"Simple and tasty pan-fried salmon cakes for one (or two small eaters)! Just salmon, egg, onion, and a few staples. Mix it all up, shape into patties, and you are ready to go! Great with macaroni and cheese."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Mix onion, salmon, crackers, egg, butter, lemon juice, and black pepper together in a bowl; form into 4 patties.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; fry patties in the hot oil until crispy and golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Adjust number of crackers for personal taste: more crackers equals less salmon taste, fewer means stronger salmon taste!
  • I use olive oil rather than vegetable oil.
  • Substitute the onion with 1 teaspoon onion powder, if desired.
