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. "

I made this tonight with leftover salmon from last night - Awesome! I had a lot of dill spices left on it and added cilantro instead of parsley (as that is what I had in my fridge) and only had 1.5cups of Panko crumbs. Loved it and kids too (the cilantro and dills from the leftovers made the huge punch in flavour)

Way too dry...

I must preface this by saying that I'm not a fan of salmon. However, I know this is a good fish with lots of healthy nutrients and this recipe seemed much less awful than the one my mother made. I went into this very hopeful. I made these with white bread crumbs because that's all I had; everything else was followed to the letter. There was very little flavor and what little there was was flat. I am not sure I would make these again. However, if I did I would reduce the amount of bread crumbs, add more seasonings, and 2 eggs..

simple to make
Great, tasty and 2 year old loved it!

I made this last night and followed the recipie except that I used only 1 cup of breadcrumbs and honey dijon mustard. It had excellent taste and moisture! My two year old thought it was amazing! He kept asking for more, and was making his "yum,yum" sound with every bite. I will definately make this inexpensive meal again. Also I served this with sauted baby bok choy in garlic with mushrooms and red peppers. Delicious!

Not too bad

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


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!!
