Lemon Pepper Panko Salmon Patties

Rose Mary Mogan


I was looking for a quick meal idea to make for dinner & this is what I came up with.

They are crispy on the outside from the Panko Bread Crumbs, & moist & tasty on the inside. The no salt added lemon pepper gave them a slight edge in flavor from the lemon seasoning. We loved them.

I usually only use 1 can but chose to use 2 cans on the day I made these in hope of having left overs.

Using the left overs I created Salmon Patty Sandwiches Topped with a Seafood Aioli Sauce, lettuce tomatoes & red onions, & made a Confetti Oil & Vinegar Cole Slaw to go with it. It was all very tasty.
