Salmon Parmesan Cakes

 ‘Your best teacher is your last mistake’


OK….I made them for dinner but I ate one already.  It was the last one I made and it was smaller than the others so it didn’t make it in the photo.  🙂 My family has been making these for as long as I can remember.  We always loved when our Mama or Nanny made these, probably because the ketchup came out and my sister and I were ketchup junkies.  She used to squeeze it into her mouth like I do with whipped topping.

The are very simple to prepare.  For a lighter version spray a muffin pan with cooking spray and bake. They will still be great just not as crispy.:)

Stuff you need:

  • 2  1/2-3 cups salmon, finely flaked (equivalent to 2 cans, drained, bones and skin removed)
  • 1 cup panko crumbs
  • 1/3 cup roasted red pepper
  • 1/4 cup parmesan, grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • olive oil

 How To Do It:

  • Mix all ingredients together in large mixing bowl
  • Shape into 3″ cakes
  • Add olive oil to cover bottom of large skillet
  • Set burner to Medium-HI and cook cakes until brown and crispy on both sides
  • Place on paper towel lined plate and let cool
  • Put them in a pretty serving dish 🙂

Normally I add green onions but (smacking head) I forgot.  We like ours with ketchup but I’m thinkin’ maybe a sweet Asian chili sauce or even a spicy sriracha may be pretty good too.

Enjoy.  Have a fabulous day 🙂
