Salmon Cakes With Chili Mayonnaise Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by personalchef

This really is a different salmon patty recipe. It has finely chopped celery, bell pepper, onion, and dill pickles. You can choose to use chopped capers in place of the dill pickels. Chili Mayo is way too easy.

I made this for dinner last night and it was very good! I removed the skin and the bones from the canned salmon first and subbed two shallots for the red onion, but other than that followed the recipe.The chili mayonnaise has a nice little kick to it which can be increased by adding more chili sauce. I think this would also be good on a toasted bun with lettuce, maybe some onion, and the chili mayo.Thanks for posting this- it goes into my "keeper" file!
