Do not mix these ingredients until all ingredients are in the bowl. You can use fresh salmon or you can use a can of salmon. For fresh salmon be sure to cook the salmon first before creating your patties. Place the fresh Salmon skin side down, wipe olive oil on the salmon, and season with salt and pepper. Let the salmon bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. Once your salmon is cooked pop your salmon into the fridge for about 10 minutes to get cold.  For canned salmon, open 1 can of salmon cakes and debone the salmon. After you have deboned the salmon, pour the salmon into a bowl. Dice one half of an onion, dice one half of a red bell pepper, and one half of a green bell pepper.  Toast one slice of bread to create bread crumbs or use bread crumbs from a can. If you use a can of bread crumbs you will only need a 1/2 cup. Place those ingredients into the bowl of salmon as well. Crack an egg into the bowl of salmon as well. Add old bay seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix all of the ingredients together. Once all ingredients have been mixed together start to create your patties.

Turn on frying pan or skillet to medium heat and lightly coat the pan with olive oil. Be careful of heat because the cakes cook rather quickly. Let the cakes simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes on each side until the cakes are golden brown.
