  • 14.75 oz canned pink salmon note 1
  • 3 green onions/spring onions finely sliced

  • 1/4 cup parsley very finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp to start, adjust according to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • Drain salmon and place in a large bowl (bones and all). Mash with a fork until large chunks of meat and bone have been broken up.
  • Add sliced spring onions, diced red onion and chopped parsley. Mix
  • Add mayonnaise, and salt and pepper.
  • Stir until well combined, adjust salt, pepper and mayo to taste.


note 1 - in America I used Bumblebee brand pink salmon and easily found it in supermarkets. In Australia, John West do either a pink or red salmon. I've used both, and they are both great. I do believe pink salmon is cheaper, however!
note 2 - this is really hard to gauge in grams or ounces if it helps it's just slightly under a quarter of an onion.
note 3 - it doesn't make a difference if you use flat leaf or curly parsley!
