These air-fried salmon patties are reminiscent of classic salmon croquettes, crispy on the outside and pillowy tender on the inside. Look for canned or jarred salmon that has less than 50 milligrams of sodium per serving, and don't be afraid of varieties that have bones. They're easy to remove.

  1. Coat the basket of an air fryer with cooking spray.
  2. Drain salmon; remove and discard any large bones and skin. Place the salmon in a medium bowl. Add panko, dill, mayonnaise, mustard and pepper; stir gently until combined. Shape the mixture into four 3-inch-diameter cakes.
