Salmon patties done Irisa style!

Irisa Raina 9


I just love caramelizing hot peppers with butter and the Turbinado sugar. And when you have a strong flavored fish like salmon, this really stands up. You’ll get the heat and then the sweet! YUM~OH.

I served this with my homemade mac & cheese { macaroni and cheese, you betcha! } recipe here on JAP.

If you prefer less heat, leave ½ the veins and seeds in the pepper or remove them completely. And always wash your hands thoroughly after handing hot peppers!!!!

How to Make Salmon patties done Irisa style!


  1. Remove the salmon from the packages and drain, there is a wee bit O liquid, in the package.
  2. While the salmon is draining, get the butter melted in a non-stick pan and add the onions, peppers, celery and sugar. Sauté them on a low heat till the onions start to caramelize.
  3. In a separate bowl beat the egg till it lightens in color, and then add the mayonnaise, add the cooled onion mixture, 1/4 cup Progresso crumbs, salt and pepper. Once this is all incorporated add the salmon and chill for several hours or overnight. The longer this sits the better it gets! When you are ready to fry the patties pull them out 15 minutes before cooking them, to bring them to room temperature.
  4. Form the patties and then in a non- stick frying pan get the butter and oil hot and then fry { on low } till the patties till they are beautiful browned on both sides.
  5. Squeeze some lemon juice over the patties when they are on your plate.
