Mexican Salmon Patties

Happy Cinco de Mayo! 

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican army's victory over the invading French army in 1862. One way to celebrate? With food, of course!

I had planned on making salmon patties for dinner, so instead of my usual ingredients, I added some flavors of Mexican influence and here you go... Mexican Salmon Patties! The only thing that was missing was a margarita!

Mexican Salmon Patties

1 can salmon, drained
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp lime juice
1/2 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded, and finely diced
1 rib celery, finely diced
1 T finely chopped cilantro
4 green onions, finely chopped
3 T crumbled Queso Fresco
3 T bread crumbs
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Shape into patties. Cover and refrigerate at least an hour.

Oil for frying
1 egg, beaten
Panko bread crumbs

Dip each patty into the egg. Roll in Panko bread crumbs. Fry at 350F until browned on both sides.

Serve with rice and garnish with sliced avocado, lime wedges, and crumbled Queso Fresco

Makes 4 12-oz. patties


  1. I absolutely love your salmon patties & we make them all the time! Looks delicious this way too, especially with the avocado on the side. Yummy!

  2. Love this idea Karen, you're brillant! I'm going to try salmon patties this way next time I make them.

  3. Sounds and looks very good!

  4. Great idea Karen. I'm getting ready to post a salmon patty recipe. Your photo is TIMES better than mine. Note to self; angel that salmon patty more. Great photo.

  5. What a fabulous idea! We love salmon patties, but always do them the same old way. These look scrumptious and I'm loving the beautiful sides. Excellent photos as always, Karen.

  6. OH MY... And Jackie was just asking for Salmon cakes... I am on a ridiculous diet right now, but with just a couple of small tweeks, this fits into my diet food. Will be making this this weekend!


  7. For all the salmon cake lovers out there-this rocks!

  8. I have salmon...what size can do I need?
    (I kept wondering why you hadn't gotten back to me about I see I didn't comment. I just have must thought I commented)
    Salmon patties on the grill! (we have a side burner) since I have no stove at the moment.

  9. I'm doing a variation of these tonight!! We need 2 cans for our family of 5 so I added an egg, upped the sour cream, and improvised with the rest. I only put 2 green onions but about 1/2 cup cilantro, 1/2 cup feta(no queso cheese here, it goes fast!), a whole jalepeno, a couple shakes of cumin and oregano, garlic and onion powders. It smells heavenly!

  10. This is looking very appetizing !!

  11. This recipe is a must try for sure. I love salmon and you definitely have a good way with it! Never even thought of Mexican salmon! YUM!!!

  12. Oh! Karen, I can skip the salmon and will be more that happy with that good looking rice and avocado topped with the cheese. For me that is a great meal.

    I does so close to home for me. :)


  13. I like this twist on the salmon patty! That is funny about seeing the commercial! I have not even seen it on TV yet, we keep missing it. But what fun making it!

  14. These are some tasty sounding salmon patties!

  15. Hi Karen,
    To answer your question about the market, I do have a set schedule that people can sign up online or in person on I cannot serve to the general public, they have to sign up and pay, or show up and pay to eat any food. This weekend I will be trying 30 minute classes each hour on the hour and see if anyone pops in. The theme on Saturday will be strawberries. Let's hope it works!

  16. Great idea for any day and I'm thinking to add that margarita!


  17. Wow! They look delicious...I love Mexican flavors and salmon!

  18. Good night!
    I liked you! Seems like a nice person :):). I liked the recipe and the blog
    Kiss and good week

  19. Love the crispy color of the patty and with salmon .. yummyy! delicious ..

  20. I have some leftover salmon from last night's dinner and can't wait to try this. I love your Mexican take on one of our favorite meals.

  21. Karen, just saw your comment on my blog! My family LOVED them!! The fish takes to the cumin quite nicely. The kids are so funny, they cheer when I make salmon patties, lol, so these will be on the menu often! Thanks!!!
