If you’re looking for ways to include more protein and healthy fats to help manage your PCOS, this PCOS-friendly recipe for simple salmon patties is perfect for you!

Salmon is a nutrient dense fish, with omega-3s, protein, vitamin D and B12. There’s a lot of bang for your buck in this fish, and especially helpful for PCOS.

There are many ways to cook salmon, but my favorite way is to make simple salmon patties or salmon burgers (whatever you want to call them).

This canned salmon recipe is the ultimate family-friendly meal, and with only 5-ingredients it can’t be an easier entrée to prepare. Just mix the ingredients, form into patties and brown them on each side in a frying or skillet pan like this one!

You can always get creative with this recipe and add veggies, spices or create other variations. But this is the simplest recipe for an easy meal the whole family can enjoy. I hope you love it!
