  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Dash salt
  • 4 frozen salmon fillets (4 ounces each), thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. In a small bowl, mix the first seven ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Bake until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 6-8 minutes. Cool slightly; remove skin if necessary. In a small bowl, combine eggs, bread crumbs, green onions, garlic and salt. Flake salmon; add to bread crumb mixture, mixing thoroughly. Shape into twelve 2-1/2-in. patties. Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add patties in batches; cook until golden brown, 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve with dipping sauce.
