Chris’ Crispy Salmon Cakes

Salmon cakes. Not crab cakes. SALMON CAKES. These little bad boys are perfect for hors d’oeuvre and they taste great too! Serve them with a garlic mayonnaise sauce and it’s the perfect flavor and texture combination.


  • Cooked salmon (season with salt and pepper before you cook them)
  • Mayonnaise (1 cup)
  • Dijon mustard (1/2 cup)
  • Garlic (minced, about 1-2 tablespoons)
  • Green onion (chopped, about a handful)
  • Cayenne pepper (1 tablespoon)
  • Old Bay seasoning (1 tablespoon)
  • Panko bread crumbs (1 cup)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Flake or rip the salmon into small fine pieces
  • In a bowl, combine the salmon with all the wet and dry ingredients
  • Use 1/3 of the panko for the mixture
  • Use your hands to mix everything together evenly
  • Roll little balls of the mix and coat in your remaining panko
  • Flatten your balls so they look something below
