I ended up having to use 1/4 cup of egg whites and reduced the bread to 1 cup. As written, I definitely don't think there was enough moisture from just the one egg. Came out great, crunchy/crispy on the outside. I served it with the Green Goddess Sauce from this site.
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.

Used Chicken of the Sea boneless, skinless salmon. Lovely texture, no "grey matter". Made sauce with low fat sour cream, out of yoghurt, but will try next time.
I doubled the recipe but felt it needed one more egg for the double batch. Probably depends on the bread crumbs, plus I used smaller eggs. This were still great warmed up in the microwave. Just added a squeeze of fresh lemon before adding a dollop of sauce.
I especially loved the sauce and felt the yogurt makes it even better. I'm considering baking up a batch and then freezing them, thinking they could be thawed in the microwave, then finished up in a skillet. Maybe mini ones on a toothpick with the sauce would make a good appetizer as well.
I really want to try this recipe and am just beginning to live without gluten in my diet. Could someone recommend to me how I could prepare these without the breadcrumbs?
My husband and I are always looking for ways to integrate more fish into out diets, and canned salmon is an economical, easy way to do it. If you can get over the canned salmon looks, you can acutally just crush up the bones and skin and eat everything that comes out of the can - more calcium for you. I used fat free plain greek yogurt for the sauce because that's what I had in the fridge and it made the sauce super creamy. Sauce definitely makes the cakes. Yum.
