Salmon quinoa cakes is an easy salmon recipe, full of health benefits and great taste! This protein-packed, healthy salmon dinner recipe is ready to eat in just 20 minutes.


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 6 oz cans boneless, skinless wild salmon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt free lemon pepper seasoning
  • pinch of coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons oil, for frying
  • lemon wedges


  1. In a large mixing bowl, gently combine quinoa, salmon, lemon pepper, salt, dill and eggs. Divide evenly to form 6 patties.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. When oil is hot, place patties into pan and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown. (While patties are cooking prepare your arugula salad if serving.)
  3. Take patties out of pan and place on a paper towel to cool and absorb any excess oil. Squeeze lemon over salmon patties and sprinkle with additional salt to taste while still warm.
  4. Serve alongside a simple arugula salad dressed in fresh squeezed lemon and olive oil.
