Gluten-Free Salmon Cakes---

Fishcakes are great to eat, cheap to make, and amazingly all the ingredients can all be found in your pantry.This recipe comes from a time when money was an issue, and it was necessary to feed a large family as economically as possible. This recipe uses canned salmon and tastes as delicious as fresh salmon. It is a great "go to" meal, it uses salmon, onion, potato, and egg.

Let's make some salmon fishcakes!


  • 4--14 oz. cans  Pink Salmon, drained
  • 5 lb. bag red potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 vidalia onions, diced
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups gluten free all purpose flour (we used gluten-free Bisquick)
  • 2 cups oil
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. pepper


  • In a large pot, add potatoes and onions and bring to a boil until potatoes are cooked and tender. Drain.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add drained canned salmon (make sure to pick out any bones), eggs, potatoes and onions mixture, flour, salt and pepper.  

  •  Mix everything until it's combined  really well.

  • Form hand size patties (about 4 oz.), and freeze for about 30 minutes.

  • In a large frying pan, heat the oil to medium to high heat. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes on one side, flip and cook the other side about the same, until golden brown.
