Salmon Cakes

Salmon cakes are a great way to get your family to eat another serving of fish. These can even made in the slow cooker - see the tip at the bottom of the recipe. The dill sauce adds even more flavor, especially for any skeptical taste buds.

Salmon Cakes

  • 3 6-oz cans boneless skinless salmon drained and flaked with a fork
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn thawed
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup Colby jack cheese shredded
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil

Dill Sauce (optional)

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 2% milk fat recommended
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill


For the Salmon Cakes

  • In a large bowl, combine the flaked salmon with the egg, corn, breadcrumbs, cheese, salt and pepper. Stir well.
  • Form mixture into 8 patties.
  • Heat 1/2 tablespoon canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 4 of the salmon cakes to the pan and cook on each side until browned, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining oil and salmon cakes. Serve one to two salmon cakes per person with dill sauce.

For the Dill Sauce

  • Put all ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Serve with salmon cakes.


Chef’s Note: Did you know you can actually make salmon cakes in the slow cooker? Just follow these steps:
  1. Spray the inside of a 6-quart slow cooker insert with cooking spray.
  2. Rather than forming into patties, form the salmon cake mixture into balls just slightly bigger than a golf ball. From the recipe above, you’ll get about 9 salmon balls. Place the salmon cakes into the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low in the slow cooker for 4 hours or until cooked through and slightly browned on the outside.
