Looking for creative ways to get more omega-3 goodness into your toddler’s tummy? Salmon patties are an easy way to encourage both fish lovers and picky eaters to get more body and mind with healthy fish. We feature canned salmon in this particular fish cake recipe but you can also use cooked fresh salmon as well.


One 7.5 oz can of red salmon, drained
2 slices of whole wheat bread with crust removed
2 tbsp flour
2 scallions, finely chopped
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp mayo
Canola oil for frying
Salt & Pepper to taste


If using fresh salmon, remove the bones and skin and flake. Run the bread through the food processor and make into fine crumbs. Combine the flaked salmon, crumbs, scallions, ketchup, and lemon juice in a bowl and toss.  Add mayo, salt and pepper, and mix until creamy smooth.

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Form small patties of salmon mixture and then dredge through flour. Fry in the oil for 4-5 min, turning occasionally. Drain on a paper towel before serving.

Serve with a little ketchup or mayo for dipping!
