Rellenitos de Platano

Sharing is caring!

This rellenos de plátano recipe is from Guatemala, and it can be used as a dessert, an appetizer, or a just-because recipe. My grandmother taught me how to make this. If you are looking for something different, you just found what you are looking for! Make as much as you want. Eat them plain, topped with a bit of sugar, or with sour cream like we do in Guatemala!


  • 1 (5 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
  • ½ cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed
  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • sea salt to taste


Mix salmon, breadcrumbs, onion, Dijon mustard, egg, and lemon juice together in a bowl; form into 2 patties.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties in the hot oil until lightly browned and cooked through, 4 minutes per side; season with sea salt and black pepper.

Mix sour cream, dill, garlic powder, and sea salt together in a bowl; serve alongside salmon patties.
