  • 2 (7.5 oz cans) wild salmon, skinless and boneless, well-drained and flaked
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil for frying


  • In a large bowl, combine the salmon, eggs, lemon juice, garlic, onion, parsley, mustard, salt, thyme, and black pepper.
  • Brush the olive oil over a double-burner griddle (or two large skillets). Heat over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes.
  • Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup per cake, transfer the salmon cakes to the griddle.
  • Cook about 3 minutes on each side, until well-browned and crispy, lowering heat to medium if griddle becomes too hot. Serve immediately.
