Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 cake and 1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise)

Chilling the patties for these salmon croquettes keeps them from falling apart when you cook them in the skillet. The lemon-caper mayonnaise -- used here instead of commercial tartar sauce -- is also great with other fish.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare flavored mayonnaise, combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl; cover and chill.

Step 2

To prepare salmon cakes, heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and celery; sauté 4 minutes or until tender. Combine onion mixture, 1/2 cup crackers, mustard, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, salmon, and egg in a medium bowl. Divide salmon mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Coat each patty with 1 tablespoon crackers. Cover and chill 20 minutes.

Step 3

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add patties; cook for 5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve the salmon cakes with flavored mayonnaise.
