I made this variation of salmon patties/cakes last night. Very frugal and thrifty recipe but tastes great. Serves 2 at 3 to 4 cakes each depending on how they are formed.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 ounces canned salmon (1 packet or can)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce or 2 tablespoons texas pete
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup breadcrumbs


  1. Mix all well. Form into small or medium size patties/cakes in hand.
  2. Drizzle olive oil or vegetable oil in a skillet. Does not need to be a lot, just enough so the cakes won't stick.
  3. Pan fry till golden brown on both sides.
  4. Serve with Spanish Rice:.
  5. Rice cooked for two people with 1/4 c salsa added.
  6. Place rice in the middle of a plate and top with salmon cakes.
  7. If desired: Dipping sauce Tex mex sauce: ranch dressing or mayonnaise with Texas Pete to taste.

I am always looking for different recipes using canned salmon and I came across this one and had to give it a try. I thought it was really good. I sprinkled some crushed red pepper on the patties as I fried them too, for an even bigger kick! My DH even liked them and he doesn't like salmon too much at all! Thanks for a good recipe!
