These salmon patties are flaky, tender and so flavorful. The crisp edges and big bites of flaked salmon are the hallmark of these salmon patties. They are the real deal! It’s no wonder these salmon cakes have been so popular (read the glowing reviews here).

This is an easy and excellent way to use leftover salmon and it is worth it to cook the salmon just for this (instructions below). For busy weeknights, you can substitute with well-drained canned salmon or the salmon in packets which you may already have in your pantry!

I hope you all love these salmon patties and the easy homemade tartar sauce that goes with them.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven to 425˚F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment or silicone liner. Place salmon in the center, skin-side-down, drizzle with olive oil and season with garlic salt and black pepper. Bake uncovered for 10-15 min (depending on thickness), or just until cooked through. Remove from oven, cover with foil and rest 10 min. Flake salmon with 2 forks discarding skin and any bones then set aside and cool to room temp.
  2. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat with 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp butter. Add diced onion and bell pepper and saute until golden and softened (7-9 minutes) then remove from heat.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combined flaked salmon, sautéed pepper and onion, 1 cup bread crumbs, 2 beaten eggs, 3 Tbsp mayonnaise, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper and 1/4 cup chopped parsley. Stir to combine. Form into patties (about a heaping Tablespoonful each) and mold with your hands into 2" wide by 1/3 to 1/2" thick patties.**
  4. In a clean non-stick pan, heat 1 Tbsp oil and 1 Tbsp butter until hot then add salmon patties in a single layer. Saute 3 to 4 min per side or until golden brown and cooked through. If salmon patties brown too fast, reduce heat. Remove finished patties to a paper-towel lined plate and repeat with remaining oil, butter and salmon cakes.

Recipe Notes

*Substituting Salmon: If desired, you can substitute the first 4 ingredients listed with 15 oz of well-drained canned salmon or salmon in packets. Leftover salmon from dinner can also be used if available.
**Cook's Tip: If salmon mixture is too dry to hold a patty shape, add an extra tablespoon of mayo and if it is too moist, add more bread crumbs.

      Hi Michele, I saw someone else shared this. “I make salmon cakes in large batches frequently and they are usually a close version to this recipe. I patty them up, pre-freeze on a cookie sheet, then vacuum seal them before storing them in the freezer. They are great and you can cook from frozen the same as fresh. I always cook mine on a greased cookie sheet at 400-425.” I hope that helps!

    This recipe is delicious! I made the tartar sauce too and it was out of this world! I do have one question though. As soon as I put the patties in the frying pan they fell apart and I ended up just frying the mixture together in the pan. Do you have any advice for ensuring the patties keep their form in the pan?

      Hi Hayley. So glad you enjoyed this recipe. If the salmon mixture is too dry it will be harder to hold a patty shape. If that is the case, then add an extra tablespoon of mayo and if it is too moist, add more bread crumbs. When I shape them, I make sure they are nice and tight as well. I hope that helps.

    This was so delicious and easy to follow! I didn’t use garlic salt or any salt, but rather garlic powder. It turned out very flavorful. I also used a meatball scoop since I didn’t have an ice cream one and got 18 smaller patties vs 14.

    Substituting Salmon: If desired, you can substitute the first 4 ingredients listed with 15 oz of well-drained canned salmon or salmon in packets. Is this supposed to mean you can skip the first four steps or would you really leave out the ingredients garlic salt, olive oil, and pepper?

      Hi, yes that is correct, since the first 4 ingredients are used to cook raw salmon, you don’t need them if you are using canned salmon.

    These look wonderful. I’m making Friday for Lent, plus your tarter sauce to go along with them. The only change is that I’ll be making with canned red salmon. Next time I make, I’ll make with the fresh salmon as written. I’ve made quite a few of your creations, and they ALL were delicious, especially the lamb stew. I’ve pretty much deleted all other recipe blogs I’ve followed in the past, after discovering your site. I’ve received many compliments on your dishes I’ve made, and I’ve been most happy to direct all my friends here.

    My question is the parsley. Do you use Italian or the curly one? My mother made salmon and tuna patties during Lent, and they were simple, but oh so good. My mom passed away last August, and sadly she never wrote down her recipes for her fish patties. Your recipe sounds very similar to hers, but she used a green bell pepper and regular bread crumbs, not panko, and I think a bit more mayo? And fried in a coating of corn meal. Anyhow, I’m looking forward to these, as they remind me of her during this Lenten season.

