Recipe- Sweet Potato Salmon Patties- In the Kitchen with Ken

When I would go to visit my Nanaw in Brunswick, Ga., for the summer she would make salmon patties as one of our meals.

I loved these things when I was young, so this week I thought I’d come up with a fresh salmon recipe with a little fall sweet potato taste that I hope you’ll enjoy.

Sweet Potato Salmon Patties

5 oz salmon fillet

1 large sweet potato

3 tablespoons spice rub

1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

½ cup bread crumbs

Extra virgin olive oil


Fresh chopped dill

Fresh chopped green onions


1 tablespoon dry mustard

½ tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper

½ teaspoon white pepper

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon black pepper

½ teaspoon coriander

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons minced onions

Place your salmon filet on a piece of aluminum foil and coat with spice rub.

Place two tablespoons of butter on the sides of the fillet.

Fold the salmon up in the foil until it is sealed well.

Place in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, remove and let cool.

Once the salmon has cooled, remove skin and dice.

Wrap sweet potato in aluminum foil and cook for 90 minutes at 425 degrees or until soft.

Remove skin and mix salmon, bread crumbs and spice rub in a bowl until you have a thick paste.

Place the mixture in the refrigerator for an hour or more to allow flavors to mix and the mixture to thicken.

Make four patties out of the mixture and set aside.

In a bowl, add your Panko Bread Crumbs; dredge each patty in the Panko until coated well.

In a skillet, add extra virgin olive oil on medium-high heat.

Drop the patties into the skillet and cook until crisp on both sides.

Garnish with chopped green onions and fresh dill.

Serve hot.
