Like crab cakes -- but with salmon! Like crab cakes -- but with salmon!
Number of Servings: 4


    1 can salmon, drained
    1 bunch scallions, minced
    1 Tbsp fresh herbs, minced (parsley, dill, cilantro, or basil)
    1 1/2 tsp Old Bay
    1/4 cup breadcrumbs
    1 Tbsp mayonnaise
    1 egg
    salt & pepper
    vegetable oil


Makes 4 patties.

Mix salmon, scallions, herbs, Old Bay, breadcrumbs, and mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Salt & pepper to taste (though Old Bay is really salty, so I don't add salt). Carefully fold in the egg with a spatula until the mixture just clings together.

Divide mixture into four patties, cover with plastic and chill in the fridge for 1/2 hour.

Dredge patties in flour.

Heat a bit of oil -- a tablespoon max -- in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties until the outsides are crisp and browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Number of Servings: 4

    You could make this more healthy without loss of taste by using unsalted canned salmon, use ground red pepper instead of old bay, use 2 egg whites instead of an egg and skip the mayo or use low fat, use whole wheat bread crumbs and use cooking spray instead of oil. - 7/20/09

    I broil them in my toaster oven. Works as well as i spray with butter or olive oil spray. Saves on calories and I don't usually dredge in flour but keep plain. - 7/22/09
