I used alterations from three previous reviews, I substituted 10 ritz crackers for the bread. And used parmesan cheese instead of the flour. My husband is on a low-carb diet and this was perfect for him. I did add one more egg too as a binder. The sauce I made to go with it was 1 tablespoon dijon mustard mixed with 2 tablespoons of mayo. This is a great dipping sauce for chicken cordon bleu as well. He loved it and so did I and I'm not a fish lover. Wow! will definitely make this one again. Also baked it as one of the reviews suggested too! 375 for 20 min.

This is the first time one of the recipes off this site was a bit of a disaster. I think it called for far too much bread crumbs. Perhaps next try I will cut back on the crumbs and perhaps add one more egg. It was very dry and failed to stay together for me. Having said that it wasn't too bad in the taste dept. but turned more into a scramble egg presentation rather than patties.

These are SO delicious!! I dusted the patties with parmesan instead of flour- it made them really crispy outside, tender inside. A new family favorite!!

Delicious! :) This is fine resteraunt quality! I buy 2 large cans of salmon you have to pick the bones/skin out of.. because it is much tastier than the only meat cans. Reserve a bit of juice incase your pattys are too dry. I would add a few tablespoons of the salmon juice and extra bread crumbs if it needs more. This gave me about 8 salmon cakes. Also added one extra egg. The rest of the recipe I followed exactly. My kids LOVED these and I'm going to choose this recipe over an old favorite recipe from now on. I think the chopped onion is great in it. (was a bit curious how that would turn out) I wouldnt use the onion powder over it personally.

I served this recipe for the first time at a family party. Everyone loved it, even people who don't usually eat salmon. My only change to the recipe was I baked the salmon cakes at 375 for 20 minutes on each side. Thanks for the recipe.

Absolutely delicious. I used 12 oz leftover grilled sockeye salmon instead of canned and doubled the amount of hot pepper sauce as we like things a little more flavorful (it definitely was not spicy). I only used half the recommended amount of butter and olive oil, and that was still more than enough. I served the salmon cakes with a dollop of sour cream horseradish on the side (1T prepared horseradish stirred into 3/8 cup lite sour cream) and it was fantastic. This is what I'm doing with leftover salmon from here on out!

Excellent. Baked them at 375 for 20 mins and then browned them in a pan. Used fresh leftover smoked salmon and used 2 eggs instead of one. Thanks for the recipe!
