Piece-of-Cake Salmon Cakes

“Mix a couple dozen ingredients…” “Prepare to batter and fry…”

Those recipes – ubiquitous on the internets – for salmon cakes didn’t appeal to me. I wanted something simple that I could prepare in a flash.

So here’s what I came up with – no measuring spoons or cups required! All measurements are approximate. Eyeball it! And here’s a tip: bake your fish in a cast iron pan to save on aluminum foil.

Piece-of-Cake Salmon Cakes

Serves 4-6
Meal type Main Dish

Ingredients

  • 8oz salmon (fresh, roughly two center-cut fillets)
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • all-purpose flour (if needed)

Directions

Step 1
Bake two salmon fillets for 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While salmon cooks, mix remaining ingredients in a bowl.
Step 2
Flake cooked fish and add to mixture.
Step 3
Heat greased pan on medium or medium-low.
Step 4
Form salmon into patties and place in hot pan. Add flour to salmon mixture if needed to hold patty shape. Cook about 2 minutes each side or until nicely browned.

That’s it. No dicing, no extra steps, no frills. BONUS: they’re tasty served hot or cold (break up leftover cakes and add to a salad!) and kid friendly, too.

After you cook the first salmon cake, taste it. If it needs a little more of certain ingredients, you can add them before cooking up the rest of the patties.

What’s your favorite side dish to serve with salmon cakes?
