I like to add in a couple tablespoons of fresh lemon juice also! Please adjust the curry powder to taste. This recipe will make four about 3/4-inch patties but can easily be doubled. Plan ahead the patties need to chill for 1 hour before frying.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 (15 ounce) salmon (use red or pink salmon, drained and bones removed)
  • 1 small apple, peeled and finely chopped (about 1/2 cup chopped apple)
  • 14 cup fine dry breadcrumb (more if needed)
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder (can use more to taste)
  • 12 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and black pepper
  • oil (for frying)


  1. In a bowl break up the salmon with a fork; add in eggs, apple, bread crumbs, onions, mayo, curry powder and paprika; mix to combine well.
  2. Season with salt and pepper to taste (if the mixture is too soft add in a little more bread crumbs if needed).
  3. Shape into four patties; place on a plate, cover and chill for a minimum of 1 hour to blend the flavors.
  4. Heat oil in a frypan over medium heat; add in the patties and fry until golden brown (about 4-5 minutes per side).
  5. Delicious!

Made these salmon cakes over the weekend and I'm still enjoying the leftovers. I increased the amount of curry powder and added some lemon juice, as suggested, but did not otherwise alter the recipe. I served these cakes with a honey mustard lime sauce. Very delicious.

OMG! This is delicious! Kittencal thank you for this wonderful recipe. I made this tonight and served it for dinner 3 hours ago. My husband is still raving about how delicious the meal was! I added more curry powder and used cayenne pepper in place of the paprika as we are 'spicy' folks. I also added the lemon juice. I served it with a lettuce tomato salad and wild rice. YUMMMMMIE!

I made the mixture up for this in the AM and put in the frig till evening when I made up the cakes. I used Maharajah Curry Powder and lots of fresh lemon juice. Next time, and there will be a next time, I think I will use a hot curry powder as we like a little more bite. Served them with more lemon slices to squeese on, coleslaw, baked sweet potatoes and roasted asparagus. Really yummy Kittencal. Thanks for posting.
