Salmon Cakes

salmon cake


12-14 ounces cooked salmon (canned is great to use)

2 eggs

1/2 cup breadcrumbs, panko or whole wheat are best. 

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs, like chives, parsley, or dill

A squeeze of lemon juice

Olive oil for pan-frying


Flake the salmon apart. Mix all burger ingredients together and form into three large or four medium patties. Heat olive oil over medium heat, ideally in a nonstick skillet. Fry the burgers for a few minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy. Place on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with salt.
