Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Total time: 1 hr
Serves: 4-8


  • 1 pound salmon burger, roughly chopped
  • ½ shallot, finely minced
  • ½ large egg (approximately), whisked
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups panko, divided
  • ¼ cup grapeseed oil


In a large bowl, combine all salmon, shallot, egg, dijon, mayonnaise, parsley, salt and pepper. Add ½ cup panko and stir to combine. Set mixture aside for 30 minutes for salmon mixture to firm up.

With a one ounce scoop or spoon, divide mixture into equal-sized cakes. Roll cakes in remaining 1 ½ cups panko, flatting  ¾-1 inch thickness.

Add ¼ cup grapeseed oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry salmon cakes in batches, until golden brown and cooked through, approximately 2 minutes per side. Rest on a paper towel lined plate and fry remaining cakes in remaining ¼ oil.

*Alternatively, you can bake these at 400 degrees, drizzled with olive oil, on a parchment lined sheet until browned and crisp.

Enjoy salmon cakes with an avocado pesto mixture, tartar sauce, or your favorite dipping sauce!
