This is such an easy recipe that I can throw together super fast at the end of a long, hard day. It packs a punch of flavor with very little effort. My kids love this and request it often. Sometimes, I even make a few extra to go in their lunch boxes the next day.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat sesame oil in skillet over medium heat until it bubbles around the tip of a spoon when dipped in.

  • Mix salmon, eggs, panko, bell pepper, green onions, ginger, soy sauce, sesame seeds, and five-spice powder together in a bowl. Form mixture into patties and set, evenly spaced, into the hot oil in the skillet.

  • Brown patties, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and brown on the other side, 4 to 5 minutes more. Remove patties from pan and drain on a paper-towel lined plate to drain excess oil.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to replace the green bell pepper and green onion with whatever pepper or onion you have on hand but don't skip the ginger and 5-spice powder. It really makes a difference.

This was simple and really tasty minus the Chinese five-spice powder. Like all menus, I tweaked it and will make it again in the near future. Read More

6.24.18 Good but a bit of a disappointment because I was looking for more Asian flavor. They pretty much tasted like the salmon patties that I just throw together and have been making for years so not a total disappointment. If I were to make again I d probably increase those Asian ingredients the five-spice powder soy sauce and ginger root. There was an empty plate at the end of the meal! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
