Boy oh boy do I have loads of treats for you today. First let’s start with this beautiful little salmon cake slider, shall we? These perfectly fried beauties are my new obsession and I’m sure you can see why. They have a ridiculous amount of flavor in those little cakes and the spicy mayo just amplifies the taste that much more. I was lucky enough to whip these up with my oh-so awesome cousin last weekend on a leisurely Saturday. I’m pretty sure she’s about 50% responsible for the awesomeness that you see here (ok maybe more like 65%, but don’t tell her that ok? Wouldn’t want her getting a big head or anything… 😉

And what do I spy in the back there? Why I think that might just be a shiny new KitchenAid 5-Speed Diamond Blender… Did I mention I’m giving away one of them today? More on that in a second though.

A platter of these is absolutely irresistible….

I don’t think I’ve told you all this before, because I’m a cook and I’m supposed to love allll aspects of cooking, but sometimes I really hate prep. All that chopping and dicing and mincing can get kind of exhausting, especially when your dealing with peppers and celery and salmon. That’s exactly which this blender has become my new best friend. Not only does this blender make a killer smoothie, it actually chops things for you. For real, it chops all your veggies up into perfect little pieces, better than anything I could ever do by hand. Making these salmon cake sliders was so easy, I can’t even describe to you the ease.

Talk about a smart appliance, am I right?

You absolutely have to make these sliders for the Super Bowl this Sunday, whether you’re hosting a party or not even watching the game. They are SO flavorful and hands-down the perfect tailgating food. Enough with the chips and dip (at least until I share my favorite one later this week)!

Salmon Cake Sliders with Spicy Mayo

Salmon Cake Sliders with Spicy Mayo

Yield: 8 large sliders
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Crispy, flavorful salmon cakes make the perfect two to three-bite sliders for any party.


Salmon Cakes

  • 18 oz salmon, cooked and cooled
  • 1/4 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into large chunks
  • 1/3 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into large chunks
  • 2 stalks celery and cut into large chunks
  • 1/3 cup parsley
  • 1 1/4 cups breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp crab boil seasoning
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp capers, drained
  • Frying oil
  • Salad greens
  • 8 slider buns, cut in half and toasted

Spicy Mayo

  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/3 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • Salt & pepper


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the spicy mayo. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  2. Add peppers, celery and parsley to a KitchenAid Diamond Blender and pulse on the chop setting until the ingredients come together and the veggies are minced. Add the salmon and pulse a couple more times until the salmon is broken down but not mushy.
  3. Pour the contents of the blender into a large bowl. Stir in the breadcrumbs, eggs, seasoning, lemon juice, hot sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper and capers. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the chilled salmon mixture from the refrigerator and form thick 2 to 3-inch cakes (depending on the size of your slider buns).
  5. Heat 1-inch of oil in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Working in small batches, fry the salmon cakes for approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the cakes to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  6. To assemble the sliders, add the salmon cakes to the bottom halves of the slider buns. Spoon a generous Tbsp of the sauce on top of each cake and finish with some salad greens. Top with the other halves of the slider buns and serve immediately.
