It’s salmon day again. I absolutely love salmon, I guess you can tell already. I should really make an effort to cook fish a lot more often than I do, and when it does happen, I inevitably go for salmon.
Nothing wrong with that, but I really want to offer a more varied meal to my little ones, and we all know how easy it is to fall in the trap of cooking the favourite dishes over and over again.
Patties are always the winner whenever I make them. From Mashed Potato Tuna Patties, to Chickpea Potato Broccoli Patties, and now these lovely baked salmon patties, it’s really hard to choose which are the most delicious ones.
Well, since these crispy salmon patties are baked, they are by far the winners when it comes to healthier choices. You need a super tiny amount of oil, spray oil being the best, and you baked them for about 30 minutes, and that’s it.
No horrible smell in the whole house from frying, no alarms going off because of the smoke, plus you know they are yummy and good for you, so win win no matter what. So, how to make these pretty little things crispy on the outside and deliciously soft in the inside?
HOW TO MAKE BAKED SALMON PATTIES
The process itself is dead simple, and if you organise yourself, you can get the job done fairly quickly. First, bake the salmon, and boil the potatoes, preferably in their skin.
When the potatoes are boiled in their skin, the mash is not as soft, you need a rougher texture for the patties.Still better to refrigerate the patties for at least 30 minutes to firm up before coating them in breadcrumbs.
I used fresh salmon, but canned salmon is always fine to be used, in which case you only need to worry about the mash. I don’t recommend an instant mash for this recipe, it’s nowhere near as good texture wise as the good old boiled potato.
Once the salmon is cooked and the mash is ready, mix them together with chopped spring onions, dill, egg, lemon juice and seasoning, and shape into patties, you should get about 9 or 10. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to firm up, then coat in flour, beaten egg, breadcrumbs, and then they are ready to be baked.
HOW LONG TO BAKE SALMON PATTIES AT 200 DEGREES Celsius (400 Fahrenheit)
Now, with the temperature, l set the oven at 200 degrees Celsius (about 400 degrees Fahrenheit), and the patties needed 30 minutes in the oven. Ovens are different, so the patties might need longer or less, just keep an eye on them for about 25 minutes.
I also found that there is no need to turn them on the other side while baking, you get a lovely nice colour all around anyway. I like serving them with a nice salad on the side, and a squeeze of lemon juice, for extra freshness. So yummy!
