Makes 4 patties. Each patty = 200 cal. I eat 2 patties per serving for a luscious 400 calorie meal with 42g protein, 18g fat and 0g carbohydrates. Actually I had about 1.5 cups of steamed zuchini with this which only added 40 cals and 5 carbs to the final calorie count.
A can of salmon
1 egg white (I used jumbo size)
1 Tbsp plain 0% fat greek yogurt
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 clove of garlic (I always use fresh using a press)
1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill (from da garden)
Salt and pepper to taste
First, dont forget to locate and remove the bones from the salmon after opening the can. At least get the spine, if you leave a few small bones you might not even notice but I try and get them all. Once that is done, just mix everything together and separate into 4 equal parts to form patties. Heat your frying pan to low/medium, use cooking spray vs oil and fry for about 4 mins on each side.
As you can see from the picture I served this with some siracha mayo for my table partner. You can get carried away with all kinds of remoulade sauces and what not, but I personally left that out to keep this one more macro friendly. Salmon contains some significant fat content on its own, which is why I stuck with egg white and 0% fat yogurt, vs whole egss, yolks, mayo etc as in some traditional fish cake recipies. I think the use of dill, the tart acidity of the mustard with the creamy yogurt made this recipe taste great without the added calories. Try it for yourself.
If you have any favorite low calorie sauces you already love that you think may make this recipe taste even better, comment and let me know. I have a few favorites but I’m curious to see what others would use to top these already luscious salmon patties.
