I love salmon and have been hoping to find a good weeknight dinner recipe using canned boneless skinless sockeye since it's much less expensive than fresh salmon filet. This was a *total* home run. I followed the instructions exactly the first time, but in subsequent rounds I have started to omit the onion and saute the patties in a minute amount of butter brushed on both sides (less than 1 tsp. per patty). I think it helps the patties stick together to let the mixture sit for ten minutes so the breadcrumbs can absorb a bit of moisture , but the staying-together issue has been a little hit or miss for me. I didn't make the sauce, I was happy with the patties and a simple salad on their own. I also tried this with chopped raw shrimp and it was awesome, too. This kind of find is exactly why I love EatingWell!
