Salmon Fish Cakes Recipe

Gather 1 pound of cooked salmon, mashed potatoes, chopped parsley, breadcrumbs, egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and seasoning.


Flake the cooked salmon into small pieces, ensuring there are no bones or skin.

Flaky Salmon

Mix the flaked salmon with mashed potatoes for a smooth texture and binding.

Mashed Potatoes

Add chopped parsley to the mixture for a fresh herby flavor that complements the salmon.

Flavor Boost

Incorporate breadcrumbs to the mixture for added texture and to help hold the cakes together.


Use an egg as a binding agent, helping the ingredients stick together during cooking.

Binding Agent

Introduce a tablespoon of mayonnaise for creaminess and a subtle tangy note.

Creamy Touch

 Squeeze in lemon juice to brighten the flavors and cut through the richness of the fish.

Zesty Twist

Season the mixture with salt, pepper, and any additional desired spices for enhanced taste.


 Form the mixture into patties and pan-fry until golden brown on each side. Serve hot with a side of tartar sauce or a refreshing salad.
