Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Gently lay cakes in skillet and cook until golden brown and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes, turning cakes
halfway through. Drain on paper towels and serve with lemon wedges.

Salmon Cakes Ingredients – How to Serve Salmon Patties
The easiest way to serve these is straight from the skillet with a simple side salad, an extra sprig or two of dill, and some lemon wedges. But they’re also delicious topped with a simple Greek yogurt sauce made with lemon juice and chopped capers, sandwiched between a hamburger bun slicked with garlicky mayo, flaked onto a grain bowl, or served with crackers. Leftovers can be eaten atop a salad for lunch, or stuffed inside a pita pocket.
