If you’re looking for an easy weeknight meal that’s packed with protein and flavor, you have to try air fryer salmon patties! They’re perfect for seafood lovers or anyone looking to incorporate more nutritious fish into their diet.

Best of all, we’ll be using canned salmon and other pantry staples for extra convenience! The combination of panko, eggs, fresh herbs, and seasoning adds delightful flavor and crunch to each bite while air frying helps us achieve a perfectly crispy exterior without the need for deep frying.

The whole meal can be ready in less than 20 minutes! Serve over salads, in a wrap, on your favorite bun, or however you and your family like. Once you try a bite, you might find yourself making this recipe on repeat!

A full printable version of this recipe with ingredient measurements is available at the bottom of this post.

STEP ONE: Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees F.

STEP TWO: In a large bowl, mix together the salmon, panko breadcrumbs, egg, green onion, red pepper, dill, dijon mustard, garlic powder, and salt until everything is fully combined.

STEP THREE: Form the mixture into 4 patties, pressing each firmly into a disc shape.

STEP FOUR: Add to the preheated air fryer and allow to cook for 8 minutes, flipping once halfway through, or until cooked through.

STEP FIVE: Serve immediately with lemon wedges and additional dill if desired.

Canned salmon is pre-cooked, so our goal is to cook the patties long enough to get them golden on the outside and hot all the way through. The crispy exterior is what makes them absolutely irresistible!

When I air fry salmon patties, I find that 8 minutes at 375 degrees F, flipping halfway through the cooking time, is just right. Keep in mind that the exact cooking time can vary based on your make and model of air fryer and how thick you make your salmon burgers.
