Spinach Salmon Patties

Spinach Salmon Patties

These salmon patties are chock-full of flavor and are an exciting alternative to turkey burgers or beef patties.

We like that each patty has a full serving of vegetables. Pickled ginger makes a perfect topping.

How do you turn a piece of salmon into salmon patties? Actually, it’s pretty simple.

We recommend purchasing a piece of skinless salmon, or use this technique to easily remove the skin without losing any of the precious meat.

Then, chop as finely as you can.

When you’ve got the salmon cut into small pieces, rock your knife blade back and forth across the meat several times to get it finer. Egg white helps bind everything together during cooking.
