Salmon Cakes With Lemon Herb Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by yetunde_zannou

These salmon cakes are super easy to make and quite savory. I just looked on the back of the Chicken of the Sea Pink Salmon package and saw the recipe. I had all the other ingredients around the house...a real plus. I replaced the horseradish with spicy brown mustard because that's what I had. The cakes are extremely flavorful alone--the sauce just adds to it. Enjoy.

Didn't measure up at all, but didn't follow the recipe to the t. Made our own breadcrumbs, used a different sauce with it which was lovely - the salmon we poached ourselves, but everything else. Took a lot longer than expected as well.
