This was a great alternative to the old-fashioned salmon cakes I grew up. I did get a weird aftertaste, but I think that was the spinach, which I actually may not like. (I've only recently started eating it, but normally smother the taste with cheese.) I used brown rice instead of couscous, since I had it on hand, but I tried to mash it a little before mixing it in. I used the one egg I had instead of two yolks. I followed the earlier advice of using the 1/3 C measuring cup sprayed with PAM to make patties, which worked great! (made 10) Perhaps if I actually cooked on regular basis, I would have already known this revolutionary strategy! I also baked instead of frying, because other salmon cakes have funked up the whole house for 2 days when fried and I didn't want to risk it. The garlic mayo was just okay to me, but it may have been because I used bottled minced garlic, rather than crushed. I liked it better with a sauce from another recipe of equal parts honey mustard and mayo, which neutralized the aforementioned aftertaste. I'll be making this again!
