  1. In a small saucepan, cover peeled potatoes with water. Bring water to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Let cool and mash.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together salmon, egg, potatoes, salt and pepper. Mold the mixture into patties (whatever size you choose). Coat both sides of the patties with flour.
  3. Heat oil over a medium-high heat in a large skillet. Fry the patties (2 or 3 at a time) on both sides until golden brown. Drain on paper towels before serving.


  • Editor's Note
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

These were very tasty. i made a few changes. i drained all the water from the potatoes and left none. i added about a tsp. of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix to the flour before coating the ...

I tried a variation of this recipe using only one large potato and some matzo meal. Even with that variation, the cakes had too much potato flavor. I find it hard to believe that you're suppose...

The patties tasted good, but they would have been even better with less potatoes. It tasted like a potato pattie instead of fish pattie.

The fish cakes did taste nice, but the preparation was a bit of a nightmare. Frying them took ages and also caused some of them to burn, it may take practice, but its not the easiest recipe in t...

This recipee was very good. I don't like a strong salmon flavor in patties and the potatoes really helped remedy this. I added a little Italian bread crumbs for more flavor and that tasted exe...
