    Very Good
    Easy and yummy! I added some diced red pepper and used non-fat greek yogurt in place of the mayo. This is a keeper. - 4/3/11

    Needs tweaking. It tasted OK but definitely not Cajun. I could hardly taste the spice. But I will use this recipe as a basis to make some that are spicy enough for my family's tastes. - 4/20/10

    I wasn't crazy about the recipe for salmon cakes in the nutrition planner, but this recipe is great! It added just the right ammount of zing without adding lots of extra calories or fat. - 12/29/09
