Servings: 4

Cook Time: 35 mins.


8-9 ounces cooked Bristol Bay sockeye salmon (substitute canned), flaked into small bits

5 strips bacon, cooked till crisp and finely chopped

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

half a bell pepper, finely chopped

2 green onions, minced

1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

2/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar

2 eggs

3 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Sour cream, for serving


In a medium mixing bowl combine all the ingredients except the sour cream. Mixture should hold together when squeezed into a ball.

Spray a waffle iron (or panini press) with cooking spray and heat till hot. Place 3/4 cup of the salmon mix in the middle of the iron and close. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until browned.

Repeat with remaining salmon mix, being sure to clean and spray the iron before adding more mix.

Serve immediately topped with a dollop of sour cream.
