  • 1 6-oz can wild salmon
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons seasoned panko (or gluten-free)
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • olive oil spray
  • lemon wedges (for serving)


Combine the salmon, egg, panko, hot sauce, mayonnaise, mustard and scallions in a medium bowl and mix. Heat your mini waffle maker and spray with oil. Place 1/4 cup at a time and press down until the light shuts off, or the edges are browned and crisp- 3 to 4 minutes. Serve over a bed of greens and squeeze lemon over the top. If desired, make the remoulade and drizzle on top. Also great on potato buns! Optional remoulade sauce: combine light mayo, lemon juice and capers and serve over salmon cakes.


No waffle iron? Make them on a skillet, about three minutes per side. Or air fry them at 400F for 6 to 8 minutes.
