Smoked Salmon Fish Cakes

Recipe by Kevin Young

I saw quite a few salmon cake recipes here but thought I'd share this one as well. These are amazing, even my wife who doesn't like salmon (a concept I don't understand myself) really enjoyed them.

I followed the recipe exactly - Salmon cakes were wonderful. I did use Hannah Tzatziki Yogurt dip as a topping and that really added to the flavor as well. Would definitely make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Flake salmon with a fork and place in a large bowl with potatoes, butter, and mustard and mix well.
  2. Add dill, parsley, chives, lemon rind and juice, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.
  3. Divide mixture into eight portions and form into balls.
  4. Flatten each ball to about 1 inch thick.
  5. Dip each cake in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs thoroughly coating with each.
  6. Fry fish cakes in oil over medium high heat until golden brown and crispy about 5-8 minutes on each side.
  7. You can serve with a tartar sauce or some other condiment but really they are great just with a squeeze of lemon or a dash of tabasco.
