So, let’s get cooking and enjoy some scrumptious fishcakes that are sure to satisfy your cravings!


  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 can of salmon, drained and flaked
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cooking spray



  1. Boil the potatoes until they’re tender. Don’t worry if you’re not a master chef, just keep them in the boiling water for around 10-15 minutes, then drain and mash them in a bowl. Easy peasy, right?
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flaked salmon, frozen peas, egg, breadcrumbs, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Don’t be shy with the seasoning, let your taste buds guide you!
  3. Combine the mashed potatoes with the salmon mixture and stir until everything is well-mixed. This is the perfect time to use your hands and get messy. Roll up your sleeves and dig in!
  4. Shape the mixture into 8-10 fishcake patties of equal size. Use your hands to make them nice and round, or experiment with other shapes if you’re feeling adventurous!
  5. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) and lightly spray the basket with cooking spray. This will ensure that the fishcakes don’t stick to the basket and will come out crispy and delicious.
  6. Place the fishcakes in the basket, making sure they don’t touch each other. If they’re too close, they won’t get crispy and might stick together. We want to avoid any fishcake drama!
  7. Air-fry the fishcakes for 8-10 minutes, flipping them over halfway through the cooking time. Keep an eye on them and make sure they’re nicely browned and crispy. If they need a bit more time, give them a couple of extra minutes until they’re just right.
  8. Serve the fishcakes hot with a side salad or your favorite dipping sauce. We love ours with tartar sauce or a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, but feel free to experiment with your own flavor combinations!

And that’s it, folks! Enjoy your scrumptious, healthy, and super easy Air-fryer Salmon Fishcakes. This recipe is perfect for a cozy dinner at home, a fun family meal, or even a party appetizer.
