NZ King Salmon Sliders

Cooking time: 30

Cooking method: Pan-fry


  • 400g NZ king salmon skinned and diced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1tsp fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2tbsp olive or canola oil
  • small mini-burger buns or round cut sourdough
  • dijon mustard
  • salad ingredients (optional)

Cooking instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix salmon, egg, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Form salmon mixture into 10 small patties. Dredge in breadcrumbs to coat all sides. In a large skillet, heat oil until hot over medium heat. Cook patties in batches until brown on both sides, about 4 minutes each batch.
  3. Drain salmon cakes on paper towel. Serve on buns with dijon mustard if desired.

Note: To kick up the flavour, add capers to the salmon mixture, or use a flavoured mayonnaise such as wasabi mayo. Create a "toppings bar" for the sliders with shredded lettuce, slices of grape tomato, capers and slices of red onion, dehydrated vegetable chips, pickles and a selection of sauces.
