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. "

I make something similar to this based on my mom's recipe. Doesn't include the Dijon mustard, and adds a little evaporated milk (I use the skim variety these days), which helps keep the patties moist. The thai sweet chili sauce is a thought -- I love it on so many other dishes. But this recipe as written, with a reduction in bread crumb content, is great. As for the sodium in canned salmon, I rinse my canned salmon and let it "drip dry" in a large strainer to get some of the salt out of it. Then I replace the salt with other ingredients -- a little Mrs. Dash herb and garlic does a great job. Also, I don't use mayo in my dill sauce; Greek yogurt is a great base for this sauce, and it doesn't need any mayo to make it better. Gotta go buy some ingredients and make this dish for my dinner.

I'll use other oil (Canola?) no mustard and no dill. I don't like the flavor of them, even though olive oil is probably the healthiest. Crumbs from the crust have more fiber, so it's good to use them. The bones in canned salmon are edible and rich in calcium so I'd use them. I lost 20 pounds just by eliminating desserts and jams with sugar, but I need to lose about 60 more. I was addicted to sugar, but it doesn't bother me much to do w/o it now. It's a little bit of a struggle, when I do a week's grocery shopping, but I buy 3 slices of watermelon and eat that when I get home.
Any recipe calling for all purpose or any other white flour, I plan to replace with whole wheat pastry flour and hope it works.

I made this recipe and it was a disappointment. It calls for way too much breadcrumb and the cooking time is a bit too long. I will try it again but with less than half of the breadcrumb and I hope that solves the problem. It honestly felt as if I as eating dried toast. Yuk.
