If you are trying to boost your intake of omega-3s, try this simple favorite. It is a great way to use convenient canned (or leftover) salmon. The tangy dill sauce provides a tart balance.

"''Crumbs from the crust have more fiber, so it's good to use them. '' There is nothing true about this statement at all. "

Yummy everyone in my family loved this! I added mushroom and chives. I doubled the recipe and did not feel the need to bake it after pan frying lightly in olive oil. Will make again and again!

Great way to use leftover salmon

Excellent recipe for leftover salmon. I had 3/4 cup of salmon so cut the recipe in half which was perfect for 2 people. Used 1/2 cup of Panko breadcrumbs and 1 egg. Also added a touch of salt. Saw no need to put it in the oven. Browned patties on both sides in a saute pan, and they were perfect. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Easy and tasty
Easy is Correct!

This recipe is true to its name-easy, simple, delicious and healthy! The creamy dill dressing was also a hit with my family. Had to go back and make more. We loved it!

Kids loved it too!

I added a little grated carrots and red pepper. Yummy. My 6 and 4 year old kids loved it too. Also used spelt breadcrumbs but had to add a little regular breadcrumbs to make it stay together better.

Easy and delicious

I made my own bread crumbs using 3 1/2 slices of whole grain bread, and I didn't have any problems with it being too dry...probably ended up being about 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs total. I also added some cayenne pepper to zing it up and squeezed some fresh lemon juice on top before serving. Really delicious with the dill sauce (recommend adding more lemon, i.e. juice from 1 whole lemon, and more dill) and on top of mixed baby greens with a few fresh veggies.

Quick, easy, cheap
