Preparation
STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with lightly greased foil or parchment paper.

STEP 2

Combine panko and 1 tablespoon of the fresh parsley in a shallow bowl and set aside.

STEP 3

Open the cans of salmon, and fully drain the liquid.

STEP 4

Add the cooked or canned salmon to a large bowl and flake well with a fork. Add the green onion, butternut squash, eggs, flour, oil, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. Mix well to fully combine.

STEP 5

Form the mixture into small patties, and gently place in the panko mixture, turning to lightly coat. Place the breaded patties on the baking sheet and repeat to use all of the salmon mixture. You should have about 11-12 patties.

STEP 6

Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking.

STEP 7

Remove from the oven and top with remaining chopped parsley. Serve with a dip of your choice like an aioli or tartar sauce.
