How to Cook Kimberly’s Super Salmon Cakes

Salmon - CookingWithKimberly.comI just love salmon cakes, tuna cakes, crab cakes, lobster cakes…the list goes on and on…This is a great and quick recipe for a quick lunch, appetizer, or for the main dish at dinnertime. Enjoy! ~ Kimberly Edwards 😀

Type: Main Dish Recipe
Serve With: Sour cream, chives and dill.
Prep Time: 5-8 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Yield: 6 salmon cakes


  • 2 cans salmon – You may use red or pink.
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs – These are Asian style bread crumbs. You may use any crumbs you wish in substituting.
  • 1 cup cracker or chip crumbs – Use whatever your favorite cracker is (I use chicken biscuits or potato chips), but you may use anything you like.
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley – ~1 tsp dried
  • 1 1/2 tbsp freshly chopped dill – ~1 tsp dried ( You may also use dill seeds.)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • * 2 tbsp flax seeds – * optional
  • * 1 1/2 tbsp black sesame seeds – * optional; You may use any type of sesame seeds.
  • 1 clove garlic – finely minced/crushed
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon – If you are using lemon juice from the bottle, only use about 1/4 tsp. You may also use zest, if you like.
  • freshly cracked black pepper – to taste
  • sea salt – to taste; use sparingly
  • 1 1/2 tbsp canola oil – for frying pan


  1. Heat frying pan to medium heat with canola oil in it. * Tip: When you don’t want to add any extra flavor from your oil, use canola or vegetable, as they are relatively tasteless.
  2. Combine all ingredients in large bowl, and allow to stand for a few minutes, so that the crumbs can soak up the liquids.
  3. Form 6 cakes/patties.
  4. Turn heat down slightly, and pan fry for ~ 5 min on the 1st side, then ~3-4 min on the 2nd side, or until golden brown on both sides. * Tip: Try to only turn patties once, as they are more delicate than a burger patty, for example.
  5. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top, and chives and/or dill sprinkled on top.

This one was a winner at our house! Quick, delicious and easy to make! Superb!
