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.

Author: Natasha of NatashasKitchen.com
Skill Level: Easy
Cost to Make: $12-$14
Calories: 145 kcal
Servings: 14 salmon patties

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh salmon filet*
  • 3 Tbsp Olive oil divided
  • 1 1/2 tsp Garlic salt I used Lawry's Brand, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper or to taste
  • 1 medium yellow onion 1 cup, finely diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter divided
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup parsley finely minced

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.

    Just tried this with my Wife, normally we cannot work together in the kitchen at all. This time however it was a pleasure, so multi kudos just for that!
    Adjusted the ingredients slightly for 8 salmon cakes and used natural Greek yoghurt instead of the mayo and it was really really GREAT. Reply

    These salmon patties are delicious. I’ve made them a couple times now and I’m never disappointed. Fresh salmon is the way to go! This last time I made the salmon the day before to help save some time during the week and it worked out perfectly. I also have to say the homemade tartar sauce that’s linked in this recipe is absolutely amazing! So simple to make. I let it sit an hour in the fridge before dinner. Everyone loved it! Definitely give it a try, you wont be disappointed! Reply

    DELICIOUS! Perfect way to use fresh, wild, Alaskan, sockeye salmon scraps left over from making uniform-sized smoked salmon strips that we preserve in jars.

    I made a double batch and wonder if it’s better to cook patties and freeze, or freeze patty-sized portions… Any experience or advice?

    Hi Natasha, I made these salmon patties yesterday, however, I used a hamburger patty maker. The patties were about 4 inches in diameter and about 3/4 inches thick. I made four of them. They crumbled a bit on the edges in the frying pan, perhaps I need to use more mayo next time. The patties did take longer to cook, but they were filling. Do you think that adding more mayo would resolve the crumbliness or could I add an extra egg?? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      June 4, 2019

      Hi James, Make sure to use the same proportions of ingredients in the recipe so it doesn’t get too dry. If it is too dry adding more mayo may help. Also, a good non-stick, well oiled pan helps and add them to a hot pan to keep them from sticking. If they aren’t sticking to the pan, they will be easier to flip and won’t fall apart as easilly. Reply

      Hi Millie! I honestly haven’t experimented with any substitutions. Something like sour cream may work, but I just haven’t tested it to make a good recommendation. You might also substitute with a little olive oil for extra moisture. I’ve also seen people sub mayo with mashed avocado for a healthier substitute, but again, I haven’t tested it in this recipe. Reply

    Hey Natasha! Love your recipe! Is there any ways that I can prepare the Salmon without baking them since I don’t have an oven at home but I don’t want to use canned salmon as well. I am a beginner in cooking and really want to try cook this fantastic dish! Thank you so much!! Reply

      Hi Iris! I think frying the salmon on low heat may work if you don’t want to use an oven. 🙂 I hope this helps Reply

    I have made these several times and we love them. Have always used home canned salmon and generally use a can of red and a can of smoked. Reply

    First time cooking salmon and made these as a side dish for lunch today. I couldn’t stop eating it, it was so awesomely delicious.
    My daughter loves salmon so I think I will be making more of these sooner than later. Thank you so much for the recipe. Reply

    Great recipe! The freshly cooked Salmon makes all the difference-plus much healthier-no additives for preservation as in the canned product. Thank you-I always love a great tasting recipe that takes minutes prepare! Reply

    Wow!! I tried these patties last night with some salmon that I had left over and they were amazing. They were not at all dry. I didn’t have all the ingredient to make the sauce but will try it next time I make the patties. Thank you for all the recipes that you share with us! Reply

      It is so good! One of my readers reported good results baking but I haven’t heard back with the details on bake time and temperature. If you test it out that way, let me know how you like them baked. I have found that it helps to control splatter when I sauté things in my dutch oven since it has tall walls and contains the oils 🙂 Reply

    Hello Natasha
    I live on Vancouver Island and am very fortunate to always have an abundant supply of wild Chinook and Coho salmon on hand.
    Your recipe for salmon patties is the best I’ve ever had. I now make a triple batch, vacuum pack them in dinner size amounts and freeze them. The only tweak I make to the recipe is adding a few drops of Maggi sauce. Thanks for this great recipe Natasha, keep up the good work. Cheers. Ron. Reply

    Hi, Natasha!
    we are always on the lookout for a good salmon patty/cake/burger recipe. So far none have been satisfying. However, I made your recipe using canned wild caught red salmon (2 – 7 ounce cans) and these were amazing salmon patties! This is a keeper recipe for sure! Thanks! Reply

    Out of the world and is so good! so glad you shared this every time I make salmon patties I don’t really like them but this is divine. Never had made with fresh salmon always use canned and I did it this time with fresh it was so good and the homemade tartar sauce my family loved it my husband told me it was better than store-bought and so did my daughter they just wanted to eat it 😂 Reply

    Hi! These look delicious – going to try them immediately! Your pronunciation of ‘worchestershire’ made me chuckle though! I’m from the UK so if you will allow me to help – it’s pronounced “Wuss-ter-sheer”. (Although most brits call it Wuss-ter sauce – a lazy nickname for it!) Hope that makes things easier for you in the future! Reply

    Hi Natasha! I am excited as I just subscribed after a few recipes posted on FB. I am going to try these Salmon Patties for company coming from the Oregon Coast. I am sure the Salmon won’t be as good as the fresh Salmon my folks use to catch up there, but I think they’ll love them. My Mom used to make them and Tuna Patties when we were kids, but not quite as fancy as these! I also like the ideas from some of your other followers such as the Lemon Zest, Dijon Mustard. etc. I’ll bet pinch of Dill would be too. I’m also sure that Crab meat would be a great substitute! Can’t wait to try it! Reply

    I made these tonight for my father and fiancé and myself! We all loved them! I do not eat dairy, so I substituted the butter with an olive oil based “butter” instead. I used the brand Earth Balance. It was still great! We are full, satisfied and excited about left overs! 😋 Reply

    As soon as I saw this recipe I knew I had to make it. They are everything promised and more.

    I don’t usually tweet recipes the first I eat I try them but I love lemon zest and did add some to the patties, also my husband asked to add capers to the tartar, it’s amazing!

    We will definitely be adding this to our meal plans. Reply

    These are SO YUMMY. We aren’t a big fish family but I know we need to add more into our diet. These were a hit with my family of 4. My 15 month old gobbled one down and my 5 year old ate a few for dinner and then ate a few more for leftovers the next day for lunch! They are also simple to make, my 5 year old loved helping me.

      Hi Elmedina, I haven’t tried this myself but one of my readers wrote in with a very helpful review on that: ” Made this to the recipe – except I used almond meal instead of bread crumbs. It was a huge hit, as was the tartar sauce.” That may help somewhat I hope. Reply
