Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Quick and Easy Salmon Patties
(213 calories | 5 3 3 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
I made these quick easy salmon patties for dinner recently. They were a hit.
I really like salmon cakes/patties, but I never make them the same way twice. This recipe for quick easy salmon patties is adapted from the Good Housekeeping The Supermarket Diet Cookbook , a recent Goodwill find with several items already flagged to try.
Skinny on Quick Easy Salmon Patties
I modified the recipe slightly to accommodate what I had on hand. The original recipe called for horseradish sauce. I only had prepared horseradish. So, I made my own 'horseradish sauce' by combining 1 tablespoon of it with 3 tablespoons of light mayonnaise, which seemed to work fine.
Served with frozen potato wedges I heated up in the toaster oven and coleslaw, it was a quick, easy, healthy, satisfying dinner that came together in less than 30 minutes.
The consistency of these salmon patties is quite soft, not firm like salmon burgers. So if soft salmon patties are a turn-off, these probably aren't for you.
According to my calculations, each patty has just 213 calories and:

Salmon Patties Recipe Notes
You could make these patties several hours, or a day, ahead and then place them on a plate, covered with plastic and refrigerated until ready to cook. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer so they heat through.

Quick & Easy Salmon Patties

- ¼ cup plain dried breadcrumbs (gluten-free, if necessary)
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- In a medium bowl, stir together the salmon, green onion, celery, horseradish sauce and bread crumbs.
