I added a little grated carrots and red pepper. Yummy. My 6 and 4 year old kids loved it too. Also used spelt breadcrumbs but had to add a little regular breadcrumbs to make it stay together better.
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.

I made my own bread crumbs using 3 1/2 slices of whole grain bread, and I didn't have any problems with it being too dry...probably ended up being about 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs total. I also added some cayenne pepper to zing it up and squeezed some fresh lemon juice on top before serving. Really delicious with the dill sauce (recommend adding more lemon, i.e. juice from 1 whole lemon, and more dill) and on top of mixed baby greens with a few fresh veggies.
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)
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..
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!
