New Recipe: Salmon Patties with Sweet Potato Chips & Avocado

These simple yet irresistible salmon patties are a fantastic mid-week meal for the whole family. We recommend cooking a double batch of patties for a delicious on-the-go lunch the following day. Packed with omega-3, protein and vitamin B, salmon is a key food to include in your diet to keep your immune system strong, especially with the flu season approaching!
