  • 1 can salmon (6 ounces), drained
  • 1/2 cup cracker meal or dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  • Mixed greens, for serving
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 5-10 fresh chives, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper


In a medium size bowl, gently mix the salmon and cracker meal. Mix in the egg, bell pepper and dill. If the mixture is too wet, mix in a bit more cracker meal. Form the mixture into five 2-inch patties.

In a medium size skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the salmon cakes and cook until golden-brown, 3-4 minutes on each side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool before serving to your pup.

For people’s portions only, arrange the salmon cakes on a plate with the mixed greens. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and chives; season with salt and pepper. Serve with the salmon cakes.
