How to Make Fluffy, Crispy Salmon Cakes

Salmon cakes Sometimes we called them Salmon Croquettes or Salmon Cakes.  The premise, the recipe is just about the same.  If you are a salmon lover who would love to eat them fried and crispy with a fluffy, tasty inside, this recipe is for you.  I have modified some of the ingredients as we now know how much better the Extra Virgin Olive or Safflower oil is as opposed to some of the cooking oils used in the past.

The things that you will need:

5 slices of white bread

15 ounce can of Salmon

2 eggs beaten

teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup of finely chopped onion (white or red)

1/2 teaspoon of  Lawry's lemon pepper

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Safflower oil (see below for measurements)

Yellow cornmeal

1.)  In medium sized bowl, tear the bread up into small pieces and set aside

2.)  Drain all of the juices from the salmon into the bread and blend

3.)  Now add the salmon to the bowl with the bread.  Add the eggs, onion, salt, lemon pepper (optional), pepper and blend.

4.)  With a large scoop spoon, scoop up a ball of salmon, form into a oval ball in your hand and then roll into the yellow corn meal lightly and place into a dry platter.  Continue until you have depleted mixture.

5.)  In a 9" or 10" skillet, add enough olive oil to make about an inch of  oil.

6.)  Heat oil over medium heat until there is a little smoke rising or when dropping a piece of moist salmon or bread, there is sizzling, place the cakes, not touching each other.

7.)  Cook each side from 3-4 minutes making sure that bottom is firm and brown.  Turn over and repeat.  When finished, place on extra absorbant paper towel.  Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!

Salmon is very good for you, but I do not like the taste of the fish, however the salmon cakes do sound delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This is exactly what I was craving. I followed the recipe to the word with the only exception of an addition to Old Bay seasoning (a favorite seasoning of Grandmas that she used to make delicious salmon parties) While Grandma's was always my favorite recipe. your texture was superior in every way. I even cooked them in an old iron skillet. NO Tartar sauce needed on these babies. Thank you for sharing.
