6 patties


  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 (7.5 ounce) can salmon, drained

  • 1 cup mashed canned sweet potato

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour, or more as needed

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed


  1. Stir egg, melted butter, ginger, salt, turmeric, and coriander together in a small bowl.

  2. Flake salmon into a wide bowl. Mix in sweet potato. Stir in egg mixture. Add flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring after each addition. Add 1 extra tablespoon flour if mixture is still too wet. Form into 6 patties.

Cook's Note:

You can use 8 ounces of fresh, cooked salmon instead of canned, if preferred.
