One of the things I love about making these salmon patties is that you end up with something that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Salmon patties can be served along a green salad, cooked veggies, eaten plain or even use a bun or tortilla for a delicious sandwich.

A good place to start is cooking frozen salmon patties at 375 for 10 minutes then adding time in 3 minute intervals until desired level of doneness is reached.

To make these salmon patties compliant with the Whole30 program, use almond flour instead of breadcrumbs. Make sure you read your labels on whatever seasoning you choose to use.
