  • 1 can wild caught salmon
  • 1/2 diced shallot (sub for onion)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoon mayo
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Drain canned salmon of water. Add to a mixing bowl and use a fork to chop it up finely
  • Dice up half a shallot
  • Inside the bowl toss in shallot, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, egg and mayo. Give a good mix
  • Next add in finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Using a heaping tablespoon form cakes in hand. I was able to get 8 cakes from this recipe
  • In a frying pan with oil on medium/high heat place salmon cakes and cook until golden brown on each side. Should take a minimum of 2-3 minutes per side.
  • When done squirt with lemon juice
  • For air fryer: preheat on 400°F and cook for 8 minutes


Is Canned Salmon Already Cooked

Yes, canned salmon is already cooked. The can is designed for the salmon to be eaten straight from the can.

Are Canned Salmon Bones Edible

Yes, you can eat the bones. Due to the process of how they cook the salmon the bones are extremely soft. I personally remove the spine but that is personal preference. After the salmon cakes are done cooking you won't know there was ever a bone there.
