Cook Time:


  • 3 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound(s) skinless wild-caught salmon fillet
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 (about 1 pound), finely grated and squeezed firmly to remove excess water
  • 1 tablespoon(s) Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup(s) plain bread crumbs
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season salmon all over with salt and pepper then cook, flipping once, until golden brown and just cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes. Once cool, break into small flakes in a bowl, removing any bones. Add zucchini, mustard, egg and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and toss gently to combine.

  2. Form salmon mixture into 16 (3-inch) patties, coating each lightly in breadcrumbs. Heat remaining oil in large skillet over medium heat. Cook half the patties, flipping once, until deep golden brown and cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes total. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and season with salt; repeat process with remaining patties. Serve salmon cakes hot, with lemon wedges on the side.
