Zesty Salmon Fritters 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes



  • 3 eggs, seperated
  • 1 15-oz can pink salmon, skin and bones removed
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 Tbsp minced parsley
  • vegetable oil


In a medium bowl whisk egg yolks together until light and thickened. Add salmon, flour, salt, pepper, lemon juice, lemon zest, and parsley to bowl and mix to incorporate.

In a separate bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold into the salmon mixture.

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a skillet to 350ºF. Drop in tablespoons of the salmon mixture and fry until golden brown on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side.

Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels. Serve.


Serve these fritters with cocktail sauce or even a lemon aioli.

We opted to use canned salmon for these fritters but you can always use fresh salmon as well.
