Based on the comments so far I altered the recipe slightly: I used 15oz of salmon from a pouch so it was already boneless/skinless, substituted 1 cup of Panko bread crumbs for the 1 3/4 cups of whole wheat crumbs, added 1tbsp of light mayo and the juice of 1/2 lemon to the mixture (other ingredients as recipe directs). I then browned the patties for a few minutes on both sides before transferring them to a baking sheet then finishing them at 450 for 11-12 minutes - they were great! The dill sauce was a perfect topper, I substituted smart balance sour cream for the non-fat yogurt and it was delicious.

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.

As with most of the others I substituted, cilatro for parsley, and used less bread crumbs! They were really tasty! Looking forward to having these again soon.
I made this strictly by the recipe but the salmon patties fell apart when turning them over onto a baking sheet. I used the amount of bread crumbs, egg, salmon, oil as required. It was a mess. I ended up adding more water and some melted butter in the last half. This worked well..
I'm always on the lookout for healthy recipes and this one fit the bill nicely. I used rolled oats (cooked before incorporating, as I couldn’t find whole-wheat breadcrumbs or whole-grain crackers at the grocery store). I think this may have helped prevent the dryness others complained about (and I also added a little milk per other’s suggestions). My guy wasn’t too excited about the prospect of eating salmon, but he commented that this was the “best tasting salmon” he ever had. Also, I recommend making the dill sauce to go with it. It really does enhance the flavor of the cakes. The only thing I did differently with the sauce was use full-fat mayo as opposed to reduced (which I dislike, greatly). All in all, this was a fantastic dish-one that I will be making again.
Genuinely easy. Used a food processor for the veggies, and added a bit of fresh thyme and some coriander. Great moist texture using no-drain package of salmon.
