Shredded Potato Salmon Cakes

Shredded Potato Salmon Cakes


"Delicious salmon cakes made with potatoes and the added color of red bell pepper and green onion. I came up with the idea for this recipe out of pure laziness. I didn't want to wait for potatoes to boil! It turned out great and definitely became the overall favorite. I enjoy a simple garlic mayonnaise to accompany the cakes but you can pretty much use whatever you desire."

  1. Squeeze as much liquid from the potatoes as you can, and place in a large bowl. Beat the eggs with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning, and mix with the potatoes. Mix in salmon, green onions, capers, red bell pepper, banana peppers, mushrooms and bread crumbs. Form into about 12 patties about 3/4 inch thick.
  2. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the patties for about 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels quickly before serving. Try to fry all the patties at one time, otherwise the mixture becomes stiff.

Really, really good!!! Similiar to most recipies, this one is flexible so I used 3 eggs. Because I didn't have freshly cooked salmon (which would have been wonderful), I used 3 cans of Sockeye and used some fresh herbs..also I used lemmon pepper..and that made a big difference. What really grabbed my guests...I served this dish with Mango Salsa!!! Wow!

We really liked this one. Following another reviewer's suggestion, I used 2 cans of salmon so it was super easy to prepare and I did not have to get anything special from the grocery store. This is a terrific mid-week meal. I do not have italian seasoning so I used oregano, basil, salt and pepper. I also made a spicy mayonnaise dipping sauce by adding cayenne, salt, pepper and some juice from the capers to some mayo.


Delicious! I left the mushrooms out as one suggested and I used a bag of OreIda shredded potatoes - just thawed and mixed in. I did also add a little lemon pepper - very tasty. My two little ones - age 2 and 5 loved them too. They used ketchup to dip, my husband and I liked the suggested dip of Mayo, cayenne, salt, pepper, and juice from jar of capers. Thanks for sharing this one. I just had some leftover grilled salmon I wanted to use for something different.
