Use some pantry staples to make these quick salmon cakes. Did you know that canned salmon is an excellent source of calcium, protein, and healthy fats! Pair with a salad or another non-starchy veggie. Can be cooked in a pan, air fryer, or Galanz!

Optional dressing. Combine all the ingredients and pour on top of each patty before serving


  • Drain out most but not all the liquid from the salmon. Mash the canned salmon in a bowl or a ziploc baggie, try to separate it in as small of pieces as possible. Then add the lemon juice, mustard, onion, seasoning, and ground flax. Mix well. Mixing in a baggie greatly reduces mess!
  • Form the mixture into 3 patties, and freeze for 5 minutes -this is optional but will help the patties from falling apart while cooking. I did not freeze mine and they held together just fine!
  • If cooking in a pan, heat up oil first on medium high heat, cook about 2-3 minutes/side.
    If using air fryer cook on "fish" setting. Pair the salmon cake with a salad or your favorite non-starchy veggie.
