Keeping canned salmon on hand is a great way to make sure that you can get a nutritious meal on the table when you can’t get to the grocery store for fresh ingredients. 
 
Salmon is packed with nutritional benefits like Omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins which are an important part of a Heart Smart diet.  Salmon also is beneficial in weight management and control. USDA studies have shown that canned salmon has nearly the same nutrient content as fresh.  In fact, one study showed increased levels of Omega-3 fatty acids in the canned version. 
 
Making salmon patties in the air fryer means not having to fry them in oil.  That means these patties are not only healthier but there’s much less mess to clean up.
 
I made these gluten-free by using almond flour instead of regular flour. I prefer them this way but you could try subbing regular flour if that is what you have on hand.

Pro Tips:

Try using my favorite all purpose seasoning in the salmon patties.

Sir Kensington’s Mayonnaise is a healthier option than traditional mayonnaise.  

Salmon Patties pair well with Blueberry Salad and Air Fryer Parmesan Crusted Salmon.salmon patties in air fryer basket
 
Salmon Patties taste great topped with pineapple salsa, tarter sauce, or simply a dollop of mayo.
