A quick and easy way to have a fantastic and new seafood night! Serve over a slightly wilted kale or spinach salad or as a side with a stir-fry. If you’re cooking from your pantry, you can use 15 ounces of canned skinless, boneless salmon in place of the fresh.


  • 1 lb. fresh salmon fillet or 1 (15 oz.) can skinless, boneless salmon
  • 3 Tbsp. canola oil, divided
  • ⅓ cup minced red onion
  • ⅓ cup minced green pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 tsp. Sriracha
  • Pepper to taste
  • ⅓ cup cornmeal
  • ⅓ cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt


  1. Set broiler to high. Broil salmon, turning once, until it reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145ºF (4-5 minutes per side). Once salmon is cool, peel off skin (if applicable) and discard.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion and pepper and sauté until soft (5-8 minutes). Add garlic and sauté until fragrant (30 seconds). Remove pan from heat and let cool.
  3. Flake salmon into small pieces. Gently stir in remaining ingredients except oil. Using ¼ cup measure, shape mixture into patties.
  4. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon cakes and cook, turning once, until golden brown and warmed through (3-5 minutes per side).
