Salmon Cakes with Dill Sauce

Delicious and filling salmon cakes that are sure to please.



  1. Sauté onion and red pepper in olive oil until tender. Drain salmon and put in a mixing bowl. And onion and red pepper mixture to salmon.
  2. Chop 1 sprig of the dill and add it to the salmon mixture, along with the breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, egg, juice of 1 lemon and seasoning.
  3. Make 4 even patties from the mixture and cook on a griddle pan (with a tiny bit of cooking spray like Pam) for about 6 minutes on each side.
  4. To make the dill Sauce, combine sour cream, juice of the other lemon and the rest of the chopped dill in a small bowl and mix well. Season to taste with salt and a little hot sauce, if you like.
  5. Serve sauce on the side or right on top of the salmon cakes!

Cakes did not stay together but will try again because they still tasted great!
Pretty yummy! I cut the recipe in half for 2 of us. If you do this, use a medium egg.

I have a very simular recipe, called Salmon croquet. It only requires the Canned Pink Salmon Chopped onion italian bread crumbs (or plain whatever you have) yellow corn meal one egg don't pour the water off the salmon use it for moisture.(make sure to debone the canned Salmon and take off the skin, if it grosses you out like me.) Mix all together and fry in Olive Oil(pam spray if you desire) same time as above or until desired goldeness. THEY ARE DELICIOUS! Me and hubby have them for breakfast with Rice, and eggs. WONDERFUL!!
