Healthy and delicious baked salmon fritters

This version skips the oil-heavy frying that fish patties usually call for.

These salmon patties are super easy to whip up and since everything is baked on one tray they require minimal cleaning, which is a bonus!

One piece of fresh salmon goes a long way here, making this a very affordable and easy meal for 2-3 people. This version skips the oil-heavy frying that fish patties usually call for – so you can fill up more on dessert later!

Serve them up with a hearty helping of veggies or a salad and some oven-roasted potato wedges. Yum!

  • 1 egg, beaten

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Pop your salmon on one of the lined baking trays and bake for just 15 minutes.
    Leave the salmon to cool just a little then flake it into a bowl.
  2. Mix in the egg, red onion, 100 g of the almond meal and the dill. Season with salt and pepper. Form the mixture into 8 small patties, then roll the patties in the last of the almond meal. Place them on the other lined baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and pop them into the oven to bake for 10 minutes. Serve with steamed veggies or a fresh salad and oven-roasted potato wedges.
