  • 14.75 ounces canned salmon ,drained
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon lower sodium Old Bay
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs ,beaten
  • 1/4 cup flour ,plus additional as needed

For the Chili Lime Mayo (optional)

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Cholula chili lime hot sauce (or any chili lime hot sauce)


  • Mix flaked canned salmon that has been picked through for any bones, minced onion, celery salt, Old Bay, dried parsley, and a pinch of cayenne in a large bowl. Add lemon juice, two beaten eggs, and flour, mix well.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Shape the salmon mixture into six equal patties, adding additional flour as needed if the mixture keeps sticking to your hands. I added about 3 tablespoons.
  • Bake in the preheat oven for 10 minutes, turn carefully, and bake for 10 minutes more, or until golden on both sides.
  • While the salmon patties are baking, prepare the chili lime mayo by mixing together the mayonnaise and chili lime hot sauce. Drizzle over the salmon patties when serving.
