Wild Salmon, Chick Pea and Mint Patties


The cilantro dip really adds a lot to these tasty treats.


Prep time 30 minutes

Serves 6


2 cans (7.5 oz. each) traditional bone-in Wild Red Salmon or 2 cans Wild Red skinless, boneless salmon, drained and chunked

2 cups canned chick peas or cannelloni beans, rinsed and drained

1 small red onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 teaspoons medium curry powder

1 medium red chili pepper, deseeded and minced

Handful of fresh mint leaves

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

1/2 teaspoon organic cayenne pepper
Sea salt and organic black pepper
All-purpose flour, for dusting

Organic extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil, for frying


Cilantro dip

1 cup plain low-fat yogurt 

2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


  • Place salmon in blender; add chick peas or cannelloni beans, onion, garlic, curry powder, chili pepper, mint, cumin seeds, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Blend together for a few seconds, but do not over-blend.

  • Shape mixture into 18 balls; flatten them into patties. Dust lightly with flour.
