FAQ’s for healthy tinned salmon patties recipe

Can I use fresh salmon instead of tinned salmon?

Yes, you can substitute fresh salmon for tinned salmon. Cook the fresh salmon fillets and flake them into the mixture as you would with tinned salmon.

How long do these salmon patties last in the fridge?

Once cooked, store the patties in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them in a frying pan or oven before serving.

Can I freeze these salmon patties?

Yes, you can freeze the uncooked patties. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until firm. Transfer them to a freezer bag or container, separating each patty with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Cook from frozen, adding a few extra minutes to the cooking time.

Yes, this recipe is gluten-free if you use certified gluten-free oats or breadcrumbs, or omit them altogether.

Can I make these salmon patties ahead of time?

What can I use instead of mushrooms if I don’t like them?

If you prefer not to use mushrooms, you can substitute them with finely chopped zucchini, bell peppers, or even grated carrot for added texture.

How can I make these salmon patties spicier?

Add chopped chillies or a pinch of cayenne pepper to the mixture to increase the spiciness according to your taste.

Can I bake these salmon patties instead of frying them?
