Simple and gorgeous. Helps with Omega 3 but don’t tell the kids. Simple Salmon Cakes only take 20 minutes to cook but are filling and tasty. Unlike some recipes, I use celery and onion to make it go further together with the breadcrumbs. This makes them economic but do not take away the taste. Serve as part of a main dish but also ideal in a bap with a little tartare sauce.

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add onion and celery; cook, stirring, until softened.
  • Stir in parsley and remove from the heat.
  • Place salmon in a medium bowl and flake apart with a fork ensuring to remove any bones and skin.
  • Add egg and mustard; mix well.
  • Add the onion mixture, breadcrumbs and pepper; mix well.
  • Shape the mixture into 8 patties, about 2 1/2 inches wide.
  • Heat remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in the pan over medium heat.
  • When it has reached temperature, add 4 patties and cook until the undersides are golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a wide spatula, turn them over onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining patties.
  • Place the baking sheet and the salmon cakes until golden on top and heated through.
  • Serve salmon cakes with sauce and lemon wedges and a veg of your choice.
  • Lots of sauces to choose from on this site but would recommend the Dill Sauce.
