Easy Salmon Cakes Recipe

  • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon, drained
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. In a large mixing bowl, place 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs. Set aside remaining 1/2 cup. Add eggs, parsley, green onions, dill weed, lemon juice and black pepper. Mix well.
  2. Add salmon and mix with hands, breaking up salmon into small pieces. Form into 8 patties; each about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Place remaining 1/2 cup bread crumbs on a plate and dip both sides of the salmon cakes into crumbs.
