Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray lightly with oil.
If using canned sockeye salmon, drain thoroughly. If using fresh salmon, flake with two forks.
Add all salmon patty ingredients to a large bowl and stir to combine.
Using a quarter cup measure, form patties about ¾ inch thick and 2 ½ inches in diameter.
Place on the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes, flipping the patties over half way through baking time.
Alternatively, fry in hot oil in a skillet, about 5 - 7 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towel to remove excess oil.
Creamy Lime Yogurt Sauce
Stir together all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Garnish with fresh dill or chives, if desired. Serve with salmon patties as a sauce to spoon on top of patties.
This recipe makes 12 patties, ¼ cup each, about 2.5 inches in diameter. Make smaller one-inch patties for appetizer servings and serve with sauce for dipping.Chilling the patties until you're ready to cook them helps to prevent them from falling apart.
