Used Chicken of the Sea boneless, skinless salmon. Lovely texture, no "grey matter". Made sauce with low fat sour cream, out of yoghurt, but will try next time.

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.

I doubled the recipe but felt it needed one more egg for the double batch. Probably depends on the bread crumbs, plus I used smaller eggs. This were still great warmed up in the microwave. Just added a squeeze of fresh lemon before adding a dollop of sauce.
I especially loved the sauce and felt the yogurt makes it even better. I'm considering baking up a batch and then freezing them, thinking they could be thawed in the microwave, then finished up in a skillet. Maybe mini ones on a toothpick with the sauce would make a good appetizer as well.
I really want to try this recipe and am just beginning to live without gluten in my diet. Could someone recommend to me how I could prepare these without the breadcrumbs?
My husband and I are always looking for ways to integrate more fish into out diets, and canned salmon is an economical, easy way to do it. If you can get over the canned salmon looks, you can acutally just crush up the bones and skin and eat everything that comes out of the can - more calcium for you. I used fat free plain greek yogurt for the sauce because that's what I had in the fridge and it made the sauce super creamy. Sauce definitely makes the cakes. Yum.
I had no idea how gross canned salmon is. Picking through it to get the bones out is not for the weak of stomach. But if you can get past that icky bit, this recipe is really good, and so is the dill sauce! (P.S. All I had was prepared breadcrumbs and it worked great. Also I cooked & baked the patties in the same large cast iron pan.)
