These are not your moms salmon patties. Growing up, my mom made salmon patties pretty often but they were never a meal I enjoyed. Mostly, because the canned salmon grossed me out. Once I started cooking and groccery shopping for myself I realized that salmon patties make for a quick and easy meal thats also super filling. I found a brand of canned salmon that I liked, Raincoast Trading. There salmon is wild, there is no additives, and the cans are BPA free.
When I came up with this recipe I wanted to make them a little different than the traditional salmon patties which is why I added sweet potato. I also like knowing that there are some hidden veggies in these! I like to enjoy these overtop of a salad as my protein source. But they can also be served like you would a traditional burger with all your favourite toppings and sides!
