  1. Combine the first nine ingredients and mix well. Spoon into 8 greased muffin cups using 1/4 cup for each.
  2. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes or until browned.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour and form a smooth paste. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice, salt, and cayenne. Serve over patties.

I am only reviewing the lemon sauce and the method, because I used my regular ingredients for the patties. I love the method. Measured 1/4 cup into 8 muffin cups and it worked just right. Only cooked for 25 minutes (my recipe has less liquid, maybe that was why). Enjoyed the lemon sauce, but next time I will add another tablespoon or two of lemon juice to make it more lemony. Thanks for saving me from having to make patties and stand and fry!

This was very easy to put togther & tasted pretty good, though we found it a bit bland. I made 6, rather than 8 patties & even with the larger size, found them a bit overdone at 45 minutes. If there hadn't been any sauce, I think they would have been a bit dry.

This was quite easy to make and had a nice flavor. The sauce was a great finish for these salmon cakes. Thanks for an easy and economical recipe!
