  • 1 t. Dried dill
  • ½ t. salt
  • ¼ t. Black Pepper
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced (white and green)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 2 to 3 T. capers, drained
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbsp mayo
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 t. Dried parsley
  • 1 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 lemon, cut in wedges


Step 1:  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2: Lay the salmon on an aluminum foil-lined cookie sheet sprayed with pan release. Mix together the garlic powder, dill, salt, and pepper and sprinkle on the salmon. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until a medium doneness.

Step 3: Remove the salmon from the oven and flake the fish in a mixing bowl using two forks. Add the scallions, red bell pepper, capers, panko, eggs, mayo, Worcestershire sauce, and dried parsley. Form into 4 thicker or 6 thinner patties and place on a sprayed cookie sheet. (I like to line the pan with aluminum foil to make clean-up easy. I also like to chill the patties for an hour to keep them from falling apart but that is not necessary.)

Step 4: Bake the patties for 8 minutes at 400.

Step 5: When plating, drizzle the patties with lemon juice and top with avocado slices. Serve and extra lemon wedge on the side.

Makes 4-6 servings.
