Salmon cakes can certainly be keto-friendly if you just tweak a few ingredients. They make a great dinner or you can serve atop a salad for a delicious lunch. The mixture can get a little sticky, so I spray my hands with cooking spray when handling, and I use a small silicone spatula to help get them off the plate and into the fryer.

  • Whisk together mayonnaise and Sriracha in a small bowl. Place 1 tablespoon Sriracha mayo in the bowl of a food processor and refrigerate the rest until ready to use.

  • Add salmon, almond flour, egg, 1 1/2 teaspoons seafood seasoning, and green onion to the Sriracha mayo; pulse quickly for 4 to 5 seconds until ingredients are just combined, but small chunks of salmon remain. (Do not overprocess as the mixture will become mushy.)

  • Line a plate with waxed paper and spray hands with cooking spray. Form the salmon mixture into 8 small patties; transfer to a plate. Place in the refrigerator until chilled and firm, about 15 minutes.

  • Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray.

  • Remove salmon cakes from refrigerator. Mist both sides with cooking spray and gently place in the air fryer basket, working in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding.

  • Cook in the preheated air fryer for 6 to 8 minutes. Place on a serving platter and serve with remaining Sriracha mayo and a light sprinkling of Old Bay seasoning, if desired.

Cook's Note:

Keep salmon cakes warm in an oven on the lowest setting while air frying remaining cakes.

Followed recipe exactly but cooked on stove top instead. I did refrigerate more like 2 hours due to change in plans. The next time I will double the sauce and add a little old bay to that too. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Read More

This was delish! It was a simple way to use canned salmon. I had to make a couple of changes because I was out of the ingredients, but they were so similar I don't think it would change the outcome at all. I was out of mayo and siracha sauce, so replaced them with plain Greek yogurt and hot sauce. The air fryer did them well, they were drier on the outside, but still moist on the inside. I think I'm going to try in a pan on the stove to see if I can get them a bit crispy on the outside. Thank you!!! Read More
