    Thank you Dr. Axe, for this healthy recipe, will surely try it. I was wondering if you could suggest also a simple healthy sauce to go with these salmon patties. Thanks

    Just made these and they are delicious! I used oats instead of bread crumbs and added himalayan pink salt and a few other seasonings. Even our 4 year old loved them! For a sauce I mixed organic mayo, organic ketchup and chopped pickles.

    I have a family member who has lupus and is very sick. Do you see patients in Nashville? Do you have info on treatment? Nancy P

    For Nancy Pettross – I know of an excellent nutritionist and homeopathic doctor in Franklin. I see him myself. If you reply to this I would love to share his name and number!

    Is it ok healthwise to eat salmon patties 2 or 3 times a week if I wanted??? Or do I need to be worried about too much mercury ?? Thanks….

    I am recuperating from emergency gall bladder surgery (it’s been a week) and am looking forward to eating my wild caught canned salmon again! I love salmon patties and will definitely tweak this one a bit. I’m watching my fat intake very carefully during recovery. I’d like to add that I didnt fit the profile for gallbladder disease at all! My bloodwork was perfect and I’m 70

    Milled flax seed with a little water works for me instead of eggs. Also, chia seed with a little water. I also squirt some dill pickle relish in mine. I dredge them in cornmeal or panko crumbs before frying.

    I made these for supper and they were yummy, yummy! Even my son Giovanni, who does not like fish, ate three!! I used processed instant oats instead of the crackers.

    We don’t have Mary’s Gone Crackers in Australia as far as I know, so would you mind telling what they are made of please? We have to do a gluten free version. Thanks!

    being from the south but, growing up in the Chesapeake bay area I love any seafood I make salmon cakes like crab cakes same as this except use salmon, a little mayonnaise and pinch of mustard and of course a lot of old bay seasoning I have also baked instead frying them which I like better have a friend with shell fish allergy and she said it provides a good “crab cake” that she really missed having

  11. Mark Clulow (Brit in China) on

    Thanks Doc and thanks to everyone for the feedback and tips. I’ll try these tonight – I’ll substitute the crackers for oats as that’s what I have access too :)

    Please keep up the great work!

    I absolutely love this recipe. I’ve made it twice but sometimes I feel guilty because I was diagnosed with lupus and I’ve read many articles about animal proteins being bad for lupus. It is said that leaky gut is the problem as the animal proteins are then attacked by the immune system? What are your thoughts on that Dr. Axe? I’m currently not on meds and trying to keep it that way. I’ve watched all your videos! Thanks for the awesome recipes…

  13. Lily Green on

    How much is 1/4 box of crackers? If I use oatmeal instead of crackers as some of the commenters have suggested, how much would I use? If anyone can offer me some advice I would appreciated it. Thank you!

  14. Diane on

    I have made salmon croquettes using almond meal where previously i had coated them with cornmeal. Does pan frying the patty change the almond meal to an unhealthy fat? We much preferred the taste to the more traditional cornmeal crust. ( I always add celery seed.) Thanks in advance for the info on the health of using almond meal.

    I heard of a product Marine Collagen Peptides-the container says its made from Tilapia- Does that mean its not good? It says Non GMO-No preservatives
