    Delicious! I've been making these since I was young. I use scallion instead of onion and did not drain all the liquid from the salmon. That made the cakes moist. I also add a few dashes of my favorite hot sauce for a kick and some bread crumbs to help bind it. - 6/6/11

    These were very tasty! I pureed some red pepper and celery to add veggies, and ended up needing about a tbsp of bread crumbs to hold it together but it was a great recipe I will be making again. - 3/21/11

    Can't wait to try these. I know that I will be using oats as a filler, and probably vidalia onion for sweetness and flavor. I have a can of crabmeat I've been waiting to use; so that's my plan. - 7/21/10

    This was absolutely delicious! I added a little bit of dill for flavor and some potato flakes for binding. I served it on a whole wheat bagel thin and topped the salmon cake with some avocado slices. It was so yummy I definitely have to make this again. - 7/20/10

    Like others have stated, you'll need to add some breadcrumbs or something to keep it all together. Other than that, it's a great recipe. Quick and easy. I put the leftover salmon cakes on an Alternative bagel in my lunch - 7/12/10

    I skipped the egg and added two tablespoons of organic Italian bread crumbs so it would hold together and add flavor. I also sauteed the onions in a tablespoon of olive oil before I added it to the salmon cake. I served it on a cup of corn and the combination was very tasty.

    Healthy and delicious. I had to modify slightly because I used the foil packages of salmon. I'm not really sure how that affected the nutrition totals. I add a little onion and some crushed saltines and my husband tops his with yellow mustard. - 2/5/11

  • Ive prepared this meal with other kind of fish too and it always works. Add any salad or some greens and you get a perfect meal.
    To hold it together I just add more egg and to fry it I use one sprays. I spray the oil on the pan and it works perfectly. :-)) - 12/14/09

  • This recipe looks great. However, I will probably use dry rolled oats to keep the fish together. Also, since salmon is so expensive, will I use either a 12 ounce to 16 ounce can of mackeral or two 6 ounce cans of tuna. Will drain off the liquid first, so the cakes aren't so fishy. - 9/15/08

  • My mother made these a lot, but added cracker crumbs. I use gluten free crackers now...they're still great. You can also use mackerel for variety rather than salmon...less expensive.
