Must-try for both you and I…. I have always wanted to make salmon cakes. They’re a tasty and fun way to get your protein & omega-3s in. Add a side salad and you have the perfect meal! Here’s a recipe I found online:


  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 15 ounces canned salmon, drained, or 1 1/2 cups cooked salmon
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 3/4 cups whole-wheat breadcrumbs
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Creamy Dill Sauce, (recipe follows)
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Step 2
    Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery; cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in parsley; remove from the heat.
  • Step 3
    Place salmon in a medium bowl. Flake apart with a fork; 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.
  • Step 4
    Heat remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in the pan over medium heat. 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.
  • Step 5
    Bake the salmon cakes until golden on top and heated through, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare Creamy Dill Sauce. Serve salmon cakes with sauce and lemon wedges.
