We all need a stack of go-to recipes that are tried and true and the family loves. This is one of mine. If you don't like spicy or cilantro, switch out for dill and scallions.


  • 1 cup of wild rice blend
  • 10 ounces of wild salmon
    fresh or canned
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno
    seeded and chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of red onions
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of vegenaise
    or other mayonaise
  • 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of lime juice


  1. You can begin with either fresh wild salmon or canned wild salmon. If using fresh, grill or bake until cooked throughout.
  2. In a large bowl add all ingredients, stir well to combine
  3. Form medium size patties and place on slightly greased cookie sheet (I just poured a scant drop of olive oil onto a paper towel and rubbed the paper towel over the cookie sheet
  4. Bake in 375 oven for 25 minutes
  5. Top with salsa verde or jar salsa or I made a pickled jalapeno tarter sauce… simply chop store bought pickled jalapenos and stir together with 1 tbsp greek yogurt and 1 tbsp vegenaise, thin slightly with juice from the jalapenos.
  6. These store very well in an airtight glass container layered with parchment paper for 4-5 days. Simply pop in the oven for a bit to reheat
