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. "

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!!

Very tasty dinner!

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.

Easy to make, good source of Omega-3s
Best Salmon Cake Recipe EVER - even with a HUGE mistake!

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!

tasty, healthy