    Lastly, upon reading your bio, I see you are Ukrainian. My thoughts and prayers to your family and relatives during this *horrible* and sad time for your country.

          Hi Christine. The salmon in this recipe is already baked. The frying part is just to create the crust. I have not tested this step in the oven, you’d have to expirement with it. Just use caution, so that you do not bake too long and dry out the patties.

      Hi Marianne, I imagine cooked patties would freeze well, but I’m not sure if the patties would fall apart or not if they are frozen before cooking. If you experiment, let me know how it goes! We try not to keep anything in the freezer for more than 3 months, but I can’t advise on the outcome without testing this myself.

    I made these with some leftover steelhead trout that I had oven-baked the day before, and didn’t want to just reheat. I didn’t have red pepper on hand, so I subbed a mix of celery & fresh corn, & it worked great! For me, it was missing a little flavor, but that may have been b/c it wasn’t salmon & I didn’t use garlic salt when I baked the fish 🙂 So I added some Crystal hot sauce to the mix; & I might get some Old Bay seasoning to have on hand for next time too, b/c this one’s still a keeper! It made 6 burger-size patties; I fried 3 & froze 3 uncooked, to take out for a quick dinner sometime. I also made the tartar sauce linked here & it was so good! I might also try these w/ sriracha mayo sometime… Anyway, with a good salad & a bottle of wine, these made a great quick weeknight meal that felt like we splurged on a really nice dinner out!

    This recipe is a staple in our home, so delicious. I substitute panko crumbs for Almond four GF & don’t use as much. We also use if we want salmon burgers, or smaller portions if we want appt. Thank you for the wonderful recipe, so versatile.

    First attempt at Salmon patties and they were DELICIOUS! Didn’t have dill pickles, so I substituted sweet relish and the tartar sauce was also quite good. Thank you for sharing the recipes. This is a keeper!

    This has become a favorite of ours. I used canned salmon, I didn’t have a red pepper, but I had a jar of pimentos, no need to sauté them as they are already soft, just drain well. These are great as an appetizer, as a sandwich, or main course of your meal, tonight making it with an Orzo Pilaf and a vegetable.

    Is there any way possible that in the instructions section when you change the number of servings that the instructions can be changed as well ?? I have noticed it before that the ingredients reflect but the instructions part stays the same as shown on original servings. Hoping this makes sense 🙏. Love all you do and make 👍❤️

    I don’t understand the calories in this recipe. It says it’s 145 calories, but how many servings is that? I’m on a strict diet and need to track this. For example, I ate 3 patties. Is it 145/patty?

    Made these salmon patties tonight. They are a definite keeper. I used leftover salmon from dinner the other night. I didn’t have any parsley so chopped up some spinach and sautéed it with onions and red peppers. The patties were moist and very tasty. I made tarter sauce with sweet relish. Will definitely make them again. So easy and tasty.

    Made this recipe almost as is but used wild caught smoked salmon (not big fans of canned salmon). Because it is moist and a bit more salty used garlic powder rather than garlic salt and cut back on the mayonnaise by about a Tbsp. Very tasty, flavors well balanced, panko gave a nice crisp! Might try the air fryer next time. Only suggestion is maybe a little dill for freshness. Tried to attach a picture but couldn’t figure out how but looks almost the photo!

    I’m not a fan of fish but I’ve always loved my father’s salmon cakes. Since he died, I’ve tried to replicate them with no success. This recipe is the closest to his that I could find and I believe it’s in large part due to using fresh salmon. I love these and have made them a few times. Since I live in Maryland, I had to alter the recipe by adding Old Bay Seasoning! Very tasty!

You sure the measurements for the garlic salt and pepper are correct? The salmon cooked up perfectly but SO much garlic salt and pepper! Threw it in the trash!

      Hi Danny, those measurements are correct for that amount of salmon. If using less salmon, you would want to adjust the garlic salt accordingly.

        I make salmon cakes in large batches frequently and they are usually a close version to this recipe. I patty them up, pre-freeze on a cookie sheet, then vacuum seal them before storing them in the freezer. They are great and you can cook from frozen the same as fresh. I always cook mine on a greased cookie sheet at 400-425.

        I froze some keeping them separate for ease of picking them out individually (maybe 5 or 6 weeks). Let one thaw for about 1 1/2 hours. It was kind of fragile but cooked up in a saute pan beautifully and was just as tasty!
