Salmon Cake Recipe

I’m on my second challenge for the September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge hosted by Kimberly at Being A Wordsmith.  The goal is to post on the challenge for the even day listed throughout the month of September.  I’m accepted the challenge from Kimberly, us Sapphire girls must stick together.  Saturday’s challenge was to Share some of your favorite recipes, DIY projects or lifestyle tips.  I know I’m a little late, but my birthday was yesterday and I decided not to blog.  

I love Salmon Cakes, especially when I have fresh parsley in the garden, so I decided to share my recipe. They are delicious!  I served Salmon Cakes at a dinner party a while ago and they got rave reviews.  I made them again today.  Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 can of Pink Salmon  (It’s the only Salmon I use)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 chopped medium white onion
  • 2/3 cup of cracker crumbs  (I use Ritz Vegetable)
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley
  • cooking oil 
  • Old Bay Seasoning

Drain the salmon.  Flake the meat in a medium size bowl.  Melt the butter in a large skillet over low heat so it doesn’t scorch.  Add the onions and cook until tender.  

In a medium size bowl, add the onions, cracker crumbs, eggs, parsley and flaked salmon.  Mix well (I use my hands) and shape into patties.    

Over medium heat, heat oil.  Sprinkle patties with a little Old Bay on both sides.  Cook patties in oil until brown. Turn the patties over and brown the other side.  Yummy!  If you’re a salmon lover, you won’t be disappointed.  



  1. I'm definitely going to have to print out this recipe.  My mom used to make salmon cakes when I was younger.  Loved them.  It's been years since I've had any.

  2. I haven't had salmon cakes in so long!!! I definitely have to make some now lol! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  3. I love salmon cakes, and the only difference in my recipe from your is instead of Bay Seasoning, I use Worcestershire Sauce.  My kids always loved salmon cakes, and my husband loves eating them, even cold!

  4. A Belated Happy Birthday, Rhonda! 29 right? Hope you got lots of presents and cake!

    And thank you for the recipe. I love, love, love salmon — well almost all fish but unfortunately no one else in my family does! I may have to try these and see if I can freeze them as it would certainly be too much for just me. Hope you have a great week!

    • Thank you for the Happy Birthday wish.  Yes, I am 29 again and again, lol.  I doubled the recipe, which is why I have so many here.  If you use one can, you will have a few for left overs.  I've never tried freezing them.  Let me know how that works for you. 

  5. Rhonda! Great share, can't wait to try this 🙂

  6. Thank you for sharing this Salmon Cake recipe on #SSEDBC. I buy pink salmon in the can from Sam's Club all the time. This is perfect for it. Glad you took time to enjoy your birthday.

    • Hi Kimberly.  I did take time to enjoy my day, it was nice being away from the computer.  The pink salmon is the best and the only kind I use.  It's perfect in the recipe.  #SSEDBC. 

  7. I'm suddenly hungry for salmon cakes.
