  • 7 ounces canned salmon
  • ¼-½ tsp fine grind sea salt see notes below
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 stalk celery finely diced, about ¼ cup see notes


  • Finely dice the celery and drain the Salmon.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well. Form the salmon cakes and put them on a plate or tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Refrigerate the salmon cakes for 30 minutes.
  • When the salmon patties have been in the fridge for 20 minutes, begin preheating the Ninja Foodi. Make sure that the basket or your sear n sizzle grate is in the inner pot during the preheat time. Preheat on broil for a full 10 minutes. This prevents the salmon patties from sticking.
  • Spritz the basket or sear 'n sizzle grate with oil, place the salmon patties on the surface and broil for 5 minutes. Flip and broil another 2-3 minutes. Serve & Enjoy!


*Broil is the same as Grill on the UK Ninja Foodi models.
**If you don't have broil, use the hottest AC or bake/roast setting.
NOTE: I really recommend using the very center stalk from the celery with the leaves for the best texture and look. 
NOTE: The first 3 times I tested this recipe, I used ½ tsp of sea salt and that was perfect. However, the last time I made them, I thought they were too salty. This could be because of my own diet change and I'm picking up on the salt or perhaps I had a heavy hand the 4th time. I'm not sure, but I would go with ¼ teaspoon of salt the next time I make them.
