  • 1 lb salmon cooked and flaked (See Note 1)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (See Note 2)
  • 3/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 cups bell peppers diced (See Note 3)
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • 2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • dash of hot sauce I use Tabasco, optional


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • tartar sauce for serving
  • lemon slices for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • In a large bowl, break the cooked salmon into bite size pieces or flake the drained and canned salmon.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and gently mix well with hands or spatula. Form into 6 patties.
  • Place the salmon patties on an oiled baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, turn and continue baking another 5 minutes until golden brown on both sides. Serve hot with lemon slices and tartar sauce.


  1. You can substitute cooked salmon that's been flaked for 2-6 oz cans of salmon. It will be less and that's OK.
  2. Feel free to substitute mayonnaise for plain Greek yogurt.
  3. I dice 1/2 each small green, red, yellow bell pepper.
