Excellent flavor and when I served these to my parents, they both enjoyed them, and my Mom even said, these were better than hers.

How to Make Salmon Cakes


  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat a tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of butter and the onion and bell pepper. Cook until softened and starting to turn golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes then remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl, and the salmon, bread crumbs, eggs, mayo, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, and parsley. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the onion and bell pepper, and mix that in then form into 12-13 small patties, or as I do form into 5-6 patties.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a large non stick skillet over medium heat and once butter is done sizzling, add half of the salmon cakes and fry for 3 to 4 min per side or until golden brown. If salmon cakes brown too quickly, reduce heat. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Add remaining oil and butter and repeat cooking remaining salmon cakes.
  5. Serve with a tartar sauce or dipping sauces of your preference and sides of your choice.
