SERVES: 2 PREP TIME: 10 mins COOK TIME: 10 mins


  • 2 fillets of fresh salmon skin off, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or linseeds
  • ½ cup spring onions, loosely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh coriander or dill, loosely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh parsley or basil, loosely chopped
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 long red chilli
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Place all the ingredients, apart the olive oil, into a food processer and blend until well combined.
  2. Form into patties (size of your choice – they can be balls or flattened into patties).
  3. Warm the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the patties on both sides until golden.
  4. Place the patties on kitchen paper to soak up any excess oil; serve hot or cold.

Inspiration and top tips

  • The patties can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 8 weeks
  • These are great lunch box treats or just on their own straight from the pan
  • Have fun using your own favourite herbs and spices; adding spinach makes for colourful, extra nutritious patties
