*If using cooked salmon:
Cook 1 lb. Salmon filet in the oven at 425 F for 15-20 minutes, or until it flakes easily. Let cool
- For the patties: add the mayo, mustard, lemon zest & juice, chives, capers, parsley ¼ teaspoon salt, and a few cracks of pepper to a large bowl. Add the salmon, and the breadcrumbs or almond flour. Gently mix and let the mixture sit for 15-30 minutes in the fridge to firm up.
- Meanwhile, make the chipotle mayo sauce by adding the ingredients to a bowl, mix well, and check for seasoning. Set aside.
- To cook the patties, preheat a non-stick pan (don’t use stainless or cast iron- they fall apart). Once hot, form the cakes and cook until deep golden brown on each side, about 4-5 minutes per side.
