  • Wash and cook rice using herbs (rosemary, thyme and basil) in the three cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the flame and let the rice cook thoroughly. Fluff it and allow to cool.
  • In a mixing bowl, add salmon and flake it. Then add rice and the rest of the ingredients. Mix thoroughly and make patties.
  • Line the patties on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. If you don't have parchment paper on hand, just grease the baking tray and line the patties.
  • Bake at 350F for 10 minutes on each side. While flipping the patties, take care not to break them.
  • Serve with herbs mixed in extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil for higher nutrition. You can also serve with marinara sauce. We like Rao's marinara sauce. 
  • Makes about 20 patties. Seal and refrigerate for about a week max.
  • Instead of rice, use sweet potato for a complete paleo style salmon patties.
  • Use cooked quinoa instead of rice for more protein punch.
