SUGGESTIONS FOR SUBSTITUTIONS AND HOW TO REDUCE THE FAT I have made these a few times and have adlibbed each time. I've substitued dried bread crumbs for a combo of fresh bread crumbs and crushed bran flakes or crushed vegetables crackers. I have also used firm tofu when I didn't have enough salmon. I used left over salmon teriyaki which adds a wonderful flavour as well. I prefer fresh herbs and add twice the amount when using fresh herbs instead of dry. I added a bit of lemon zest as I didn't have lemon pepper which was very nice as well. If you use a non-stick pan you don't need any butter which will cut the fat in half. Use low fat mayo and the fat is further reduced without compromising flavour. There's lots you can do to adlib but you MUST have the lemon aioli with these salmon cakes. This is what makes this recipe SPECTACULAR.

I didn't try the salmon cakes because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, but I did make the aioli. It was delicious! Thanks for another great recipe.

These are WONDERFUL Salmon Cakes. I was a little skeptical when I read some of the ingredients, however I did follow the recipe, but cut back on the dill in the cakes, and left out the horseradish in the aioli. So delicious... I can't wait to make them again. My husband loved them too.

These were great. I looked through alot of the salmon cakes recipe and as usual I felt the your recipe included the ingredients I liked. I served on a homemade burger bun (a Kittencal recipe of course!) with the aioli sauce and tomato. I added parsley to the patties as I had bought the parsley already. Thank you Kitten.

I make this recipe also, and we both just love It!!!! The Aioli is also good for other fish. I use red onions rather than green onions and also Panko rather than the bread crumbs. So-o-o good! Thanks for posting this!

I enjoyed the flavors in these patties and enjoyed the sauce too! I decreased the amount of dill to 1/2 tsp.(personal preference). Thanks!

We enjoyed the cakes very much, I didn't make the aioli, but the salmon cakes were really great, I used leftover cooked grilled salmon, and the next time I make this, I will make it with the aioli, I can't wait to try it, as always a wonderful recipe Kitty! thank you.

My 5 star rating applies to the salmon cakes - they held together well & the taste was fantastic! I poached a couple of salmon fillets & used roasted garlic mayo; I was heavy on the onions, light on the cayenne & included 1/2 tsp lemon pepper. The amount of aioli seemed excessive for the number of cakes; I suggest scaling the quantities in half. It was quite a contrast to the fish but the flavour was too intense for us. I look forward to this dish again plain or with tartar sauce. Thanx Carol!
