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'll make some for my ramadhan tonite...thanks very much
Too many breadcrumbs in this recipe. I even added an extra egg and my cakes were having a hard time holding together. Final product was a little dry and crumbly.
Canned Salmon is too high in sodium for me, so I use generic frozen salmon instead -- reduces sodium portion from salmon from 285 to 40, a big change. Once the fish is thawed, I don't dice it, but shred it by hand in to little bits. Also, lower the bread crumbs as others have suggested to 3/4 cup -- a far better salmon/bread ratio.
Instead of Dijon mustard, I like the impact of spicy brown mustard instead. I once used "Mae Ploy" Thai Sweet Chili Sauce instead of the mustard, and that was a huge hit. If you go that route, nix the dill sauce and go with a tomato/pepper sauce instead. Awesome.
Also, I don't have the patience to dice the onion, so i use a coarse cheese grater and shred them. It doesn't work too well with celery, but the onion is very fine and mixes very well.
I love this recipe, very easy to make. Did the whole cooking on the stovetop, made into only 5 cakes so they all fit in the pan at once. After I browned one side I lovered the temp and put on a lid and cooked through about 20 min. Also made with oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs and we ate it with no fat Chobani Greek yogurt to dip.This yogurt is thick and perfect for dipping, no spices needed.
