Salmon Patties with Dill Sauce


Salmon patties and dill sauce are a great combination. They're so simple to make and so good! Everyone always asks me for the recipe.

Salmon Patties:

  • 1 (5 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked

  • ½ cup dry bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons minced onion

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

Dill Sauce:

  • ¼ cup light sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon dill weed

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • sea salt to taste


  1. Make the patties: Mix salmon, bread crumbs, onion, Dijon, egg, and lemon juice together in a bowl. Form into two patties.

  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and season with salt and pepper; cook until lightly browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Mix sour cream, dill, garlic powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  4. Flip patties, season again with salt and pepper, and continue to cook until the other side is lightly browned, about 4 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Serve with sauce.


We make our own bread crumbs with the food processor and whole wheat bread. I usually double the dill sauce and refrigerate any leftovers to cut down on prep time for the next round.
