I started making these patties after reading the health benefits of oat bran flour and lowering cholesterol, and found that the oat bran gives a delicious taste and adds to the texture. They are also easy to make. The children could have a go at making these.

1 415 grams tin salmon

1 egg

¾ cup oat bran flour (Health Food store)

1 tablespoon brown rice or wholemeal flour

½ cup tinned lentils or muesli (optional or use more flour)

1 medium onion finely chopped or grated

1 tablespoon of mixed herbs, parsley, oregano

Black pepper, chilli powder and coriander powder (optional)

Olive oil to mix, if needed


Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and shape into patties

Fry patties in a lightly greased pan on a moderate heat for 10 minutes,

then turn and cook until set

Serve immediately with a drop of tomato sauce and a fresh green salad

Tip: Keep the heat moderate so the patties set in the middle and take your time

while they are cooking to prepare the green salad.


Bon Appetit
