Air Fryer Salmon Patties

Air Fryer Salmon Patties


Air Fryer Salmon Patties are the classic version of salmon patties that are cooked in an air fryer for a healthy version with no cooking oil.



Salmon Patties:

  • 114.75 ounce can of pink salmon – bones removed
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup unflavored panko
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper (optional)
  • 2 TBS + 1 teaspoon mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 11/2 TBS extra virgin olive oil

Dill Dip:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 TBS + 1 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasoning Salt
  • 2 TBS dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Mix all of the dip ingredients together and refrigerate until salmon patties are ready to serve.
  2. Remove the bones from the canned salmon (this will take you about 10 minutes; you’ll want to go slowly to ensure you’ve discarded all of them).
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, using your hands, mix together the salmon, egg, panko and other salmon patty ingredients, with the exception of the olive oil.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop, make equal-sized balls of the salmon patties.
  5. Place the balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  6. Smash the balls slightly with the palm of your hand. They should be uniform in size.
  7. Brush both sides of the salmon patties with the olive oil.
  8. Place an air fryer parchment sheet into your air fryer.
  9. Working in batches of 3-4 add salmon patties and cook on 400° for 7 minutes, carefully flipping them at 3.5 minutes (half way).
  10. Serve with apple cider vinegar or dill dip or both.
