Packed with protein, salmon is a versatile fish to cook on its own or in a variety of recipes. Making patties from the fish is easy to do with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. All you need is fresh or canned salmon, dill, garlic and an egg. Feel free to add other seasonings too, such as minced onions, parsley or a pinch of red pepper. To cut down on fat, bake the patties in the oven rather than pan-fry them, and serve with a salad to complete this light yet filling meal.
