- 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Fish cakes
- 1 lb cooked salmon
- 1/2 cup cooked fresh corn kernels
- 1/4 cup minced shallots
- 1 tsp fresh lemon zest

To make the tartar sauce, in a bowl, combine mayonnaise, pickle, mustard, lemon juice, sugar and liberally season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, flake salmon. Add corn, shallots, lemon zest, dill, egg, paprika, and season liberally with salt and pepper and use a fork to combine. Form mixture into 6 patties, pressing together firmly. Place on a plate and refrigerate.
In a deep frying pan over medium-high heat, add 2” oil. When oil shimmers, gently dredge fish cakes in panko, then place into pan. Cook each side until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Using 2 spatulas, carefully turn over onto second side and cook until golden brown, another 3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and let rest. Serve with tartar sauce and lemon wedges.
