Easy Salmon Cakes with Chipotle Lime Sauce

Mouth-watering easy salmon cakes with chipotle lime sauce are the perfect meal when the family is craving crab cakes!

I love crab cakes, but they can be time-consuming to make, the ingredients are expensive, and being that they are fried they are not that healthy. So the real challenge is, how do I make a healthier and affordable version with minimal effort? Today’s recipe, of course, is the answer!

Salmon Cakes with Just Mayo

I’ve partnered up Hampton Creek to bring you this deliciously easy recipe made with my favorite Just Mayo flavor: Chipotle!

The chipotle mayo is used to bind and flavor these salmon cakes, eliminating measuring out seasonings. By using canned salmon, I found these salmon cakes to be an affordable meal.

These salmon cakes are also naturally gluten-free (and Paleo) since I used sweet potato instead of bread crumbs. Add those, plus a few other ingredients and I have a high protein meal idea.

Living in the South, I have a lot of fresh seafood available nearly year-round, which means that we eat it at least once a week. Salmon, however, can get pricey when feeding 6 of us for dinner, so this is the perfect solution to get all the Omega 3 benefits!

Salmon Cakes with Just Mayo

The first time I made these, I told my family we had salmon cakes for dinner. My daughter said: “Mom, you mean crab cakes!” When we sat down to eat, they still did not believe it was salmon. Apparently, they “don’t taste fishy at all!” she exclaimed.

Figuring out the perfect amount of seasoning can get tricky. Even though we live in the South, spice is not something that sits well with my kids. By using the Chipotle flavored Just Mayo, I eliminated all the seasoning, and it was a winner flavor for my kids.

Just Mayo has a creamy texture and bright flavor that rivals even homemade mayo. The ingredients are the type you can feel good about eating, and it comes in four tasty flavors – Original, Chipotle, Sriracha, and Garlic.

Want to kick these salmon cakes up a notch? Substitute the Sriracha flavored mayo for the Chipotle. That is the kind of adult salmon cake you are going to want to eat all the time.

Just Mayo is the easy choice for those of you with allergies or special diets since it is egg-free, soy-free, dairy-free, lactose-free, gluten-free, nut-free, non-GMO, and kosher. So if you have a lot of allergies in the house, it’s a great choice for store bought mayo.

Back to the salmon cakes. I made a quick video to show you how these salmon cakes come together in a bowl, without having to hand shape them or frying!

My mouth is watering just by talking about these Chipotle salmon cakes! I typically serve them over a bed of field greens or arugula and use a little more Just Mayo to make a sauce that compliments the flavors further.

What’s terrific about these salmon cakes is that leftovers can be packed inside a lunchbox and brought to the office. This recipe is a win-win meal for me!

Easy Salmon Cakes

Salmon Cakes with Just Mayo
  • Author: Laura Fuentes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

For the Salmon Cakes:

  • 14 ounces canned salmon, drained
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/3 cup mashed baked sweet potato (about 1 very large sweet potato)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup Just Mayo Chipotle Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

For the Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup Just Mayo Chipotle Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and grease a 12-muffin pan with oil or spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the salmon, onions, and cilantro. Add the mashed sweet potato to the mixture, and gently combine.
  3. Add eggs, Chipotle mayo, and red pepper flakes. Using your hands, mix everything so you can be sure all the salmon is thoroughly mixed in with the sweet potato.
  4. Fill each greased mini muffin tin with about 2 tablespoons worth of mixture. Press down with the back of a teaspoon (or your fingers) until it’s compacted in.
  5. Bake the salmon cakes for about 16 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack. The easiest way to remove from the muffin tin and wire rack together and then giving them a good shake.
  7. In a medium bowl, whisk to combine Chipotle Mayo, water, and lime juice.
  8. Serve salmon cakes over a bed of lettuce and drizzle with Chipotle Lime Sauce.

Dadgummit! Now, why didn’t I think to cook them in a muffin tin?? Much easier and you can make them all at once versus my pan method where I can only make a few at a time. Guess that’s why I subscribe! Good job laura!

I sure can’t wait to grab this flavored mayo at the store! 🙂 It seems like a great time saver! I used to make my own flavored mayo with my crab cakes awhile ago (before I had kids) and my husband loved it!! But now, with two kids (and one on the way), anything to help shorten my prep time in the kitchen is a winner!!

Very disappointed to find Just Mayo is made of canola oil. Many people don’t seem to know how unhealthy canola oil is. I’m excited about the recipe but not sure how to flavor since I would never use canola oil.

I’ve always been curious about canned salmon but never knew how to use it. Salmon is my fave fish, I can’t wait to try your recipe! It looks and sounds wonderful! We like to use mayo on lots of things, we mix it with ketchup (sometimes not) to dip baked fries in, we like it on sandwiches, burgers, coleslaw or potato salad, even tomato salad. I have not seen this mayo before but will definitely buy it as I have many allergies and this will be a godsend. Thank you for the tip:)

I am a mayo lover! I love all kinds of flavors but I must say that the chipotle is my favorite. I love it on any kind of sandwich. But I think my favorite guilty pleasure using mayo is getting the house mayo from a Italian place we have in my area and mixing it with their house sauce and then dipping my fries in it. Soooo good!

There’s a Steakhouse Mayo by Kraft, I think, that I love to use on steak sandwiches. I make a Philly cheese-steak style sandwich with crusty bread, provolone cheese and sliced, grilled steak.

Our family’s favorite way to use mayo is on chicken quesadillas. My 12 & 14 year old would eat this every night! I use mayo, sugar, cumin, cayenne, paprika, garlic, salt & diced jalapenos to make a delicious mayo sauce. I keep this in a squirt bottle (use an recycled mayo bottle) in the fridge along with cooked diced chicken. They can assemble anytime for a quick meal- just squirt a little of the flavored mayo onto your tortilla, add a little chicken & some cheese, fold & heat either in the microwave, in a panini press, or on the stove in a frying pan, just enough to melt the cheese! Yum!

I’m almost embarrassed to admit how much mayonnaise we use. I should learn to make it, but for now I just buy Hellman’s, when it’s on sale. Otherwise, the Meijer store brand. I can’t believe how much it is these days. Around $4 for 32 ounces – and we use a ton of it. Macaroni salad, egg salad, ham salad, potato salad, deviled eggs, dips…I have a grilled cheese recipe that uses mayo, and I usually add mayo, sour cream or plain yogurt to cakes for extra moisture.

I’m not a big mayo fan and really only use it if it’s “hidden” in a recipe. One of our favorite quick desserts is a recipe where I have used mayo in chocolate cake that cooks in the microwave. I was a bit skeptical the first time but pleasantly surprised when it chocolaty and not tasting like mayo.
I’ll have to give these salmon cakes a try too. never had salmon cakes, just crab cakes like your daughter.

YUM! But this salmon cake recipe sounds AMAZING!!! Thanks, Laura!

We’ve always been more of a Miracle Whip family, and use(d) it mostly in coleslaw, however the youngest is allergic to eggs, among many other things, and that’s not an option. We do have a jar of Just Mayo. Haven’t opened it yet.

The only think I do not like about their products is that they have two lines of Just Mayo, though most don’t realize it. One without preservatives and one with. It seems they made the one with preservatives for the “low end” stores (Walmart, Dollar General, etc.). I don’t think anyone should be eating preservatives, so that’s a little disappointing.
