I made these Waffled Crab Cakes a few years ago and thought I’d try switching it up with salmon. Plus, I wanted to try them out on my Mini Dash Waffle Maker. I made four small salmon cakes, but you can make them bigger if you have a larger waffle iron. I love how extra crispy they get with all that surface area.

These healthy salmon cakes are an excellent way to get your omega-3s, which can lower your risk of heart disease. They’re also high in protein and low in carbs. If you want to make these salmon cakes gluten-free, use gluten-free panko.

How do you make salmon cakes from scratch?

These salmon cakes aren’t called “easy” for nothing! Just mix the seven ingredients in a bowl, put a one-fourth cup of the mixture on the waffle iron, and cook for about three to four minutes. Like I said – easy!

You could also double or triple this waffled salmon cake recipe if you needed to feed more people or wanted leftovers. To reheat, just pop the waffles in the toaster.

How to serve salmon cakes

There are a few different ways to serve these salmon cake waffles:

  • Over mixed greens or spinach with lemon juice or remoulade as a dressing
  • As a sandwich on a potato bun
  • As a main dish with vegetables on the side

If you want to add a sauce, these salmon patties are delicious with a simple remoulade sauce. To make it, combine light mayo, lemon juice, and capers and serve over the salmon.
