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. "

OMG, it was so delicious! I LOVE it!!! I divided the recipe in half, used 1/2 cup double bran fresh crumbs (1 1/2 pieces of bread), 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley (I didn't have fresh) and about 1/2 tablespoon low-fat mayonaise. I started to preheat the oven, but changed my mind, and here is what I did: brushed the non-stick pan with few drops of olive oil (you may use cooking spray) and cooked it covered on medium-low for about 20 minutes, turning once.

Although I cut the breadcrumbs, added a little more egg and mustard, and some thyme and fried them (I know but I knew they would be drier in the oven), I found these to be too dry.

Too much bread crumbs still even though I cut it down to cup. Patties would not stick together. Did not taste salmon at all.

I made this with the following modifications, and it came out fantastic: - 12 oz salmon (because that's what came in two cans) - kosher salt to taste - added fresh dill and green onions to the salmon mixture, in addition to everything else the recipe calls for - used only 1/2 a beaten egg, but added approximately 1 heaping tbsp. light mayo to moisten the mixture. My mixture was very dry before this addition. - did not pan-fry at all; instead, just baked the cakes for 17 or so minutes - used only 1/2 c. or so bread crumbs

This recipe was great... The second time I made them I only used half of the breadcrumbs in the salmon cakes and used the second half to coat them just before cooking...
