  • Pop the canned salmon open and drain out the liquid with the help of a mesh strainer. Keep the strained salmon aside.
  • Meanwhile, warm up a skillet over medium heat, add about ½ tsp extra virgin olive oil. Allow the oil to become moderately hot.
  • Add the chopped onions, celery & red bell pepper to the moderately hot oil. Saute for 2 mins until just a little soft. Refer to the Video below.
  • Add the chopped garlic. Saute for 1 min.
  • Next add the capers & saute for another minute. The veggies should not be very soft or mushy, they should have the crunch & bite left. To be more precise they must be al dente.
  • Once, they are done, keep them aside & allow them to cool down.
  • Now, add the sauteed veggies, mayo, mustard, old bay seasoning, crushed pepper, salt to the drained salmon & mix with the help of a spatula. 
  • Next, add the flour just to bring the mixture together. Mix with the help of a spatula.
  • Add the chopped parsley & few drops of lemon juice (if you want to) and mix again well with the help of a spatula.
  • Wet or grease your palm with few drops of water or oil. Scoop out about a lemon size ball of the canned salmon mixture, give it a round shape first & than flatten it with the help of your fingers by gently pressing it. Refer to the video below.
  • Shape all the patties until you are all done with the salmon mixture. 
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add oil and allow the oil to become moderately hot.
  • Place the patties in a single layer & fry each side until golden. Do not over crowd the pan otherwise you'll have a tough time to flip them.
  • Serve hot with your favorite dip. Enjoy!



  1. Measuring cup used, 1 cup = 240 ml & 1 teaspoon = 5 ml.
  2. SALMON PATTIES SAUCE RECIPE: Whisk together ½ cup mayo + 2 tbsp dijon mustard paste. Garnish with chopped parsley (optional).
  3. Always wet or grease your palm with water or oil. This will help in easy & quick patty formation.
  4. Never over cook the veggies. They won't taste good.
  5. You may skip the capers if you do not have some in your pantry.
  6. You may also swap the parsley with cilantro if you want to.
  7. If you love spicy food add some finely chopped thai chilies or Indian green chilies or may be chili powder. I added none.
  8. Always fry the Canned salmon patties over medium heat for that crispy outer crust & crumbly tender interior.
  9. Try to buy wild caught Salmon. They always taste better!
  10. You may increase the amount of the spices & the flour as per your preference.
  11. 1 can of Salmon (the weight mentioned in the ingredients section) will yeild about 10-12 small Patties.
  12. Do not be tempted to swap the fresh parsley with dried parsley! It'll completely ruin the taste of the Salmon cakes. Fresh & dried varities taste way different.
