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. "

Many thanks to my USA friends for some awesome menus

Easy Entertaining

These were easy and delicious. They are a great dish for entertaining, too. They look very elegant and perfect to make ahead. I'm going to add something more for flavour next time - this is an easy recipe to adapt to your tastes. It's a dry dish and the sauce was essential. Maybe if I increase the veggies in it it will be more moist.

Easy, yummy, elegant, simple,

I would give the Salmon Cakes five stars...used parsley flakes rather than fresh. would make this again.

Loved it but had to modify the recipe a little.

My husband and I really enjoyed the salmon cakes. We live in Southern California so we had leftover grilled salmon (we grill all year). I cut back to one cup of bread crumbs since I noticed that was a common thread in reviews. I also added a jalapeno pepper that was diced into very small pieces. When I mixed all the ingredients, the mixture would not hold together so I added an extra egg and it was the perfect texture.

One of our favorites!

This is a great light dinner. I have to make a substitution because I've never been able to find a 7 ounce can of salmon in our area. I use 2 - 5 ounce cans and less bread crumbs. I also use the whole egg instead of just the egg white.

It's easy to keep the ingredients for this dish on hand with canned salmon
This was dinner last Friday night. Awesome!
