I served mine with a poached egg on top, added much needed moisture since the recipe called for WAY too many breadcrumbs...
Easy Salmon Cakes
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.

This recipe "as is" not very good. Definitely too much bread crumbs...I would do 1 cup of bread crumbs, 2 cans of salmon and 2 eggs next time. The Dill Sauce is excellent!! I could put that on anything!!
I took someone's advice and used 1 cup breadcrumbs instead of 1 3/4 cups and thought it tasted very good. I also added a second celery stalk. These were a delicious, healthy, and filling dinner, especially with the dill sauce.
A tip to those seeking more calcium and Omega-3s, I highly suggest leaving the bones and skin in. The bones crush easily between your fingers, and the skin breaks apart nicely - you'll never even taste it.
I just was re-reading this recipe after making it for dinner tonight, and realized I omitted the egg and mustard! I'm actually pretty shocked about that, because I thought this recipe was the best salmon patty recipe I have ever made (and I've been making them for 20+ years)! My husband
who doesn't even like fish said that this one was a winner.
It was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside (I think it is vital that the breadcrumbs be fresh and fine). The dill sauce was perfect for it!
I will be making these again and again!
I used two cans of salmon. If I make these again I will use real fillets. The skin, bones and smell were pretty gross. I also used spicy chipotle panko bread crums. Instead of celery I sauteed garlic with the onions. After putting them together I wasnt expecting to like them. Although slightly dry, (should have used a second egg), these were pretty darn tasty. My husband and even my 10 year old liked them. I think the spicy panko gave it a really nice punch.
