This salmon cakes recipe makes a delicious entrÃ©e for dinner. Canned salmon is inexpensive, and it is something that can be kept on the shelf to have on hand for a quick and easy dinner. One of the store chains offers my favorite brand of salmon on sale every three to four months - two cans for $3. I stock up when it's on sale, and have this favorite on my shelf to enjoy.
My salmon cakes recipe is so easy to make; it would be a nice recipe to teach a child. Since mayonnaise is used as the binding ingredient, instead of a raw egg, it is safe even if they take a taste. Cooking with children is a fun and educational experience. These shared times will make wonderful memories for both of you.

Gather the ingredients to make this salmon cakes recipe:
1 can of pink Alaska salmon (14.75 oz. size can)
3/4 tsp. seafood seasoning (more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup breadcrumbs or crushed cracker crumbs
5 tbsp. mayonnaise (approximate)
3/4 cup flour
butter or margarine and olive oil
Open one can of pink Alaska salmon, and empty it into a medium size bowl. With a fork, break up the salmon, and remove any skin and bones.
Measure flour onto a piece of wax paper or a small plate.
Stir the seafood seasoning and Worcestershire sauce into the salmon.
Make breadcrumbs, or crushed cracker crumbs, and stir it into the salmon. (Approximately 12 round style crackers will make 1/2 cup of crumbs.)
Stir 5 tablespoons of mayonnaise into the salmon. Stir until well blended. Add more if needed; you need enough mayonnaise to moisten all ingredients so they will stick together when forming the cakes.
Divide salmon into equal size portions.
Form into cakes, place in the flour and turn over so both sides are coated with flour.
Place butter or margarine and olive oil into a sautÃ© pan, and turn on a medium heat. The amount needed will depend on the type of pan you use and whether the pan is stainless steel or non-stick.
Place the floured salmon cakes in the sautÃ© pan, and cook until brown on both sides.
Serve the salmon cakes with your favorite sides and enjoy. I hope your family will enjoy this delicious salmon cakes recipe.
