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.

By far the best dinner i've had all week (it's friday.) I took the advice of previous posters, cut the bread crumbs in half and used half of the water that was in the can of salmon. I had absolutely no problem with dryness at all. Not a huge fan of celery, so i used shredded carrot instead, and i added some corn. It turned out so good! I can't believe that i made something so yummy! Will definately be making over and over again...

This is good but if you want super easy, super quick...just use one can of salmon, about 8 crushed saltines (I use wheat saltines) and one beaten egg. Mix just enough to distribute the crackers and egg, form patties. Makes about 4 per can of salmon. This is my standby meal on a busy night. My mother always served these with rice and peas.

Instead of fewer breadcrumbs or extra egg - I need all the fiber and as little cholesterol as I can get - just don't drain the liquid! And I have some recipes that puree the canned fish with the skin and bone for maximum nutrition.

My husband and I loved it. I agree that it was a bit too dry so next time I too will add more eggs (I used egg beaters) and less bread crumbs.

I'm not always the biggest fan of salmon so I was a little leary of trying this, but I need to start eating more fish. I was pleasantly surprised. It was very easy to make and very good. Even my 1 year old ate one. I agree that they are a little dry so I am going to try to add an extra egg next time.
