Salmon meatballs are good on pasta, salad, or on their own. Cover them in marinara sauce, sweet and sour, teriyaki, or barbecue. This versatile meal is ready for any flavor pallet.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of Wild Alaskan Salmon burger
  • 1/2 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons dried chives
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • olive oil or butter
  • favorite BBQ sauce
  1. In a large mixing bowl add the defrosted Wild Alaskan Salmon burger, paprika, garlic powder, dried chives, Old Bay, salt, pepper, and Apple Cider Vinegar.
  2. Mix with your hands and chill in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Once chilled, use a melon baller or your hands to roll out balls from the mixture. Place on a sheet man until the entire mixture is all rolled out. Make sure the meatballs are all similar sizes.
  4. Preheat your cast iron and add butter or olive oil so it coats the bottom of the pan.
  5. Place the meatballs into the pan and sear on both sides for about 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. No not crowd the pan, it will loose heat and it will be difficult to get a nice char on the meatballs.
  7. Once all the meatballs are cooked, drain the fat from the cast iron and return the meatballs to the cast iron.
  8. With no heat or very low heat toss the meatballs in your favorite BBQ sauce and serve as a sandwich, on a salad, or on its own.
  9. This recipe is great for many flavors and the seasoning mix can be changed to line up with marinara sauce, teriyaki, or whatever flavor is your favorite.

 

Do you agree that Greek food is pretty flavorful?  We think so, too.  That is why this salmon cake was developed, to capture all those flavors in a little cake.  This cake isn’t heavy and contains a lot of vegetables so it stays really moist.

 

 

You can use these and make a sandwich and add tzatziki sauce…. (you can find a tzatziki recipe here)

 

Or you can serve it on its own as the main event and accompany it with a salad, vegetables, or even with rice.

 

Here is what you need to get started:

1/4 cup chopped red onions
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1/3 cup chopped artichoke hearts
3/4 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped Kalamata olives
2-3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 lb salmon burger meat, thawed and excess water drained

Here is everything seen below.

 

Put all the ingredients in a bowl except for the salmon burger meat.

 

Mix really well.

 

Add the salmon burger and it should look something like this.

 

Form them into patties.  It will probably make about eight 3-ounce patties. Place them on a lined or greased cookie sheet.  Set your oven on high broil.  Broil on the top rack of your oven for 5 minutes and they will be done.  If you made smaller cakes or meatballs it will take about 2-3 minutes to cook.  It is pretty fast.

 

These patties will sure to delight your taste buds.  Serve it with tzatziki sauce and you hit a home run.

 

Here we served it on a bun with the tzatziki sauce and made a cucumber and red onion slaw to give it a little crunch.

 

This for sure will be a crowd pleaser and will impress your friends and family.

 

Bon Appétit!

Blend in the salmon burger (be sure that the excess water has been drained) until just combined.  Form into cakes or balls.  Makes at least 8 cakes.  Bake under the broil setting on the top rack of the oven for 4-5 minutes.  You can also pan fry as well as grill over a BBQ.
