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..
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 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!
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!!
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.
