Air Fryer Salmon Cakes

๐Ÿฝ Fish cakes are an easy make-ahead meal that are packed with flavor.

 

โœ… Ready in just under 15 minutes, this is a great way to repurpose canned salmon, tuna or sardines!

 

๐Ÿ“ŒThis particular recipe showcases wild Alaskan salmon which is heart-healthy, immune-boosting and protein-packed.

 

๐Ÿ”‘By using an air fryer, this makes for a crispy outside and tender inside. BUT if you don’t have an air fryer, there is an oven method below.

Macros

Serving Size: 2 cakes
  • Protein - 32.3 g
  • Carbs - 1.6 g
  • Fat - 11.8 g

Ingredients

  • 3 (6-ounce) cans wild alaskan salmon, boneless & skinless, drained
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed

Cooking Utensils

  • medium mixing bowl
  • air fryer

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in your mixing bowl.
  2. Using a 1/4 cup measurer, form 8 patties.
  3. Carefully place 1/2 the patties into the air fryer basket. Cakes will have to be done in 2 batches so don’t try to cram them in the air fryer.
  4. Set the air fryer on 400 F for 8 minutes (I did not flip them). Using a flat spatula, carefully remove from the air fryer as they will be super hot.
  5. Optional – For a golden crust add olive oil spray to a non-stick skillet and bring to medium heat. Place the fried cakes on the pan for 2 minutes and then remove from heat.
  6. Serve over a bed of greens with a ready-made tzatziki sauce. Forย training days, serve with basmati or jasmine rice.

 

Oven Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Place on baking tray and spray lightly coat with cooking spray.
  3. Bake for about 15 mins.

 

Recommendations/Substitutions

  • To ensure cakes are cooked evenly, make sure to portion out equally and make them same size.
  • Can sub almond flour for panko bread crumbs
  • Can sub egg for a flax egg: 1 tbsp flaxseed meal + 3 tbsp water
  • Can sub salmon for tuna or sardines (in water)
