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.

Recipes looks good so it's on my "to try" list.
Handy tip for fresh breadcrumbs - freeze left over rolls and when breadcrumbs are needed, just grate from frozen. Works like a dream.

Best Salmon Patties ever!

Simple basic recipe for the first time. Add more seasonings to taste. I added lemon pepper & more mustard. Also, didn't have parsley, so added celery leaves & another celery stalk. My daughter loved them...my family of three both had two, since I used the smaller cans...2 (5.5 oz) which made 6 patties instead of 8. We all agreed that we should have these more often!

By first sauteing the veggies in EVOO made these so more flavorable!

Due to my own lack of planning I was forced to make a some changes and it still turned out great. I ended up using Arctic Char instead of salmon. I poached it in salt water with lemon. No fresh breadcrumbs so I added about a 1/4 cup water to the ones I had and it was too hot to turn on the oven so I cooked them in a non-stick pan with a little canola oil. The cakes held together well and were great with the dill sauce-its a necessity.

Actually got me to eat fish

Yummy everyone in my family loved this! I added mushroom and chives. I doubled the recipe and did not feel the need to bake it after pan frying lightly in olive oil. Will make again and again!

Great way to use leftover salmon

Excellent recipe for leftover salmon. I had 3/4 cup of salmon so cut the recipe in half which was perfect for 2 people. Used 1/2 cup of Panko breadcrumbs and 1 egg. Also added a touch of salt. Saw no need to put it in the oven. Browned patties on both sides in a saute pan, and they were perfect. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Easy and tasty
