🥘 Ingredients and Substitutes
- Salmon. This recipe is made from canned salmon, but you can also use also salmon leftovers. If you use it from a can, choose one in its own juice.
- Potatoes. I used boiled potatoes, but you could also use some leftover mashed potatoes.
- Cheese. I used parmesan cheese, but you can also use other cheese that you prefer.
- Chili powder. You can replace them with fresh hot peppers or sweet paprika if you’re not a fan of spicy food. Or you could leave it out altogether.
- Butter. You can replace the butter with oil. Or if you use canned salmon, you can also use the oil from the can for an extra taste of salmon.
- Dill. You can throw it away if you don’t like the taste of the dill.
👩🍳 Step-by-step Directions
Take a deep plate and mash potatoes in it using a fork
After that, melt the butter and pour it over the potatoes.
Now, chop the dill finely and put it in the bowl with mashed potatoes. Right after that add an egg, paprika, parmesan, and canned salmon.
Mix the composition well. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
Form the salmon rissoles and fry them in a pan with a little oil.
Quick Note: Be careful when you will flip them because they are very soft and will initially lose their shape a bit. But after you fry them on all four sides, a crust will form that will keep the inside soft.
Fry under the lid on low to medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side.
Serve them next to a fresh, green salad.
🍽️ Serving Suggestions
Serve as a main course. These rissoles make a great main course when served with a simple salad or some steamed vegetables. You could also pair them with a side of roasted potatoes or sweet potato fries for a more hearty meal.
Make a sandwich. Another great way to serve these rissoles is to put them between two slices of crusty bread or a soft bun. Top with some fresh greens, a slice of tomato, and a dollop of mayonnaise or tartar sauce. In that case, consider making the salmon rissoles flatter so it will be easier to eat the sandwich.
Serve as an appetizer. These rissoles make a fantastic appetizer when served with a dipping sauce like aioli or sour cream. You could also cut them into smaller pieces and serve them on toothpicks for a more elegant presentation.
Top a salad. For a lighter meal, you could serve these rissoles on top of a bed of greens or a grain salad. Top with a drizzle of olive oil and some lemon juice for a simple and satisfying meal.
🏆 Expert Tips. What to Pay Attention To?
- Don’t overmix the ingredients. When you’re mixing together the salmon, potatoes, egg, parmesan, dill, butter, and chili flakes, be careful not to overmix the ingredients. You want to keep the mixture light and fluffy so that the rissoles don’t become too dense.
- Use a non-stick pan. To get those perfectly golden and crispy exteriors, use a non-stick pan with a little bit of oil or butter. This will prevent the rissoles from sticking to the pan and will help them cook evenly.
- Shape the rissoles evenly: When you’re shaping the mixture into patties, try to make them as evenly as possible. This will help them cook evenly and will ensure that they’re all ready at the same time.
- Let them rest before cooking. Once you’ve shaped the rissoles, let them rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before cooking. This will help them hold their shape and will prevent them from falling apart in the pan.
- Garnish with fresh dill and lemon juice. When you’re ready to serve, garnish the rissoles with some fresh dill and a squeeze of lemon juice. This will add a bright and zingy finish that really brings out the flavors in the dish.
