This recipe was published in Cooking Light. I make it a bit different than it originally appeared, though (I don't use fat-free mayonnaise, saltines, etc. and also add some additional ingredients to suit my taste). If you would like to make the original version, just stick with the fat-free items and omit the last 4 items in the ingredient list (mayo through Tabasco) and you will have the original recipe. Prep time includes 20 minutes chilling time for the salmon cakes.
