When the craving for fish cakes hits, I choose the economical and tasty canned salmon that?s always in my pantry. Canned salmon is packed with the same big flavors and nutrients that I expect from fresh salmon.

Recipe Ingredients for Crispy Salmon Cakes

29 1/2 oz salmon, drained
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup tartar sauce or mayonnaise
2 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup canola oil

Recipe Directions for Crispy Salmon Cakes

  1. Make the salmon mixture. Mix together the salmon, 1 cup of the panko, the tartar sauce or mayonnaise, scallions or onion powder, the egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.

  2. Shape the cakes. Form the mixture into eight 3″ cakes that are about 1″ thick. Place the remaining 1⁄2 cup of panko in a shallow dish and press the cakes into the bread crumbs until all sides are evenly coated.

  3. Fry the salmon cakes. Heat 1⁄2 cup of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, fry the salmon cakes in 2 batches until golden brown on both sides, 8 to 10 minutes per batch, adding the remaining 1⁄4 cup of oil to fry the second batch if necessary. Place the salmon cakes on a paper towel?lined plate to drain, and serve hot.
