Mini Huon Salmon Cakes
10 Minutes
30 Minutes


  • 300g Fresh Huon Salmon
  • 1 Cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Chives, roughly chopped
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Lemon
  • Oil - for deep frying


  1. 1

    Line a baking tray with baking paper
    Place the salmon, ½ the panko crumbs, garlic, chives, egg and the zest from the lemon in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until just combined. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Place the extra panko crumbs on a plate.
    Roll the salmon mix into small balls about 1 tablespoon in size, then roll the balls in the extra panko crumbs. Arrange on the baking tray and chill in the fridge until ready to cook.

  3. 3

    Add enough oil in a medium saucepan to reach a depth of 5cm. Heat to 190°C over medium-high heat (when the oil is ready a cube of bread will turn golden in 10 seconds). Add 4 salmon cakes to the oil and cook, turning occasionally, for 3-4 minutes or until golden.

  4. 4

    Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat, in 3 more batches, with the remaining cakes, reheating the oil between batches.
    Serve on a tray with lemon wedges or even mayonnaise on the side.
