Quinoa and Salmon Patties

Last weekend, I craved quinoa patties but saw a can of salmon lying on my countertop. So I thought, why don’t I add them in my patties? And as a result, I have created these quinoa and salmon patties.

You could easily substitute the tin salmon for some fresh, sustainable salmon. By the way, I’m having significant issues with fish and sustainability at the moment – anyone else? I feel comfortable with my free-range butcher, but where does one turn for fresh, sustainable, wild fish apart from this canned wild salmon (hardly my first choice)?

Nevertheless, I hope you love this quinoa and salmon patties recipe just as I do!
