Cooking Tips

  • Even Thickness: Ensure the salmon cakes are of even thickness. This helps in uniform cooking, preventing one part from being undercooked while another is overcooked.
  • Chill Before Cooking: For better texture and to help the cakes hold their shape, refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes before air frying. This step also enhances the flavors as the ingredients meld together.

Substitutions

  • Fresh Salmon: Feel free to use fresh salmon in the place of canned pink salmon.
  • Sour Cream: Switch the egg for sour cream as a binder for these salmon patties.
  • Onions: You can use red onion instead of white onion if you prefer.

Variations

  • Bay Seasoning: Add a teaspoon of old bay seasoning for extra flavor.
  • Burgers Patties: Add these salmon patties to burger buns for a burger recipe.
  • Breadcrumbs: This recipe has almond flour to make it keto friendly but you can add regular breadcrumbs in the place of the flour if this is easier.
