1. **Prepare the Salmon**: In a large mixing bowl, flake the drained salmon using a fork, removing any large bones or skin if desired.

2. **Add Ingredients**: To the bowl with the salmon, add the breadcrumbs, chopped onion, bell pepper, minced garlic, chopped parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, paprika, cayenne pepper (if using), and lightly beaten eggs.

3. **Season and Mix**: Season the mixture with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences. Gently mix all the ingredients until well combined, being careful not to overmix.

4. **Form Patties**: Divide the salmon mixture into equal portions and shape them into patties, about 1/2 inch thick. You should get approximately 6-8 patties, depending on the size you prefer.

5. **Heat the Oil**: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking.

6. **Fry the Patties**: Carefully place the salmon patties in the skillet, working in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding. Cook the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.

7. **Drain and Serve**: Once cooked, transfer the salmon patties to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

8. **Serve and Enjoy**: Serve the salmon patties hot with your favorite side dishes, such as a fresh salad, steamed vegetables, or creamy mashed potatoes. They also pair well with a dollop of tartar sauce or a squeeze of lemon juice for added flavor.
