Air Fryer Salmon Patties
- 12 oz canned salmon (or 3 125 g cans); drained, mashed, skin and bones removed if desired
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- lemon zested
- 1/2 teaspoon dried dill or 2 teaspoons fresh
- fresh dill
- yogurt or tzatziki
- lemon wedges
- fresh cucumber
First mix ingredients together- in a big bowl, use a spatula to mix together the salmon (drained, mashed, and skin/bones removed if you’d like), eggs, mayo, salt, breadcrumbs, lemon zest and dill.
Then Measure out patties– using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, firmly pack the combination into the cup, then tap it out into the palm of your hand.
After Form patties- pat softly to form a patty that is no more than 1 inch thick and is of equal thickness across the patty.
Cook the patties- heat air fryer to 390 °F. Spray the basket with oil, then add patties into the basket. Spray the tops of the salmon patties.
Cook for a total of eight -8- minutes. Spray a second time 1-2 minutes before the patties are cooked through.
Serve- top the patties with the serving suggestions, and enjoy
Depending on the size of your air fryer you may be able to cook 2-4 patties at a time. If you have a basket air fryer, no need to flip. If you have an oven air fryer, rotate the trays halfway through, and keep a careful eye on them as they may cook through with a slightly different cook time.
