Easy Salmon Fish Cakes

This is a very good way of using left over Salmon


  • 1 cup salmon
  • 1 cup cooked potatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Chopped onion
  • Lemon juice


  • Mix the salmon with the mashed potatoes en season to taste
  • Add chopped onion and lemon juice to taste
  • Form the fish cakes and roll in the crumbs, then in the beaten egg and once more in the crumbs
  • Fry the cakes in shallow oil at a medium heat to prevent burning the cakes before they are fully cooked.

I hope you enjoy these Salmon recipes. What a good way to combine healthy and good tasting food. In South Africa fresh Salmon is very expensive, so I mostly use tinned Salmon, but in all these recipes you can use fresh Salmon, but remember to adjust the seasoning as the fresh Salmon does not have any salt in it.
