Tasty Salmon Fritters

Details
Buying Tips
Gluten Free
Dairy Free

These tasty salmon fritters are easy to whip up for lunch or make as a tasty snack. Salmon is high in calcium (providing you leave the bones in), which is great for those of us on the low FODMAP diet who can’t tolerate dairy products. These fritters make great burger patties or you can serve them on top of rice vermiclli noodles & stir-fried veggies.

Switch back from trace gluten free Switch to trace gluten free

Make sure you buy plain canned salmon that doesn’t have added high FODMAP ingredients like onion or garlic. You can use fresh salmon if you prefer, but you will need to cook it first.

Check the crushed ginger does not contain garlic. Crushed ginger is grated ginger that has been preserved in a jar. You can swap it for fresh ginger if you prefer.

Buy gluten free burger bun that does not contain any high FODMAP ingredients like inulin, apple or pear juice, apple fibre, concentrated fruit juices, honey, or high fructose corn syrup. Also check what low FODMAP flours have been used, avoid gluten free products that contain amaranth flour, lupin flour, garbanzo/besan flour, or large amounts of soy flour or coconut flour.

If not all of your household need to be low FODMAP you can buy them normal burger buns.

Make sure the mayonnaise does not contain onion, garlic or other high FODMAP ingredients.

Make sure the mayonnaise is gluten free.

Unless you have coeliac disease, then you do not need to worry about being trace gluten free while on the low FODMAP diet. Gluten is not a FODMAP and small amounts of wheat are low FODMAP.

Make sure your mayonnaise is dairy free. Avoiding dairy in these products will help you reduce your lactose intake if you are on the low FODMAP diet.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Open and drain the can of salmon. Scrape the salmon into a medium size bowl. Thinly slice the green leek tips or spring onion tips. Lightly beat the egg and add it to the salmon along with the green leek tips (sliced), crushed ginger, toasted sesame oil, and some salt and pepper. Mix the ingredients well. The mixture will be quite chunky and wet.
  2. Heat a large fry pan on medium heat and spray with non-stick oil (or rub olive oil around the pan with a paper towel). Place 1/4 cup measures of mixture directly in the pan (you should fit 4 patties per batch). The patties will need to be cooked for about 4 minutes per side until they are golden brown. Don’t be tempted to flip with patties too early otherwise they will fall apart on you!
  3. RICE VERMICELII & STIR-FRIED BOK CHOY OPTION If serving with thin rice vermicelli noodles, measure the noodles into a separate medium sized bowl and cover with boiling water. Drain after 10 minutes.Wilt the shredded bok choy in a frypan for 3 minutes (I do this while cooking the patties). Serve the salmon fritters on top of the rice vermicelli and bok choy. Garnish with a dollop of mayonnaise if desired.
  4. SALMON FRITTER BURGER OPTION Warm the gluten free burger buns in the oven on high for about 5 minutes. Wash and shred the lettuce. Cut the tomatoes into slices or wedges. Serve the salmon fritters and salad in the gluten free buns with a dollop of mayonnaise.

    Just tried this recipe for my daughter who is moving out of home for the first time and has to cook to manage her IBS. We all LOVED the fritters! I have to admit to reading the recipe wrong and adding the cooked noodles to the mix as well (oops) but it still worked out. Very tasty and easy, she'll definitely be adding this recipe to her repertoire!

    • Alana Scott 07/01/2015 8:17am (3 years ago)

      I'm so glad you enjoyed the recipe! Tinned salmon is definitely a staple item in my pantry and is a good low cost food for students. Have fun cooking!

    Thanks Alana, this was such a great recipe. I made these for a friend and glad to have plenty left over for lunch (I doubled the ingredients). I actually made these for our starter with some watercress and your lamb chops with mint noodles for main. I've really struggled to find quick, easy, tasty, low-fat low FODMAP recipes since starting the diet and you've just made my life a lot easier (and tastier)!

      Thank you for your lovely feedback Sadie.

  • Taira 29/06/2015 9:21am (2 years ago)

    This recipe is great and so easy. I used spinach leaves instead and added lemon as a dressing instead of mayonnaise. =)

    • Alana Scott 29/06/2015 11:01am (2 years ago)

      So glad you enjoyed the recipe Taira!

    thank You, Alana. I found this dish & am going to look for more, on littlebityummy! the salad shown with the salmon fritters is lovely, too!

    I have been on low FODMAP for a couple of years--thanks to a great Doc in the New Castle County, DE area. I could have used it [all] about 20 years ago, when i first had IBS. Live and learn!

      Hi Karen,
      I'm so happy to hear that you are enjoying exploring the website and trying the recipes! It's also lovely to hear that you have a great doctor looking after you! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you on your FODMAP journey :-)
