These are healthy, delicious, and a real crowd-pleaser, even folks who say they don't like salmon say they love these. You can add a slice of avocado to jazz them up too.

Transfer the salmon mixture to a large bowl and add the Panko crumbs, parsley, onion, ginger, molasses, egg yolk, garlic, salt, and pepper. With a spatula, mix to fully combine. Shape the mixture into 6 to 8 patties.

Place the salmon patties on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours. (This is an important step.)

Grill the patties on heavy-duty foil, on a well sprayed/oiled flat grill, or in a large nonstick skillet for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. You do not want to overcook these. The insides of the patties should be slightly pink.
